Gerrard’s ‘one-club man’ challenge… contract talks begin
September 19, 2023 | by bookmeforphotographers.com
Liverpool are in talks to sign former Sacred Heart youth product Trent Alexander-Arnold (24). Alexander-Arnold is aiming to become a “one-club man,” something the club’s legendary midfielder Steven Gerrard (43-retired) never achieved.
British media outlet TalkSPORT reported on July 18 (KST) that “Liverpool have opened contract talks with Alexander-Arnold. He signed a new contract in July 2021 and his contract expires in 2025.”
Alexander-Arnold, who came through Liverpool’s youth system, has been a stalwart at right fullback since his promotion to the first team in 2016. His powerful and precise right-footed kick is regarded as one of the best in the world, and he has scored 16 goals and provided 73 assists in 277 appearances for Liverpool since his debut. Despite being a fullback, he is a prolific goal producer, racking up more than 10 assists every season. 온라인카지노
He was once linked with Real Madrid, but turned them down in favor of Liverpool. Since last season, he has become more of a central midfielder, using his strengths as a right fullback. At Liverpool, he has won one UEFA Champions League title, one Premier League title, and one FA Cup.
It was time for him to sign a new contract. In two years, Alexander-Arnold will be out of contract at Liverpool. The Reds made plans to keep him at the club for a long time before European giants began to show interest. Not long after the transfer window closed, the Reds immediately launched an operation to keep him.
Meanwhile, the player is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury. Jürgen Klopp (56-Germany) said in his pre-match press conference against Wolverhampton on Friday: “Alexander-Arnold has already started running and I hope he will touch the ball next week. We’ll see what happens then,” Klopp said of the current situation.
