Trent Alexander-Arnold’s future midfield role has been the constant theme in his career since his debut at Liverpool. It’s not surprising that this topic has followed Trent Alexander-Arnold since he was moved to a role as a fullback after climbing the ranks of Liverpool’s academy.
Liverpool’s academy graduate has the technical skills, ball-playing abilities and creativity to be a good candidate for midfield. Jurgen Klopp has recently shown it to Liverpool supporters by inverting his position in the midfield when they are in possession.
Gareth Southgate has used Alexander-Arnold exclusively in midfield for England while they were on recent international duty. Alexander-Arnold’s performance against Malta as the Three Lions Man of Match was impressive.
Alexander-Arnold has been undergoing a transformation in his role for the past six months. It would be no surprise to finally see him move to the midfield permanently during the next few seasons. He is at the height of his career, and ready for a new challenge.
The latest Liverpool transfer rumor should also be treated with caution, as it could indicate that Alexander-Arnold will make the switch to midfield. Depor reports that Liverpool has expressed interest in Bayer Leverkusen’s right-back Jeremie Frimpong.
The Dutch national, along with Virgil van Dijk, Cody Gakpo and others, is one of Xabi Alono’s Bayer Leverkusen stars, currently sitting two points ahead of Bayern Munich for first place in Bundesliga.
