We may see a position change for Trent Alexander-Arnold to allow Ki-Jana Hoever to progress.
The Dutch teenager scored his first goal for the Reds in their 2-0 win over MK Dons. But the goal aside, he’s clearly a huge talent and one Liverpool will have high hopes for.
But there’s one glaringly obvious problem – Liverpool already have an elite right-back and he’s still young himself.
Alexander-Arnold may well be the best around right now. He’s the record holder for assists from a defender in the Premier League, part of the league’s tightest defence, and capable of moments like against Barcelona last season.
And at 20 years old, he could hold the role down for over a decade.
But that’s not necessarily a good thing if it prevents Hoever from breaking through. Perhaps the teenager could move to centre-back, but both Joe Gomez and Sepp van den Berg have their sights there.
Perhaps the best option, then, is for Alexander-Arnold to move position for Hoever.
He used to play centre midfield in the youth set up and he may well be the natural successor to Jordan Henderson. Henderson has played a much more advanced, wider role in midfield and it could suit Alexander-Arnold.
It’s a gamble but it would allow another incredibly talented kid into the first-team. If Alexander-Arnold can still perform there, it’s the answer Liverpool are looking for.
