“We saw immediately, wow”: Jurgen Klopp’s best ‘signing’ wasn’t even a transfer

Jurgen Klopp was asked who the best player he's signed for Liverpool is and although he seemed to dodge the question, he named Trent Alexander-Arnold as the best addition to his squad since taking over as club manager in 2015.

While it would be interesting to know who he considers to be his best Liverpool signing, Alexander-Arnold is one of the best players in the world.

His rise to world renowned status was probably always inevitable given how talented he is but there is no denying the impact Klopp and his tactics have had on the Scouser's incredible career thus far.

By the age of 23, he had already completed club football, winning every trophy possible for Liverpool while playing a pivotal role in each title triumph.

His attacking class makes him the ideal modern right-back and despite playing from defence, he has 18 goals and 81 assists.

Simply generational numbers.

When asked on the Pure Football Podcast who his best signing at Anfield is, Klopp replied: "It's Trent

"We didn't have to buy him but Pep Lijnders my assistant brought him around and said: 'He played No.6 [role] for me. He played full-back, he played right wing, left wing'.

"Then he came and there was only one problem: Trent was not fit enough. But he was a kid so he was not fit enough but we saw immediately, wow, football-wise no doubts.

But [he was] not fit enough so we had to work on that. But then he made steps by himself that were really unbelievable and that was really nice to see. Then he made mistakes and didn't give up."

There is no doubt that Trent Alexander-Arnold is well on his way to becoming the greatest Premier League fullback of all time and if he can win more silverware and even improve more than he has, he could go down as the greatest of all time.
