Liverpool ready to offer Trent Alexander-Arnold major increase on £180,000/week deal
Liverpool are set to offer Trent Alexander-Arnold a bigger contract extension than Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk will receive with all three set for renewal talks.
A report in mid-November from 90 Min suggested that Liverpool will offer the fullback around £250,000 per week or a total of £1 million every month.
Recent reports from Football Insider (10 February) highlighted Liverpool's ambition to secure long-term commitments from key players including Alexander-Arnold, Mohamed Salah, and Virgil van Dijk, with the club "hopeful" about reaching agreements with each.
Insiders close to the situation have revealed that Alexander-Arnold, the dynamic full-back, is in line to receive the most substantial and longest-term contract offer among the trio.
Despite his current contract running until 2025, there is no indication that Alexander-Arnold is looking to leave the club where he has developed since his youth.
At just 25 years old, Liverpool's management views the vice-captain as a cornerstone for the team's future and is eager to ensure his prolonged allegiance to the club. There's a strong belief that he will accept a new deal that significantly surpasses his current £180,000 weekly salary.
Since his debut in October 2016, Alexander-Arnold has been instrumental in Liverpool's achievements, accumulating 321 appearances across all competitions, netting 22 goals, and delivering 86 assists.
He has the most assists by a defender in Premier League history after overtaking none other than Andy Robertson with his assist for Jota on Saturday taking his tally to 58.
His performance in the current season has been notably impactful, with 2 goals and nine 10 to his name, including a vital late goal against Manchester City in November that underscored his importance to the squad.
Despite a recent 3-1 defeat to Arsenal, Liverpool continue to lead the Premier League standings, though Manchester City are poised to challenge for the top position with their game in hand against Brentford later this month.
The move to secure Alexander-Arnold on a long-term, high-value contract underscores Liverpool's strategy to build around young, talented players who embody the club's ethos and ambition, ensuring the team remains competitive at the highest levels for years to come.
