Trent ‘dropped’ & goalkeeper transfer likely – Latest Liverpool FC News

Trent Alexander-Arnold is expected to lose his place in England’s starting lineup vs. Slovenia, while exit updates have emerged regarding Adrian and Luis Diaz.


Trent set for England axe

England have been unsurprisingly dull in their opening two matches of Euro 2024, with Alexander-Arnold one of many who has struggled to replicate his club form.

According to The Athletic, Liverpool’s vice-captain is now set to be dropped by Gareth Southgate for the Three Lions’ clash with Slovenia on Tuesday, with Chelsea‘s Conor Gallagher replacing him.

It all seems very predictable, in terms of Alexander-Arnold being made a scapegoat in a role he has still rarely played in during his career.

We can’t wait for him to return to Liverpool, where he is fully appreciated.

  • Adrian has reportedly agreed a contract to rejoin former club Real Betis – which makes a goalkeeper signing likely for Liverpool
  • Darwin Nunez has responded to his critics over missed chances, saying he will “never give up” – it sums him up, really
  • Declan Rice has passionately defended Alexander-Arnold, which shows how England players feel about their under-fire team-mate

Matches of the night

Matches of the night are Croatia vs. Italy and Albania vs. Spain (both 8pm BST), as Group B of the Euros reaches its conclusion.

Croatia must win to overtake Italy in second place, while victory for Albania would also put them on four points and likely book a spot in the last 16.
