Trent Alexander-Arnold is reportedly set to be rewarded for his stunning form for Liverpool with a long-term commitment to his services from the club.
The 19-year-old’s surge to stardom has been a standout positive on Merseyside this season, as well as a constant and somewhat demoralising flashback to what the rest of us were doing at his age.
Nathaniel Clyne’s lengthy injury absence has paved the way for the academy graduate to embark on a telling upward trajectory, surpassing a sporadic first team role and proving difficult to now dislodge from the starting right-back position.
Accomplished displays against Leroy Sane and Manchester City across Liverpool’s recent Champions League quarter-final clashes have even begun to hint at a late chance of securing a place in England’s World Cup squad.
Alexander-Arnold is now set to be handed a lucrative new contract at the club, according to the Mirror.
The teenager signed a long-term deal at the club last summer having teased his potential with a string of impressive first-team outings and a dominant campaign with the U23s.
Life in Liverpool’s youth setup already looks to be in the past for a talent showcasing the attacking ambition and execution and defensive progression designed to see him become an England regular in years to come.
Obvious room for defensive improvement continues to be deemed an exciting sign of what is to come from the full-back as he gains more experience.
He is likely to be one of many Reds rewarded with a bumper pay day this summer.
