Footage Of Trent Alexander-Arnold Playing In Midfield For Liverpool Youth Sides

Footage Of Trent Alexander-Arnold Playing In Midfield For Liverpool Youth Sides

Trent Alexander-Arnold is arguably the best right-back in world football but plenty of people see his future lying in central midfield.

The 21-year-old played in midfield as a youngster before switching to the right side of defence and his ridiculous range of passing, technique and ability to create chances as well as go about his defensive duties suggest that he could be up for the task for the first team.

His highlights for the youth sides provide further evidence that he's got it in his locker to be deployed in a midfield role.

Wearing No 6, No 7 or even No 2 in the 10-minute video from ScoutNationHD, Alexander-Arnold can be seen spraying the ball out with ease and whipping in the deadly crosses that we've come to expect from him at Anfield.

Granted it's a lesser stage but his game hasn't changed all that much in all truth. He's been an utter revelation at Liverpool, assisting 12 goals in the Premier League this season and playing a key role in the club's sixth European Cup triumph last year.

The Ballon d'Or nominee has continued in the same vein this season for a record-breaking Liverpool side that are on the verge of winning their first league title for 30 years.

But going forward, will he revert to his natural position where his skill-set can be well and truly maximised?

Reds' legend Jamie Carragher believes it's an experiment worth exploring given TAA is "probably better on the ball" than Liverpool's current midfielders.

Speaking in October to talkSPORT, Carragher said: "I definitely see, going forward, if he [Alexander-Arnold] wanted to play that role [midfield] or if Liverpool have another right-back coming through or Liverpool wanted more creativity, there is no doubt.

"Those players have different strengths, but you could imagine him in that De Bruyne position - just tucked in on the right. You see the assists De Bruyne has from a different position than Trent, he's obviously wider and he's crossing it, De Bruyne is more passing it really."

Gary Lineker supported those claims back in November but Alexander-Arnold simply responded with, "One position at a time".
