ESPN: Alexander-Arnold makes world's top 10 best players under 21
The reputable sports outlet has ranked talented young players from all over the world and the Reds right-back has made the cut. Who is alongside him?
Trent Alexander-Arnold has been ranked fourth. His transfer value is believed to be around €69m.
"The Liverpool right-back, born and raised in the city, has progressed through the club's youth system since he was spotted by local talent scouts at 6 years old," writes ESPN's Mark Ogden. "As a schoolboy, Alexander-Arnold's talent was singled out by Steven Gerrard, who in his autobiography described the youngster as a star of the future.
"Blessed with pace, strength and an athletic physique, Alexander-Arnold has become a key figure in Jurgen Klopp's team. His development the past two years has seen him become a regular in Gareth Southgate's England squad.
"What's next? Liverpool have moved quickly to secure Alexander-Arnold to a long-term contract, with the player signing a new deal earlier this year that runs until June 2024. With Liverpool once again a force in English and European football and Alexander-Arnold a self-confessed supporter, having grown up within a short distance of Anfield, it's difficult to envisage him playing anywhere else."
