In a recent report, Fichajes claimed that Real Madrid are ready to move in for Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold. It has been stated that Los Blancos are hoping to sign the English talent from the Reds next year.
Alexander-Arnold’s Good Run Of Form In The Premier League
Alexander-Arnold is having another impressive campaign at Anfield as he has managed to put in a run of influential displays on the right side of Jurgen Klopp’s defence. The England international has picked up three assists in 14 matches for Liverpool this season on all fronts.
The 25-year-old has been a positive influence in both halves based on his average of 1.2 tackles, 0.9 interceptions, 1.6 clearances, 1.4 shots, 1.9 key passes and 0.9 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Premier League. He has even been accurate when distributing possession from the right flank as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 81% in league football (stats via whoscored).
His current contract at the Merseyside club will expire in the summer of 2025. Thus, Los Blancos could potentially land him on a cut-price deal next summer if they can convince Liverpool to part ways with their prized asset.
Is Alexander-Arnold A Good Option For Liverpool?
Alexander-Arnold is a good tackler of the ball and can read the danger well to earn the ball back for his team inside his half. He usually puts his foot through the ball when the opposition are on the front foot but is prone to making defensive errors at the back.
The English sensation has got the vision to create a few decent chances for his teammates in the final third. He can even strike the ball with power from long-range and is a good dribbler with the ball as well.
Alexander-Arnold would no doubt enhance the quality of Real Madrid‘s first team. He might even help Los Blancos challenge for a lot of major honours over the next few years. At 25, he is about to enter his prime which makes him a great option for the Madrid giants to pursue at the end of this campaign.
However, it won’t be easy for Real Madrid to get a deal done for Alexander-Arnold as he is a homegrown talent and might be reluctant to leave his boyhood club next summer.
