The respected journalist’s claim that Alexander-Arnold was set to receive good news about his summer sent Reds fans into party mode as they were thrilled that his latest season at Anfield was being rewarded.
One fan tweeted that this news was the reason they had turned on their Twitter notifications so they didn’t miss it, while another supporter stated that despite being 19-years-old, Alexander-Arnold had more than warranted his England opportunity.
The teenage right-back has been a regular for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season, featuring 33 times across all competitions.
Alexander-Arnold, along with putting in impressive defensive performances, has chipped in three goals and two assists to help his side’s attacking threat in his outings.
Fans will soon find out whether Joyce’s information is correct as Southgate is set to name his England squad on Wednesday afternoon, as reported by the BBC.

TAA, though only 19, has shown enough quality to be given the chance to represent England. Don't forget he put Sane in his pocket not once, but twice!
He is fantastic, has made some mistakes but is going to be an England RB for along time. Brilliant 1st season with Robertson also pic.twitter.com/HhQ69yNsAI
