Dwight Yorke has urged Manchester United to make a surprise move for Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The 25-year-old has been at Liverpool since the agent of six and has won seven major titles since he was given his debut by Jurgen Klopp in 2016.

However, Yorke believes United may have an opportunity to sign Alexander-Arnold if he does not hit it off under new manager Arne Slot.

‘I’m not sure Trent Alexander-Arnold would want to leave Liverpool as it’s his boyhood club, but Liverpool will be under transition now Jurgen Klopp has left. Maybe, Alexander-Arnold can evolve as a midfielder under Slot,’ Yorke told Best Online Poker Sites.

‘This could be another opportunity where, if Liverpool don’t perform under Slot and Alexander-Arnold becomes unhappy, Man United should do everything they can to sign him.

‘I was the first person to suggest that Man United should have signed Leroy Sane started to become frustrated at Man City when he was on the bench frequently, now he’s one of the best players in Germany.

‘Alexander-Arnold may have a similar opportunity which Man United should pounce on. Obviously, there is history between the clubs and Alexander-Arnold will know that as an Englishman, but it can be an opportunity to look out for.’

Meanwhile, Yorke believes Aston Villa striker Jhon Duran, who is wanted by Chelsea, could develop into a better striker than Nicolas Jackson.

‘With Jhon Duran, Aston Villa need to make a football decision,’ Yorke said.

‘If it works for both parties that Duran goes to Chelsea, then it’s probably the best solution. It depends on if it works for Unai Emery and how he can replace Duran.

‘I did like Duran, I don’t think he had enough opportunities so I’m not able to determine whether he’d be a success or failure for Aston Villa.

‘Whether he’ll be a success at Chelsea is another story, I can’t see him getting many more minutes there then he does at Aston Villa, since Chelsea already have Nicolas Jackson. I do, however, think he has the potential to become a better striker than Jackson.’
