The 20-year-old has emerged as one of Liverpool's brightest young stars as Jurgen Klopp's side chase the club's first English title since 1990.

Alexander-Arnold, who joined Liverpool at the age of six, is one of a host of Reds stars who have pledged their futures to the Anfield team.

Andrew Robertson agreed fresh terms earlier this week, following in the footsteps of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Jordan Henderson, Sadio Mane and Joe Gomez, who have all signed new deals since April 2018.

"I'm ecstatic and really proud," Alexander-Arnold told Liverpool's website. "I feel privileged to have the support and the trust the club has in me to offer me a new deal.

"There was no doubt in my mind to sign and extend the years I have with the club.

"Hopefully we can achieve a lot of success in those years."

Alexander-Arnold made his Liverpool debut in October 2016 after graduating from the club's academy and has since established himself as the Reds' first-choice right-back.

He made his England debut against Costa Rica last June and was part of Gareth Southgate's World Cup squad in Russia.

"As soon as they offered the contract, there was no hesitation whatsoever," added Alexander-Arnold, who has made 67 appearances for Liverpool.

"The thing that made it easiest for me was having the people around me to make sure I was able to focus on football as much as possible and get the deal done as soon as possible."
