Liverpool linked with shock move for Man City's Kyle Walker to unlock Trent Alexander-Arnold new role

Liverpool linked with shock move for Man City's Kyle Walker to unlock Trent Alexander-Arnold new role

This would be some move.

Rumours are circulating that Liverpool are planning a shock transfer attempt which could unlock Trent Alexander-Arnold's new international position at club level.

Alexander-Arnold, 24, impressed in England's midfield again on Monday night as the Three Lions ran out 7-0 winners against North Macedonia in their Euro 2024 qualifier at Old Trafford.

It was the second game running that England boss Gareth Southgate played Alexander-Arnold in a midfield three alongside Declan Rice and Liverpool teammate Jordan Henderson, with the trio also starting last week's 4-0 win over Malta.

While Alexander-Arnold thrived in an inverted full-back role for Liverpool at the end of last season, he is yet to be consistently played as a full-time midfielder by Jurgen Klopp.

But there are rumours Liverpool are plotting a shock signing which could allow Alexander-Arnold to fully move into midfield next season.

According to the Daily Mail, there have been suggestions Liverpool could attempt to sign England international Kyle Walker from Manchester City this summer.

Walker, 33, is now into the final year of his contract at the Etihad and has been linked with a move away from the club.

A more traditional right-back than Alexander-Arnold, Walker could replace the Liverpool defender in the Reds' back four – paving the way for the younger England international to move into midfield.

Could Liverpool sign Walker?

It is unclear if Klopp would consider changing Alexander-Arnold's current role for Liverpool, given the success he had playing as in an inverted full-back role in the final weeks of the campaign.

City may also be reluctant to sell Walker to a direct rival after the success of Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko at Arsenal.

The Daily Mail claim Walker is keen to remain at City, who have opened talks with the former Tottenham defender over a new deal.

"Bayern Munich have been discussing a £15m move to sign the 33-year-old but it is understood he would prefer to extend his time at City if possible," added the report.
