Trent Alexander-Arnold has penned an extension at Anfield which will keep him tied down, at the back of Jurgen Klopp’s centre three for the next five years.
Reports rolling out of the ESPN say the England international inked his signature on a five-year deal that will run out in 2024.
Alexander-Arnold is a fan favourite, and hugely admired by Jurgen Klopp who is currently chasing the Premier League trophy.
“As soon as they offered the contract, there was no hesitation whatsoever,” Alexander-Arnold told Liverpool’s official website.
“The thing that made it easiest for me was having the people around me to make sure I was able to focus on football as much as possible and get the deal done as soon as possible. That is down to my brother especially, my manager, who took that role and allowed me to focus on football and not get distracted, which is the main thing.
“The last 18 months especially have been very special. Hopefully the next 18 months and even further on than that will be even more special.”
The German tactician has underlined the importance of staying ahead of the rest of the pack in the Premier League, and that boils down to not losing his players to foreign club.
Though Alexander-Arnold has been out of play since taking a bad hit to his knee. But the 20-year-old is expected to bounceback quickly after his knock was explained would not required him going under the knife.
With Alexander-Arnold staying put, Klopp has expressed his delight over his choice and the German is hopeful he can squeeze out a little bit extra out of the relentless player he described him to be, this campaign.
The fullback joins the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Joe Gomez, Andrew Robertson and captain Jordan Henderson who have committed long-term to Liverpool.
