Football Insider, a soccer media outlet, reported on the 2nd, “Liverpool has agreed in principle with Trent Alexander-Arnold on a new contract worth more than £55 million (about KRW 90.2 billion).”
Arnold is a wingback, but he is a versatile player who can even be a midfielder. He is considered the core of Liverpool’s attack because he is a fairly good kick player and is good at running crosses, early crosses, as well as long passes. It also has strengths in dead balls, so it also plays the role of the team’s set piece kicker. 토토
His real worth began in the 2018/19 season. He showed good performance all the time, helped strikers with his unique kicking power, and was also selected as the Champions League winner and PFA Team of the Year with a total of one goal and 16 assists.
In 277 appearances for Liverpool, he won not only the Champions League, but also the 2020 Premier League, and won the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup. Arnold scored 16 goals and scored a whopping 73 assists in that span.
Arnold finished 22nd in the 2022 Ballon d’Or as Liverpool narrowly missed out on a historic four-time crown, finishing second in the Premier League behind Manchester City. He was too unstable in defense in the first half of last season, but he proved why he was a world-class defensive player with a monster performance as his tactics were revised in the second half.
Under the new deal, Arnold will receive an annual salary and bonuses of more than 200,000 pounds (about 328 million won) per week, and the deal is expected to be signed soon. Liverpool have made significant progress on a new long-term deal for Arnold, whose current contract expires in 2025.
Club leaders are working with the player camp to complete the final element of the contract, and are expected to be signed and announced soon. Arnold’s renewal was a top priority for Jurgen Klopp and sources said Arnold is committed to the club and has no plans to leave.
