Liverpool star right-back Trent Alexander Arnold has penned down a new contract with The Reds that keeps him at the club for four more years until 2025.
There were talks and negotiations held last week and the 22-year-old is still in the plans of the club’s manager Jurgen Klopp.
Trent was born in Liverpool and is a club’s academy graduate. The Englishman has made 179 appearances for the club and made his debut in 2016 in EFL Cup. Since then, the player has been crucial in Jurgen Klopp’s team. He helped his side to win the UEFA Champions League in 2019 and the Premier League in 2020 after a 30-year title drought.
“I’m honoured to be given the opportunity and to be shown the trust in the club to be given an extension, so it was a no-brainer for me,” Alexander-Arnold told Liverpoolfc.com
Trent has also played in the 2018 World Cup but he doesn’t get much chance in the national team as England’s right-back options are stacked with Kyle Walker, Reece James and Kieren Trippier as main options.
The right-back is known for their attacking prowess and his crossing ability from the wings in the final third and have loads of assists registered to his name in the English top-flight league
This is a sign of relief for Liverpool as they have retained another player for a much longer period of time. Meanwhile, Liverpool would be hoping for redemption in England as the club’s 2020/21 season was riddled with injuries and failed to defend their title as Manchester City were crowned as the Champions of England. Another positive news for Liverpool is that their star center back Virgil Van Djik has also returned for pre-season friendly after a long injury which he suffered in October against Everton in Premier League.
To strengthen their defence, Liverpool has also signed French defender Ibrahima Konate from the German side RB Leipzig for €35 million.
