Liverpool are keen on extending the stay of 25-year-old mainstay Trent Alexander-Arnold until June 2028 amid interest in him from Real Madrid.
According to a report by Defensa Central, Liverpool want to reach an agreement with Trent Alexander-Arnold over a new deal until June 2028 as soon as possible. They feel he will be integral to their plans moving ahead and want to secure his services as they are aware of the amount of interest in his services.
The Trent Alexander-Arnold Story
Alexander-Arnold has been at the Merseyside club since his childhood days. He has come up the ranks at some pace. The full-back made it to their first team in the summer of 2016 and has gone from strength to strength since.
He has played an integral role in helping them win the Champions League as well as the Premier League in the Jurgen Klopp era. With Klopp set to part ways with Liverpool in the summer, there have been question marks over the future of quite a few of their star players whose contracts expire in the summer of 2025.
Alexander-Arnold is one of the players whose future has become the talk of the town. With just over a year left on his deal, quite a few clubs are keeping a close eye on him. Real Madrid are one of the clubs interested in the English full-back.
Real Madrid Want Alexander-Arnold
While Dani Carvajal seems to be in the form of his life, he is in the twilight of his career. As a result, Los Blancos have started looking for a new right-back. They are expected to go big for a right-sided full-back in the summer to bolster their squad, and Alexander-Arnold is a key target for them.
The Merseyside club are aware of Real Madrid’s interest in their 25-year-old mainstay. The Reds have no intentions of parting ways with their academy graduate. They want him at the club for years to come and will soon start negotiating a new deal with him.
Liverpool want to offer him a new deal that will run until the summer of 2028. And, they want it done and dusted before the end of the season. If they fail to do so, then they might have to consider selling him in the summer rather than losing out on him for free in a year’s time.
