Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold has been named the PFA Young Player of the Year.
The young Scouser scooped the award following his stellar season with the Reds. Not only did he contribute to the club’s first Premier League title, but he tallied 13 assists for the season, behind only Kevin de Bruyne, who topped this particular metric with 20 (via Premier League).
Will Trent Alexander-Arnold become captain of Liverpool?
Alexander-Arnold is just the fifth Liverpool player to win the award as he follows in the footsteps of Ian Rush, Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen and Steven Gerrard (as per liverpoolfc.com). James Pearce has reported on the 21-year-old’s achievement and duly branded him ‘the best right-back in the world’.
Loads of Liverpool fans are firmly in agreement with Pearce’s statement and have flocked to his tweet to praise the young defender. One supporter has commented by saying that The Athletic reporter is talking ‘just facts’.
All eyes will be on Alexander-Arnold next season as he continues his rise to stardom. Since 2017, he has skyrocketed in market value, spiking from just £1.3m then to a mammoth £99m currently (via Transfermarkt).
