Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp considering Hull City left-back Josh Tymon – reports

The chase for a new left-back goes on and teenage starlet Josh Tymon is one name the Reds are considering, according to reports on Monday.

Liverpool have yet to add to their defensive ranks despite rumours being ongoing for a number of months surrounding key targets—but moves failed to materialise for each of Virgil van Dijk and Ryan Sessegnon.

The latter was a rumoured option for left-back as Jurgen Klopp looks to add competition for James Milner and Alberto Moreno, and Hull’s Josh Tymon is now reportedly wanted for the same role.

ESPNFC suggest the Reds, Stoke, Watford and Aston Villa all want to sign the 18-year-old, who is out of contract this summer at Hull.

The relegated club would be due a compensation fee as Tymon is under 18 if he moves to another English side, similar to that which sees the Reds expected to pay around £3 million to Chelsea for Dominic Solanke.

Tymon played 12 times for Hull last term, five of those appearances in the Premier League, as he began to break through to the first-team scene.

His team-mate—and positional rival—at Hull, Andrew Robertson, has also been suggested as a potential target for Liverpool this summer at left-back.
