Reds ‘expecting’ Alexander-Arnold to miss Euros after ‘no contact’ with England
Trent Alexander-Arnold looks set to miss out on the England squad for the upcoming European Championships this summer: following reports, there has been no contact between the two parties.
Alexander-Arnold has underwhelmed for a Liverpool side who rescued Champions League football, with victory against West Brom, over the weekend.
The Liverpool wing-back missed out on Gareth Southgate's most recent squad for the World Cup qualifiers in late March.
And, despite being one of the first names on Southgate's team sheet last year, Alexander-Arnold's exile from the national team looks set to continue, according to a recent report from The Athletic.
The report states that sources at Liverpool aren't hopeful about Alexander-Arnold's chances with no contract between the club and England, however, that stance could change in the next 24 hours.
It's believed that Southgate will opt for Kyle Walker, Reece James, and Kieran Tripper ahead of the Liverpudlian – when he selected his 26-man squad on Tuesday.
His boss, Jurgen Klopp, was surprised at his exclusion earlier on this season: "I was surprised when he didn't get the call-up. I respect the decision, of course, I do. But I didn't understand it.
"I am a manager myself, I make decisions every day, every weekend, every midweek about team selections and squad selections.
"We always make decisions that other people probably do not understand.
"If Trent Alexander-Arnold is not in the squad of England then England must have an extremely good squad, let me say it like this."
