Since Jurgen Klopp took over as manager of Liverpool back in 2015, the Merseyside club have managed to win their first Premier League title in 30 years and the sixth Champions League trophy in the club’s history.
One player that has been a massive part of the club’s success in recent years is right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold, who is currently earning a weekly wage of £180k-per-week according to Spotrac, the same figure as Roberto Firmino and Fabinho.
Since then, the Englishman, who has been described as a “stunning” player by former Reds striker Michael Owen, has gone on to make a total of 185 appearances for Liverpool across all competitions in which he has managed to score ten goals and provide a mind-boggling 47 assists along the way.
In terms of his market value, it was listed at just £450k according to Transfermarkt in February 2017 after being signed as a boy on a free transfer. Since then, Alexander-Arnold’s rise has been so meteoric that his value now stands at a massive £67.5m.
For the 2019/20 Premier League season that saw Liverpool secure the Premier League title, Alexander-Arnold massively played his part by appearing in all of their 38 games in the campaign and managing to score four goals and provide 13 assists in the process, which is mightily impressive for a full-back.
Back in July, Alexander-Arnold put pen to paper on a new long-term contract at Liverpool, which goes to show just how important he is to the club and how much they want him to stay on for the foreseeable future.
In our view, since making his senior debut for Klopp’s side, Alexander-Arnold has established himself as one of the Premier League’s top players and a firm Liverpool favourite among the fans and everyone associated with the club. He is an elite full-back, someone who has helped to redefine the role of a full-back.
Moving forward, given how the defender is still relatively young, we see no reason why his market value cannot increase even further if he continues to play regularly for the team and keep racking up goals and assists along the way.
