Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has revealed that he believes Trent Alexander-Arnold can one day move higher up the field and become a 'Kevin De Bruyne-type player' for his side.
Alexander-Arnold has quickly become one of the most highly rated young players in world football, having already won the Champions League once in his short career to date.
The 20-year-old broke the record for the most assists in a Premier League season by a defender last term and has made an equally promising start to the new campaign.
As a result of his fine performances, ex-Reds centre back Carragher has claimed that the Englishman could - in the future - be even more influential for his team by playing further up the field.
He told Viasport (as quoted by Metro):
"But at the moment you wouldn’t think about moving position because he is playing so well."
"As a defender and playing at this level and how important he is to the team, he is possibly the most creative player in the team from right full-back...
Although the former Liverpool captain believes he is a 'superstar' and could certainly become a very influential player in a more advanced role, he has added that Alexander-Arnold should continue to develop his game defensively at right-back, in order to iron out the flaws in his game.
