According to the Times' Paul Joyce, this is set to extend his current terms to 2022, and is likely to include substantial pay rise, given his increasing importance at Anfield. However, keeping talented young players around is part of Jürgen Klopp's plans for reviving Liverpool FC. "He wants to learn, he wants to grow, he wants to develop and his focus is absolutely in the right place".
Alexander-Arnold instead returned to pre-season training this week with Liverpool as he wants to impress Klopp and ensure he is in the best position to push for first-team opportunities. "I have said before and believe in it completely - this club has the ideal culture and environment for helping young, talented players".
The manager reiterated that he believes Liverpool have "the flawless culture for helping young, talented players" but admitted that "ultimately" it is down to the players themselves, adding: "Trent has had a benchmark attitude so far".
Trent Alexander Arnold reveals what Steven Gerrard and Jurgen Klopp advised him Posted by Cameron Hogwood
"It's exciting, a proud moment for me and my family", he said. "They play such an important part in guiding the players to the stage where their opportunity with the first-team set-up comes".
"I know moments like this mean a lot to them [the Academy staff]", he added.
While Klopp has long enthused about Alexander-Arnold's ability and potential, he has also pleaded for patience as the local-born starlet looks to break into the starting eleven on a more consistent basis. So Trent is another Scouser and apparently, just as I tried to be John Barnes and Steve McMahon, he grew up pretending to be me while playing in the Merseyside parks.
"There were bumps in the road last season - but how he responded was outstanding. He is a great talent".
