The versatile England international is living the dream as a Merseyside native and hopes to be given the chance to spend his entire career at Anfield

Trent Alexander-Arnold wants to remain at Liverpool “for the rest of my career”, with there no transfer plans in his future thinking.

The 20-year-old is a Merseyside native and is living the dream after breaking through at his hometown club.

His versatility has made him an important part of Jurgen Klopp’s plans, while four senior international caps have been earned with England.

There is also plenty of potential still to be unlocked in Alexander-Arnold, and he intends to further his development at Anfield and avoid the need to head elsewhere in search of minutes.

“There is nowhere else I’d rather be than Liverpool,” the highly-rated defender told The Times.

“Somewhere I want to stay for the rest of my career is Liverpool. It’s what I’ve always dreamed of. Liverpool are special.

“It’s completely down to the fans. Whether we are winning or losing we always have their love.

“I remember Istanbul [the 2005 Champions League final]. Only Liverpool could fight back from 3-0 down.

“The players said they could hear You’ll Never Walk Alone at half-time.

“Not many teams’ fans would still be there, singing their hearts out at 3-0 down, after making a long trip to Turkey.

“A lot of teams’ fans might have left early, tried to get an early flight home, but not Liverpool fans, we stay to the end.”

Alexander-Arnold, who formed part of England’s squad at the 2018 World Cup, has passed the 50-appearance mark for Liverpool this season.

He has helped them to make an unbeaten start to their Premier League campaign, with major silverware now being chased down by a side seeking a first trophy since 2012.
