Red Bull Salzburg’s capture of 19-year-old Ignace Van der Brempt from Club Brugge, has given Liverpool the chance to sign a player from RB Salzburg who would be ideal as Trent Alexander-Arnold’s deputy.

The player in question is Rasmus Kristensen.

The 24-year-old Danish full-back has a very similar play styling to Trent Alexander-Arnold and could be the perfect deputy for the Englishman. Both have very similar playing styles and Kristensen will fit Liverpool’s playing style also.

Like Trent, Kristensen also loves putting crosses into the box. He averages 4.45 crosses per 90, very similar to Trent’s 4.58 crosses. He makes 1.24 shot assists per 90, a little lesser than Trent’s 2.27 but still high for a fullback. His dribbling stats are also similar to that of Trent, with Kristensen completing 54% of his dribbles compared to Trent’s 60%. (stats Fotmob)

Liverpool have been looking for Trent’s deputy for some time now and they might have the perfect time to sign one.

The fact that Salzburg have signed Van der Brempt as a right-back shows that they are ready for life without Kristensen. If they are ready to sign to listen to offers for the 24-year-old then Liverpool should make the move quickly.

Not only would Kristensen not cost a fortune, but he also fits the FSG’s module for signing players. He is just below his prime and can develop into a world-class player at Anfield.

Liverpool have a good relationship with Red Bull Salzburg and signing him will not be very difficult for the Reds.

Liverpool can replicate the same transfer trick they used for Kostas Tsikimas.

Kristensen has already proven himself in the champions league and we know that he is a player with a lot of class.

Do you think Kristensen would be a good deputy to Trent Alexander-Arnold? Can he finally fill the right-back gap that Liverpool have been missing for some time?
