Jürgen Klopp could find short-term solution for Liverpool midfield with long-awaited experiment



In Liverpool’s latest midfield crisis, Jürgen Klopp could be on the verge of satisfying any expert’s desire with an experiment that has been talked about for years.

Jürgen Klopp could find short-term solution for Liverpool midfield with long-awaited experiment

With days to go before the end of the summer transfer window, it looks increasingly unlikely that Liverpool will solve their midfield crisis with another new signing in the middle of the park.

Instead, it’s more likely that Jurgen Klopp will be forced to solve the problem internally, perhaps through experimentation or by promoting someone else from the club’s academy.

During the club’s previous defensive crisis, the Liverpool manager showed a willingness to try different things. He played Jordan Henderson and Fabinho at centre-back and promoted several players from the academy to test them in that role.

This time Klopp could be forced to make equally drastic changes and there is an obvious solution that pundits and the media have been talking about for years and which may well be the answer to the Liverpool boss’ woes.

During his early academic career, Trent Alexander-Arnold was primarily used as a central winger and midfielder. Here he played his first full season at U18 level before moving on to the role of right back, where the academy coaches thought he would have a better chance of making it to the first team.

The rest is, of course, history.

Alexander-Arnold has since established himself as one of the best right-backs in the world and he is likely to stay there for a long time. However, that doesn’t stop the experts from constantly asking whether or not he could be used better in midfield. In the midst of a mid-park injury crisis, and given that Klopp now has two proper backups for Alexander-Arnold in Joe Gomez and Calvin Ramsay, now may be the best time ever to see the Academy graduate in the role, too. if only temporarily.

Alexander-Arnold has the creativity and range of passing that can bring stability in the middle of the park for Liverpool, while he also possesses the energy and defensive ability to help win balls overhead for the Reds. This is exactly how Jürgen Klopp likes to have his midfielders play.

It’s an experiment that may not work, but it’s worth the risk. Given his exceptional qualities, it would be interesting to see what Alexander-Arnold would be like playing in the middle of the park and if Klopp can pull off his inner Kevin de Bruyne, which already equals his exit from right back. Not to mention his ability to hit the ball from a great distance which can be best used in the middle of the park where he could get into better situations to hit the ball into the goal.

Desperate times call for desperate measures, but perhaps this experiment wouldn’t be such a desperate call, and it would surely fulfill the desire of many who have longed for years to see Alexander-Arnold rise higher in the field.

The only question is: will Klopp be forced to change positions? Time will tell.
