Robbie Fowler urges Liverpool to sign cover for Andy Robertson after winning the Premier League title

Robbie Fowler believes Liverpool’s priority in the upcoming transfer window is to sign competition for Andy Robertson.

Jurgen Klopp’s side took one step closer to the Premier League title on Wednesday evening with a 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Anfield.

If Manchester City fail to beat Chelsea on Thursday night, that would be enough for Klopp’s men to secure their first league title in 30 years.

Liverpool, meanwhile, were favourites to complete the signing of Timo Werner before Chelsea completed a deal for the RB Leipzig striker earlier this month.

But Fowler admits it would be difficult for Klopp to strengthen his attack and is keen to see a new left-back arrive at Anfield this summer.

Asked where he believes Liverpool should strengthen in the transfer market, Fowler told Premier League Productions: ‘I think there’s obviously going to be a little bit of talk about Mo Salah again, there’s going to be talk about Sadio Mane, good players are always going to be linked with top European clubs.

‘For a player to come into this team is going to be hard to make them any better because they are a really good side.

‘Where I’d like to see them build, you think of the game against against Everton where they struggled on the left-hand side, James Milner will never, ever let you down, but coming into that left-back position if Andy Robertson does get injured again, or has a little bit of a dip in form, I think they need someone to cover Andy Robertson, just to strengthen the squad, certainly in that area.’

Fowler also believes that Klopp will continue to play a full-strength team for the remainder of the Premier League campaign, despite calls for him to give more first-team chances to Liverpool’s academy players.

‘I think there’s obviously a bit of clamour for that but I’m sure when the title is won I think Jurgen will probably go for records,’ said Fowler.

‘He’ll want to get over 100 points, he’ll want to remain unbeaten for the remaining games.

‘Before tonight I struggled to see them winning all of their games, or getting as many points as possible. But having seen the performance [against Crystal Palace] I’ve got a little sneaky feeling that it will be hard for any team to stop them.

‘I think that’ll be Jurgen’s thoughts. As much as he’ll give a few kids a little go, I’m not sure they will start and play a large number of games remaining. I think he’ll try to go for maximum points.’
