Andrew Robertson has been touted as a potential departure from the KCOM Stadium this week with Burnley and Liverpool rumoured to be interested in the Scottish international.
The 23-year-old, who can play either at left-back or left midfield, has made over 100 appearances in all competitions for the Tigers but relegation from the Premier League has resulted in one of Hull’s most prized assets linked with a move away from the KCOM.
New Hull manager Leonid Slutsky will be looking to build a squad capable of immediate promotion back to the Premier League, but knows that some of his star players may leave the club this summer. That was the case last week, when young centre-half Harry Maguire left the club for Leicester City for a fee reported to be in the region of £17m.
If Robertson does leave Humberside this summer, then Leonid Slutsky should turn to Leeds United wondered Charlie Taylor as his replacement.
Taylor, a 23-year-old, Leeds United full-back made his debut for the Yorkshire outfit at the age of just 17 when he came on in a league cup match against Bradford City.
He has since gone on to have loan spells at Bradford, York City, Inverness CT and Fleetwood Town respectively, before returning to Leeds and playing a major part in this season’s 7th place Championship finish.
Leeds offered Taylor, a new two-year contract in May as his current deal runs out this summer, but with interest from Premier League clubs, it remains to be seen whether Taylor will stay at Elland Road beyond the summer window.
With that in mind, Hull are going to have to act quickly to sign the young fullback, but if they were to secure his signature he would be a terrific signing for them.
Hull fans… Would Taylor be a good signing? Could he make the difference next season? Let us know your thoughts!
