Trent Alexander-Arnold close to signing new Liverpool contract

Trent Alexander-Arnold close to signing new Liverpool contract

He was expected to have a small impact last season after winning Liverpool's Young Player of the Year award the previous season, only for injuries to Nathaniel Clyne and Joe Gomez to thrust him into position as first-choice right-back. Liverpool has just offered a new deal to their captain Jordan Henderson and it looks like Gomez is set to become another player to commit his future to the red half of Merseyside.

That meant the 21-year-old missed out on his dream of playing at the World Cup - a tournament in which he could have played a prominent role.

Walker was a key member of Gareth Southgate's England World Cup squad during the summer and although he plays as a right-back for Pep Guardiola, Walker has been used on the right-side of a back three for the Three Lions. I can only thank them so much for the things they have done.

Having not been considered at centre-back by Jurgen Klopp last season, Gomez was nearly thrust into his preferred role out of necessity more than anything.

"The way they did it was to target me in training and to try and get into my head with the way they speak and putting players against me who would get the best of me".

It is an opportunity that Gomez has seized emphatically in the last month, with glowing reviews coming his way.

Blisteringly fast, silky on the ball and benefiting from having the colossal Van Dijk alongside him, Gomez looks like he has been a regular for years.

Gomez has played in all four Premier League matches for Liverpool so far this season, and so has Alexander-Arnold.

In the 2-1 win over Leicester City he was particularly impressive, outshining his more experienced partner and standing head and shoulders above most of his teammates at the King Power Stadium.

"Looking back now, it was the ideal way of going about it".

'Ramos has probably been the best centre back in the world for some time.

The talent of Gomez has always been well known but injuries have blighted a promising start to his career at Anfield which eventually lead to missing out on the World Cup.

It doesn't' look speculative and will come out as no surprise as Gomez's current showings make him a deserving man to get a new contract.
