Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold could be destined to make a move further up the pitch according to former player Graeme Souness.
“I think the boy could play anywhere in midfield,” Souness said on Sky Sports. “He started out as a central midfield player and then saw an opening at right-back.
“You would be reluctant to take him away from where he is because a large part of Liverpool’s attacking play comes from him and [Andrew] Robertson. They have high energy levels, and when they get into the last third, they can deliver.
“Looking at it now, you’ve just won the league, you are the current European and world champions, so if it ain’t broken, why try to fix it?
“But the modern defender today, at the top clubs, has to be able to take the ball and play and deliver in the final third, so why not?”
Alexander-Arnold has made waves over the last two seasons with his attacking prowess and delivery both from out wide and from a deadball situation among some of the best in the world.
The quiet natured right-back is considered one of the best in his position in the world let alone the Premier League although his defending can be questionable at times.
This is what has provoked the continued talk of him moving further up the pitch where his strengths going forward and attacking ould be put to best use without the need to defend.
A slick passer of the ball, Alexander-Arnold has racked up 12 assists this Premier League campaign while his terrific-free-kick ability has also helped him find the net on two occasions.
While moving away from the comfort of RB while undoubtedly put more pressure on him in terms of position in both the Liverpool and England starting XI, there is no doubt he has the talent and ability to make it further up the pitch with the right guidance.
