Barcelona are considering a late summer move for Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold, according to reports in the Spanish press.

The 20-year-old has become one of the most influential players in Jurgen Klopp’s team over the past few seasons, providing a vital source of creativity going forward.

According to Don Balonthe Catalan giants are keeping an eye on Alexander-Arnold, and could even swoop for the England international before the European transfer window closes on September 2.

The source adds, however, that the transfer would be complicated and unlikely to go through with the Catalan club reportedly forbidden from signing any Liverpool player until 2021, unless agreed to by the Reds themselves, due to a stipulation in the Philippe Coutinho transfer.

Alexander-Arnold claimed his ninth assist in his last 10 games on Saturday, as his corner was met by Joel Matip for the first goal of the 3-1 victory over Arsenal at Anfield.

Meanwhile, a striker who was previously linked with Liverpool has signed a new contract that reportedly includes a €30m release clause.
