Jamie Carragher advised coach Klopp to completely switch Alexander-Arnold to the midfield position to save money on the transfer.
Alexander-Arnold is playing impressively in the role of right-back and central midfielder in recent times. Legendary Jamie Carragher believes Trent is the perfect fit to play in the midfield. Carragher advised Klopp to switch Alexander-Arnold to midfield instead of spending tons of money to bring in new midfielders in the summer.
“If Trent plays in midfield, he could save Liverpool up to £100m. One thing that we don’t see much of from Alexander-Arnold in his career are goals from outside the box. But if he continues to play in midfield, he will get 5-10 goals a season. We’ve seen Alexander-Arnold’s ability in free kick situations.”
Liverpool still have to recruit at least one more midfielder in the upcoming summer transfer window. The preferred name is Alexis Mac Allister of Brighton. This is the target of Liverpool after deciding to withdraw from the signing of Jude Bellingham from Dortmund.
Liverpool are struggling to win tickets to the Champions League next season. Currently, Klopp’s army is only 1 point behind the 4th ranked team, Man United.
Liverpool have racked up six consecutive wins since Alexander-Arnold was allowed more midfield appearances. Thanks to that, the opportunity to finish in the top 4 of Liverpool is increasing gradually. The next opponent of The Kop will be the team struggling to relegation, Leicester.
