Liverpool Eye Swap Deal for 23-Year-Old Attacker, Involving Trent Alexander-Arnold

With the summer transfer window approaching, Liverpool are reportedly open to a swap deal with Real Madrid involving Trent Alexander-Arnold and Rodrygo.

According to the Spanish outlet Nacional, the Reds are looking to capitalise on the uncertainty surrounding the Brazilian attacker to facilitate the move.

Liverpool are set to be active in the transfer market to strengthen their squad, giving new manager Arne Slot a chance to compete for trophies next season.

The Reds finished third in the Premier League in Jurgen Klopp’s final season and did not succeed in the Europa League.

Although they won the Carabao Cup, Liverpool were ultimately disappointed with their overall performance in the 2023-24 season.

As they prepare for the transfer window, Liverpool are targeting a Real Madrid attacker.

To reduce the transfer fee, the Premier League club are considering including key player Alexander-Arnold in a swap deal.

The La Liga and Champions League winners have already announced the signing of Kylian Mbappe, and Brazilian sensation Endrick is also set to join them at the Santiago Bernabeu alongside the French star.

Los Blancos’ latest moves are likely to limit Rodrygo’s playing time at the club, a situation that Liverpool are keen to exploit.

Catalan media sources report that the Brazilian attacker is valued at 100 million euros (£85 million).

Liverpool believe that including Alexander-Arnold in the deal could lower the cost and prompt Real Madrid to negotiate.

The England full-back is entering the final year of his contract at Anfield. With Klopp’s departure creating uncertainty about his future, Liverpool are ready to sell him.

Liverpool are seeking a long-term replacement for Mohamed Salah, who is also in the final year of his contract. Pursuing Rodrygo appears to be a sensible move.

However, losing Alexander-Arnold, one of the Premier League’s top players and the club’s current vice-captain, should not be on their agenda.

Retaining Alexander-Arnold is Vital for Liverpool’s Success

Slot would aim to retain the nucleus of the Liverpool squad, particularly Alexander-Arnold, who not only plays a pivotal role but is also a lifelong fan of the club.
