Liverpool-linked Fulham fullback Antonee Robinson admits that he could leave the club during the summer if an acceptable offer arrives

Fulham left-back Antonee Robinson admits he could leave the club if an acceptable offer emerges amid the interest from Liverpool. The 26-year-old played a pivotal role for his London club as they finished thirteenth in the Premier League last season.

Standing at 1.83 metres, Robinson has the physical strength and athleticism to challenge opponents in both aerial and ground duels. The 26-year-old is defensively sharp and makes a lot of tackles, clearances and interceptions to keep the left flank secure.

Offensively, the United States international uses his pace to drive past opponents and get down the byline or inside channels. He has strong technical abilities to deliver threatening crosses and create chances in the final third of Fulham’s attacking phases.

Despite playing as an attacking-minded left-back, Robinson has a good sense of positioning and makes fantastic recoveries to track-back opponents. He rakes up a high percentage of aerial duels win which is not common for a fullback in modern football.

The 26-year-old made 44 appearances in all competitions for Fulham, contributing seven assists and accumulating six yellow cards last season. Liverpool Echo reports that Liverpool, Chelsea, and Manchester City want to sign Robinson from Fulham during the summer transfer window.

Robinson told The Athletic that he is happy to remain at Fulham but he could leave for a right offer. He said:

“I signed the deal because I was very happy at Fulham. I want to keep on developing, I’m very settled here, I love the club. It wasn’t a difficult decision to sign. Interest from other people is great. Obviously, it comes down to if someone wanted me enough to pay what Fulham would want, and if Fulham saw that as a good idea, then I’d leave.”

Liverpool struggled with an injury crisis last season when they lost both natural left-backs Kostas Tsimikas and Andy Robertson. The Reds deployed versatile centre-back Joe Gomez at the left and he delivered fantastic performances without any grievances.

Nevertheless, Tsimikas could leave the club after struggling with both form and injury during the last season. The Greek international has served Liverpool with honour and needs to be at a club where he can play regularly.

The only problem with any potential deal for Robinson is his age as he turns 27 in August. Liverpool prefers to spend big on younger talents even though Robinson is in his prime years. Furthermore, Owen Beck has proven his worth during the loan spell with Dundee and he could play deputy to Robinson.
