DEVASTATING NEWS: coming live from Fabrizio Romano, official, Trent Alexander-Arnold rejects new Liverpool deal, Alexander-Arnold “flattered” by Real Madrid links. Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has reportedly come to a decision over his future at Anfield as things stand, Liverpool are at risk of losing their academy star for nothing in 2025, meaning that a sale this summer will be a must and will be happening as he has refused the new contract Liverpool has offered. “Trent Alexander-Arnold refuses to sign on the dotted line’.


Liverpool vice-captain Trent Alexander-Arnold has reportedly reached a decision regarding his future at Anfield. With 18 months remaining on his current contract, discussions over an extension have been anticipated due to his significance to the club. However, the possibility of losing the academy graduate for free in 2025 looms, prompting considerations of a potential sale this summer if an agreement is not reached.

In light of this uncertainty, La Liga leaders Real Madrid have reportedly expressed interest in signing Alexander-Arnold as they prepare for the eventual departure of the aging Dani Carvajal from the right-back position. While talks over a new Liverpool contract have been delayed, Alexander-Arnold remains focused on finishing the season strongly before addressing his future.

Reports suggest that discussions between the club and Alexander-Arnold’s representatives will commence at the end of the campaign, with Liverpool keen to retain the defender. The 25-year-old, who has been associated with the club for two decades since joining as a schoolboy in 2004, is said to be “flattered” by Real Madrid’s interest but is prioritizing reaching an agreement with Liverpool.

The involvement of new sporting director Richard Hughes and Michael Edwards, now serving as Liverpool’s CEO of football under Fenway Sports Group, is expected to be crucial in securing Alexander-Arnold’s long-term commitment. While currently earning £180,000 a week, Alexander-Arnold may receive a salary increase to reflect his growing importance, particularly after assuming the role of Virgil van Dijk’s deputy last summer.

Despite still recovering from a severe knee injury, Alexander-Arnold has contributed two goals and 10 assists in 29 appearances this season, bringing his total to 18 goals and 82 assists in 302 matches across all competitions for Liverpool. While an extension at Anfield seems likely, Liverpool are anticipated to undergo defensive restructuring after successfully reshaping their midfield in 2023.

Experienced center-back Joel Matip, nearing the end of his contract and recovering from a season-ending knee injury, may have already played his final game for the club. Although manager Jurgen Klopp hinted at the possibility of a short-term renewal for Matip following his ACL injury, no discussions are currently scheduled.

Meanwhile, Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams, despite their notable contributions in the past, are expected to depart, along with Sepp van den Berg, who has acknowledged the need to explore other options.
