FC Barcelona and Real Madrid are reportedly interested in Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold, with the defender wanted by the European giants.
Lauded by Goal as a ‘generational’ playmaker, Alexander-Arnold is one of Liverpool’s most important players and was this summer named the club’s vice-captain.
Yet that hasn’t stopped Barcelona or Madrid from taking an interest in Alexander-Arnold, with Chelsea’s Reece James also a target for the Spanish sides.
However, much like the England international, Alexander-Arnold will soon commit his future with Liverpool, leaving Barcelona and Madrid empty-handed in their quests to sign a world-class right-back.

Indeed, Alexander-Arnold rejecting both Barcelona and Madrid will be quite the statement for Liverpool, who will be counting on the defender to get them back to the top of the European game this season.
Barcelona and Real Madrid had no chance at signing Alexander-Arnold
Alexander-Arnold’s important to Liverpool is evident for everyone to see, and the defender leaving Anfield, even for one of football’s biggest clubs, was always going to be a non-starter.
The 24-year-old is on course to become a legend at Liverpool, and Alexander-Arnold rejecting the likes of Barcelona and Madrid will only add to his mythos in the years to come.
With a new contract on the horizon, Alexander-Arnold is set to stay at Liverpool, and the decision could prove to be a brilliant one in the upcoming seasons, where the defender could become club captain.
