Real Madrid determined to sign £75,000-a-week Liverpool defender

Trent Alexander-Arnold is the subject of interest from Real Madrid. The Los Blancos have the Merseyside giants right-back in their sights, although he did not make an impression in the meeting between the two sides this week.

England international joined the Reds academy as a six-year-old in 2004 and subsequently progressed through the ranks at Anfield before breaking into the first-team setup in 2016. Over the past half-a-decade or so, Trent has grown exponentially to establish himself as one of the best full-backs in the game currently.

His numbers for a couple of campaigns were simply unbelievable, with Alexander-Arnold being among the most creative footballers in the PL. And while he has suffered a fall from grace this term, the 22-year-old defender still has an excellent career tally of 9 goals and 41 assists in 170 games for the Reds.

His exploits in recent years look to have caught the attention of La Liga giants. Real Madrid could enter the transfer market for a right-back in the summer transfer window owing to the uncertain future that Alvaro Odriozola is facing at the club.

If Spain international does end up being offloaded, the Los Blancos will invariably need a top-class replacement, especially with Dani Carvajal struggling with fitness issues lately.

In addition, with Lucas Vazquez, who has excelled as a makeshift right-back this campaign, also being tipped for a summer exit, Real do look to be in a precarious situation as far as the right-back position is concerned. To that end, the Merengues have been linked with Pedro Porro, with the Reds star Alexander-Arnold also on their radar.
