Liverpool are set to increase their mammoth offer for Naby Keita as they look to wrap up an £8million deal for Hull City left-back Andy Robertson.

The ECHO understands the Reds will test RB Leipzig's resolve once again having had an initial bid of £57million for Keita rejected last week.

The Guinea midfielder is desperate to sign for Liverpool and has urged Leipzig to grant him his dream move to Anfield.

The hope is that a fee of around £65million (75million Euros) will convince the Bundesliga outfit to do business.

Liverpool are in advanced talks with Hull over the signing of Robertson.

The deal for Robertson won't go through in time for the Scotland international to fly off with the Reds squad to Hong Kong on Sunday, but the 23-year-old increasingly looks Anfield bound.

The ECHO revealed last month that Robertson was back on the Reds' radar having missed out on the signing of Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon. They had also inquired about Monaco left-back Benjamin Mendy, but were told he was joining Manchester City.

The Glasgow-born 23-year-old made 115 appearances for Hull following his £3million move from Dundee United in 2014.

Released by Celtic as a teenager, the attacking full-back launched his career at Queen's Park before being snapped up by Dundee United. Three years ago Robertson was crowned the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year.
