Trent Alexander-Arnold enjoyed the perfect boost to his exceptional 2018 calendar year when he was named to the 40-man shortlist of the Golden Boy award.
The 19-year-old full-back is nominated alongside the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Christian Pulisic, Justin Kluivert, and Mersyeside rival Tom Davies for the accolade— prestigious company that will surely have Liverpool fans delighted.
Alexander-Arnold truly established himself in the first team in 2018, playing an integral role in the Reds’ run to the Champions League final, as well as earning an impressive World Cup call-up over the summer.
The inclusion of the Liverpool fullback is ever the more impressive as he is only one of three English players in the shortlist, revealing how difficult it is for young, homegrown talent to break through into Premier League first teams.
Now considered one of the finest talents in all of Europe, Alexander-Arnold has a long career ahead of him at Anfield, and supporters will be relieved he is set to remain at Liverpool for many years to come.
Liverpool fans will be hoping Alexander-Arnold can build on his individual accolades and bring a much-desired Premier League title to Anfield this season.
