Reports: Trent Alexander-Arnold Signs Four Year Under Armour Deal Worth £6.4m In Total

According to the London Evening Standard, the 20-year-old is set to sign a four year deal that will see him earn UK£1.6 million per year - £6.4m over four years.

If the figures are accurate (other sources suggest that "they are little wide of the mark"), the defender’s new is deal worth more than those of any other Liverpool player, including Mo Salah and Virgil van Dijk. Alexander-Arnold’s contract with the US sportswear brand also ranks second in the England squad in terms of boot sponsorship value, with Harry Kane’s deal with Nike is said to be the only bigger.

Liverpool Echo is reporting that Alexander-Arnold will use parts of his lucrative new deal to purchase land and build community soccer facilities across Liverpool.
