Antonee Robinson has admitted he could leave Fulham this summer if an acceptable offer is tabled - with Liverpool one of several Premier League clubs linked with signing the left-back.

The 26-year-old defender has four years remaining on his current deal at Craven Cottage but has been linked with moves to Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City after an impressive season with Marco Silva's side.

But despite insisting he "loves" Fulham, Robinson has revealed he could leave Craven Cottage this summer if a team is able to match the club's asking price.

“I signed the deal because I was very happy at Fulham," Robinson told The Athletic. "I want to keep on developing, I’m very settled here, I love the club. It wasn’t a difficult decision to sign. Interest from other people is great...

"Obviously, it comes down to if someone wanted me enough to pay what Fulham would want, and if Fulham saw that as a good idea, then I’d leave.

“But until that happens, and I have no idea if it would, I’m just looking forward to the Copa and then starting next year with Fulham — pushing on, and trying to help the team get to even better finishing spots.”

If Robinson were to move to Anfield, he would help ease the concern around the number of home-grown players in Liverpool's Premier League squad. For the 2023-24 season, the Reds failed to fulfil the home-grown quota after losing the likes of Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner.

But with the 26-year-old defender hailing from Milton Keynes, he qualifies for a home-grown status in the Premier League - despite representing the United States - and would join Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Curtis Jones, Vitezslav Jaros and Caoimhin Kelleher as the home-grown members of Arne Slot's squad.
