Liverpool remain in contract renewal talks with Trent Alexander-Arnold

Liverpool are reportedly hoping to agree on a new deal with defender Trent Alexander-Arnold amid his links with Real Madrid.

According to a report from Football Insider, Liverpool are currently locked in talks with 25-year-old homegrown defender Trent Alexander-Arnold regarding a new contract. But the two parties have not reached a breakthrough yet.

It will be interesting to see if they can convince the Englishman to sign an extension with the club. Alexander-Arnold is one of the best players at the club, and Liverpool must prioritise a contract renewal for him. They will need to hold onto their best players if they want to win major trophies.

Alexander-Arnold is one of the leaders in the dressing room as well. The boyhood Liverpool fan has no reason to leave the club any time soon, and it is fair to assume that the two parties might reach an agreement soon.

Real Madrid keen on Trent Alexander Arnold

The 25-year-old has been linked with a move to Real Madrid in recent months, and it will be interesting to see if the Spanish giants decide to test Liverpool’s resolve with an offer in the coming weeks. Real Madrid certainly need a quality right-back, especially with Dani Carvajal in his twilight years. The Spanish outfit will have to replace him adequately, and Alexander-Arnold could be a quality signing for the long-term.

The 25-year-old is a reasonably good defender, but he is exceptional on the ball, and his playmaking abilities will add a new dimension to the side. At Liverpool, his role extends beyond defensive contributions, and the Reds simply cannot afford to lose a player of his calibre. They must do everything in their power to convince him to sign a new deal.

The 25-year-old defender will probably wait for Liverpool to show their ambition in the transfer market, and he will also look to understand his role under the new manager before making a decision. Liverpool have chosen to replace Jurgen Klopp with Arne Slot, and the Dutchman will have to convince his key players to stay at the club.
