Liverpool star set for ‘bigger deal than Salah and Van Dijk’

 

 

Liverpool moved top of the Premier League table with a 2-1 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday.

The Seagulls took a surprise lead at Anfield courtesy of Danny Welbeck’s early goal, before Luis Diaz drew the Reds level.

 

Talisman Mohamed Salah then put Jurgen Klopp’s side in front after the break, and they held on to secure a crucial three points.

 

The result moved Liverpool top of the standings, above Arsenal who drew 0-0 with third-placed Manchester City later on Sunday afternoon.

 

Manager Klopp will be desperate to see his side lift the league title during his final season in charge of the club, with the German set to depart Merseyside this summer.

 

It appears, though, that those in charge of the club are working off the pitch to secure a key player’s future.

 

As per Football Insider, full-back Trent Alexander Arnold is in line for a huge new deal with the club.

The report claims that the right-back is set to be rewarded with a new contract that will be bigger than both Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk’s respective current deals.

 

Alexander-Arnold, 25, has made more than 300 appearances for his boyhood club across all competitions, having graduated from Liverpool’s youth academy.

 

He has scored 18 goals in that time, as well as providing 82 assists.

 

The defender’s current contract is set to expire at the end of next season, but the report claims that talks over an extension are scheduled for this summer, with Alexander-Arnold himself very keen to commit his long-term future to the club.

 

The England international is said to currently earn around £180,000-per-week, but he is likely to earn a significant pay rise when he puts pen to paper on a new deal.
