The 22-year-old, who is a product of the club’s Academy, has committed his future to the Reds after a mixed season that saw him unable to replicate his incredible form of their title-winning 2019/20 campaign.

The new contract will see him stay at Anfield until at least 2025.

Speaking about the extension, the Merseyside native, who has made 179 appearances for the club said;

“I'm honoured to be given the opportunity and to be shown the trust in the club to be given an extension, so it was a no-brainer for me.

“The state the club is in and where I'm at in my career is always a good option for me. To extend and make sure I'm here longer is always a good thing. I'm made up.

“It's the only club I've ever really known, so to be here for this amount of time and extending to be here for a longer amount of time is amazing for me and my family.

“It's a proud moment for me – it always is – signing a new contract here. To be given the trust, like I said before, by the club and the staff is an amazing feeling.”

Alexander-Arnold has scored 10 goals  for Liverpool since making his senior debut in a League Cup tie against Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield in October 2016,

He already has a Premier League, Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup medal to his name.

He was shortlisted for the Ballon d’Or in 2019 and everyone remembers that assist in their Champions League semi-final win over Barcelona in May of that year.

“I live the dream every day really" he said on Friday evening.

"Being able to represent the club and to be in and around names and players, and obviously managers and staff, that are world-class every day is a privilege for me and I'm very fortunate to be in the position I am.”
