Trent Alexander-Arnold has become one of Liverpool’s highest earners after signing a lucrative new four-year contract.
Negotiations were swiftly concluded this week with the club keen to recognise the 22-year-old right-back’s immense importance to Jurgen Klopp’s side.
The academy graduate, who has been with his boyhood club since the age of six, has made 179 appearances since making his debut nearly five years ago.
He has contributed 10 goals and 44 assists, and been integral to Champions League, Club World Cup and Premier League title triumphs.
On signing the new long term deal, Arnold said “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.
“The state the club is in and where I’m at in my career is always a good option for me. To extend and make sure I’m here longer is always a good thing. I’m made up.
“It’s the only club I’ve ever really known, so to be here for this amount of time and extending to be here for a longer amount of time is amazing for me and my family.
“It’s a proud moment for me – it always is – signing a new contract here. To be given the trust, like I said before, by the club and the staff is an amazing feeling.”
