Trent Alexander-Arnold has been handed a highly lucrative new deal by Liverpool to keep him at Anfield for years to come, which will see his wages double according to the Mirror.

Appearance-related clauses were linked to pay rises and it is understood that the latest one was reached when he played his 30th senior game in the 2-0 victory over Southampton in February.

And this latest development in Alexander-Arnold's proves that Liverpool were already aware that he was likely to make the step up under Klopp this season.

He joined Liverpool at the age of six and has always been considered a potential star on Merseyside.

Alexander-Arnold joined Liverpool at the age of six and has always been considered a potential star, and there were a series of incentives built into the five-year deal that he signed last July.

Alexander-Arnold has made such stellar progress this campaign that he even is considered to be an outside chance to go to the World Cup.

The teenager burst on to the scene last season, making 12 appearances in all competitions, and he has gone from strength to strength this term having played almost 30 games so far.

Although he did not have his best match against Manchester United, the youngster was excellent over the two legs against Manchester City.

He was targeted as a potential weak-link by the newly crowned Premier League champions but nullified Leroy Sane immaculately.

"I said a few weeks ago that the Champions League fixture against Manchester City would be a massive test for full-backs Andrew Robertson and Alexander-Arnold", Crooks told BBC Sport.
