Trent Alexander-Arnold was burdened with the responsibility of being Liverpool’s first choice right-back for an entire season. At just 19 years of age that proved to be a tall order for the youngster. With Nathaniel Clyne developing into an injury-prone player, Liverpool’s right-back options for next season are looking scarce. If Jurgen Klopp wants to truly build upon a 4th placed finish and win the title, a new RB is needed this summer. We take a look at five RBs that Liverpool should target in the summer.
Despite playing the majority of his career at left-back, it is well known in France that Djibril Sidibé is one of the best RBs in Ligue 1. In defence, the Frenchman is a competent 1v1 defender that’s quick and sturdy in the tackle.
In attack, Sidibé is a different animal that excels in playing intricate one-twos in the final third. On top of that, the 25-year-old is an excellent crosser of the ball, regularly varying between whipped and lofted crosses.
