Liverpool will face a huge battle to keep Trent Alexander-Arnold at Liverpool next summer with the world’s biggest clubs prepared to spend whatever it takes to sign the right-back.
That’s according to Brazil legend Cafu, who believes the 21-year-old full-back will be the subject of enormous bids from the world’s elite clubs, who would all be willing to pay top whack for the player.
The World Cup winning full-back, who also won Serie A titles with AC Milan and Roma, reckons Alexander-Arnold has emerged as one of Liverpool’s best players thanks to his incredible energy and wand of a right foot – making him an attractive proposition for the game’s biggest spenders.
Alexander-Arnold has been tipped to one day move into a midfield role for Liverpool, but it seems Cafu thinks he’s doing just fine where he is.
“Trent has been one of the better players in the league and he is one of the main reasons why Liverpool are where they are,” Cafu told The Sun.
“At the end of the season we could see a big trade with him, as he is not only a great defender but he can also help and move forward and sideways with and without the ball.
“For that reason Alexander-Arnold has been great in scoring goals and is what I would call a ‘quarterback scorer’.
“To any young player, the key word is always commitment.
“Young players need to have a strong commitment to the position they take on.
“This is my No 1 piece of advice. It’s what I teach to others.”
