BARCELONA are plotting a move for Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold, according to reports.
The right-back, 23, is under contract at Liverpool until 2025. But that has not deterred Barcelona’s interest with the Spanish giants planning a transfer for the defender next summer, report Futbol Total.
Barcelona are reportedly set to bid £67million for the England star who has a market value of £94m according to Statista.
Many fans believe that is a laughable figure with some arguing Liverpool would not sell at any price.
One football fan wrote on Twitter: “Never gonna happen in a million years.”
Another added: “67M for Trent? I’m sure Liverpool would stop picking [up] their call and block the number, Brokelona stop selling part of your club.”
And a third sarcastically said: “Yeah because that’s going to go well for them ain’t it, definitely see Liverpool accepting this one!”
Another tweeted: “Why would he downgrade from his childhood club?”
Barcelona have big plans despite their precarious financial situation which has left them unable to register new signings.
The Blaugrana snapped up Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen this summer but both are still awaiting registration.
Barcelona also splashed the cash to sign Robert Lewandowski, Jules Kounde and Raphinha but need to sell before they can be registered.
The club accepted a £72m bid for Frenkie de Jong from Manchester United but the midfielder is stalling over a move amid interest from Chelsea.
The Blues also want to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with the striker’s Nou Camp future in doubt.
