Liverpool are planning to hold fresh contract talks with Trent Alexander-Arnold, according to report obtained from Football Insider.
Anticipating a successful agreement following initial talks last autumn, the Reds were unable to finalize a deal at that time.
New talks have been slated with the player and his representatives in preparation for the upcoming summer transfer window.
Insiders indicate that the Merseyside club hold a high level of confidence in Alexander-Arnold’s inclination to commit to a new long-term contract at Anfield.
In October, it was reported that Liverpool and Alexander-Arnold were on the verge of reaching an agreement for a new contract exceeding £55 million.
The proposed terms included a weekly salary surpassing £200,000 for the right-back, solidifying his position among the club’s highest earners.
Despite Alexander-Arnold’s existing contract running until 2025, Liverpool, currently leading the league, are keen on securing their star player’s future well in advance.
In light of the announcement of manager Jurgen Klopp’s departure at the end of the season, senior figures at Liverpool are determined to retain key players.
According to information disclosed by Football Insider, Liverpool chiefs express a strong desire to retain Virgil van Dijk beyond the upcoming summer transfer window, especially amid significant imminent changes within the club.
In a parallel development, uncertainties surround the future of Mohamed Salah, as persistent interest from the Saudi Pro League continues to cast doubts on his tenure with the team.
