Trent Alexander-Arnold set for NEW role that could transform his career

Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold is set for a new role that could transform his career going forward. Euro 2024 is going to be one to watch.

Trent Alexander-Arnold started in midfield for England in midweek before moving to his more well-known right-back role. The Liverpool star even got a goal as England won 3-0 against Bosnia & Herzegovina.

Questions over the player's best position have persisted for years now, of course, but it appears he might be set for a new one at Euro 2024. That's according to the Mirror, who claim Gareth Southgate is 'leaning heavily' towards starting Alexander-Arnold alongside Declan Rice at the base of his midfield.

That would be a new starting role for the Scouser, who has typically played a slightly more advanced one when deployed in midfield. But it's one that could transform his career.

This is particularly notable for Liverpool, given the changes coming this summer. Arne Slot is the new manager and with him comes a new playing style.

That style will see a change in midfield, above all, with Slot typically using a 4-2-3-1. In other words, the kind of system England will play at Euro 2024.

So if Alexander-Arnold thrives in that deep midfield role, it's not even a question that Slot will want to see if he can do it for Liverpool. The level of success there could even transform Alexander-Arnold's permanent role on the pitch.

If he takes to it naturally, he may be seen as a midfielder going forward who can also play at right-back, rather than vice versa. And with that would come changes for several players at Liverpool, with a new star pushing for a midfield place and a vacancy at right-back.

But we'll need to see how it goes for England first. Not too long to wait on what will be a massive summer for both Alexander-Arnold and Liverpool.
