Robertson’s ankle, Yoro transfer link & McConnell interest – Latest Liverpool FC News

Five clubs have already registered their interest in signing Liverpool youngster James McConnell, and Andy Robertson has discussed an injury he has nursed for months.


McConnell wanted by five clubs

According to a David Lynch exclusive for This Is Anfield, McConnell is being chased by a quintet of teams already this summer.

Interest in the 19-year-old appears to be strong, with Hull, Blackburn, Derby, Huddersfield and Birmingham all eyeing him up.

Lynch admits that it ‘remains to be seen’ if a loan move will happen, as was the plan under Jurgen Klopp, with ‘no clarification’ from Arne Slot or sporting director Richard Hughes yet.

McConnell played nine times for the Reds in the 2023/24 season, with his most notable performance coming against Chelsea as a substitute in the League Cup final.
