Trent Alexander-Arnold celebrates winning the 2019 Champions League with Liverpool

Trent Alexander-Arnold might not be a new signing for Liverpool, but by committing himself to the club until 2025, securing the long-term future of the England right-back might just be one of the most important pieces of business that the Reds conduct this summer.

Jurgen Klopp’s men, of course, have already captured the signature of Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig, but the buzz for now is over Alexander-Arnold, who has been at the club since he was six.

Now 22, Alexander-Arnold, whose future has never been in doubt, remains young in footballing terms but his achievements are already impressive. Indeed, in just five years as a professional, he has achieved what many would see as a whole career’s work.

In terms of trophies, he has captured all the major club honours, playing a key role with Liverpool as they won the 2018/19 Champions League, the 2019/20 Premier League, the 2019 European Super Cup and the 2019 Club World Cup.

His competitions with left-back Andy Robertson to see who can secure the more assists each season are now legendary and have spurred the duo onto some incredible numbers, aided by the attack-minded system of Jurgen Klopp, which encourages his full-backs to bomb forward at every opportunity.

Even so, Alexander-Arnold’s numbers remain incredible.

His breakout season came in 2018/19, when he claimed 12 Premier League assists as well as one goal in just 29 matches. This was a new record for a defender.

A year on, he broke his own mark as Liverpool won the title. Alexander-Arnold mustered an incredible 13 assists and even more impressively managed to chip in with four goals.

And there was not just offensive substance to Alexander-Arnold’s play in those campaigns – Liverpool finish both campaigns with the Premier League’s best defensive record.

Of course, the 2020/21 campaign proved to be harder for him. Nevertheless, seven assists was a tally that most defenders would be delighted with in a regular campaign, particularly as he also scored two goals.

Encouragingly for Liverpool, Alexander-Arnold was undoubtedly getting back to his best towards the end of the season – he created four goals and scored one in the final nine games – and while injury denied him a chance to play Euro 2020, he will surely return for the new campaign with fresh determination as Klopp’s men seek to recapture their crown.
