Trent Alexander-Arnold told Gary Lineker he wants to become a legend with Liverpool and England.

The young Scouser has been a revelation for Liverpool since his breakthrough into the first team in 2016.

“The dream is to win everything possible for club and country, to be a legend for Liverpool and England and hopefully one day be captain for them both,” he told Lineker.

 

“I’ve always been competitive and I’ve always had that drive and hunger to win and succeed. I don’t think that will ever leave me.”

Liverpool have saved themselves tens of millions of pounds by having the fullback come up through the Academy. Top quality attacking fullbacks aren’t exactly a dime a dozen and the 20-year-old could mature into one of the best in Europe.

Being young, Trent can still be quite inconsistent and is guilty sometimes of making the wrong decision but that will correct itself over time. He is also blessed in the fact that he is able to train everyday with another massively talented fullback in Andy Robertson.

Given the way Jurgen Klopp has designed his system in the absence of a top class creative midfielder, the fullbacks are responsible for providing incisive passes from wide positions. A prime example of this was the game against Watford, where between the two of them, Robbo and Trent assisted all five goals.
