With Trent Alexander-Arnold only having 18 months left on his current contract, Liverpool have begun making contingency plans, according to Italian news agency Calciomercato.
Therefore, The Kop is watching defender Denzel Dumfries on the Inter Milan payroll amid uncertainty over Alexander-Arnold’s long-term future at Anfield. The 27-year-old brings versatility and attacking ability from his full-back role.
Two goals and three assists in 10 matches this season also show Dumfries’ effectiveness. With Chelsea and Manchester United eyeing the Dutch defender, Liverpool may need to act on a deal with Inter if offered.
Inter will probably ask for around 40 million pounds for the player they once signed to fill Achraf Hakimi’s position. For Liverpool, it’s a reasonable expense for a replacement if Alexander-Arnold really leaves.
The club will be keen to avoid such a scenario, thereby making extension negotiations with the England star an urgent priority. The 25-year-old defender has established his position at Liverpool with more than 270 appearances.
