Trent Alexander-Arnold has hinted that he could one day play in central midfield under Jurgen Klopp after playing there for the Liverpool youth teams.

When asked by Gary Lineker, Trent admitted that he could play in central midfield.

He said: “When I was like 16 I was probably a centre defensive midfielder, somebody who liked to get on the ball and make things happen.

“That’s up to the manager. I’m happy to play wherever he puts me I think.

“Right now obviously he sees me as a full-back and I’m more than happy playing there. I think it’s important to bring different dimensions to the position.

 

“Obviously when I was growing up Ashley Cole came in and showed that you don’t have to just be a defender as a full-back. He came in and dominated going forward, brought a new dimension and changed the way full-backs are now.”

I believe that Liverpool should avoid playing Trent in midfield and instead capitalise on the fact that they already own a potentially world class attacking fullback.

Quality midfielders are far more common in Europe than top fullbacks and in Trent, the Reds have one of the most exciting. He’s a Scouser too.
