​Lineker calls on Liverpool star Alexander-Arnold to make midfield switch

English pundit Gary Lineker wants to see Trent Alexander-Arnold playing as a midfielder.

The right-back is one of the reasons why the Reds have enjoyed so much success in the past few years.

However, his style of play with Liverpool is a lot more attack minded, compared to what England boss Gareth Southgate asks from his full backs.

Watching Alexander-Arnold as Liverpool beat Manchester United 4-2 at Old Trafford, Linekar tweeted: "2 wonder balls from @TrentAA already in this game.

"I'd love to see him play in midfield. His passing range is off the chart. Too good to be a fullback."
