Alexander-Arnold says reported Liverpool target Jadon Sancho is his 'best friend' with England

Liverpool ace Trent Alexander-Arnold has revealed that his ‘best mate’ with the England national team is Borussia Dortmund sensation Jadon Sancho.

Alexander-Arnold, 21, is one of the Liverpool academy’s greatest success stories of the modern era, and he teamed up with teammate and full-back counterpart Andy Robertson for the highly-anticipated second episode of ‘Wingmen’, which he posted on his Instagram page.

Their double-act social media show features the pair driving around the city of Liverpool asking questions that have been sent in popular demand by supporters.

One of the questions Alexander-Arnold was asked by Robertson was who his closest friend outside of Liverpool when on international duty with England.

In response, Alexander-Arnold said: “Sanch… The Sancho Jadon.”

Robertson was also thrown the same question in regards to the Scottish national team whom the Liverpool left-back is the captain.

He said: “It was Snods [Robert Snodgrass]. He was like a big brother to me, but he’s obviously retired now.

“I’d probably go now John McGinn, Stewart Armstrong. John McGinn yes, you’re right. Scottish Zidane.”

What RTK has to say

Alexander-Arnold’s comments are certainly interesting and will likely have supporters excited when you consider the reports surrounding both Liverpool and Sancho.

The Independent recently reported that Manchester United’s failed attempts to lure the England international to Old Trafford have allowed Liverpool the opportunity to swoop next summer.

Dortmund wanted a fee of £108 million for Sancho – which United deemed too excessive and refused to meet Dortmund’s asking price.

Last season the 20-year-old wonderkid clocked up 44 appearences for the Bundesliga giants, scoring a staggering 20 goals while incredibly registering the same number of assists.

Liverpool’s pedigreed front three isn’t getting any younger, and the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firminio will all be 29 come the end of the season.

Summer signing Diogo Jota has already showcased that Liverpool are beginning to integrate younger and more long-term options into Jurgen Klopp’s attacking system.

A player of Sancho’s quality will certainly be welcomed next summer, and hopefully, Trent can mutter a word or two to his England teammate as to why Anfield is the perfect destination to take his footballing talents to the next level.
