Just In: Barcelona swoop in shock move to sign Liverpool player as club offers £67million
According to the Spanish outfit, Barcelona has considered moving to sign a Liverpool defender this summer transfer
However, Liverpool fans will have been privy to some rather bizarre and wild transfer stories over the years, yet one may stake a good claim for the crown as Trent Alexander-Arnold has been linked with an exit away from the club.
According to @FutbolTotalCF on Twitter, the Scouser will be the subject of £66.9m bid from Barcelona next summer, as the Spanish outfit supposedly sees the fullback as the final piece of the puzzle in their ongoing project.
Excusing the fact that Barcelona seems to be struggling with debt (regardless of their inexplicable spending in the current window)
Moreover, the reality remains that a fee in the region of £60m probably wouldn’t be enough to get a side the 23-year-old’s right leg.
Would that buy his right foot? I don’t think so. If you were to think of players least likely to leave Anfield then Alexander-Arnold would be right at the top of that list.

I’m sure any potential offer from Barca will be laughed off by the Reds.
Although, Arnold has already disclosed interest to play for Barcelona in the future the transfer new this summer is unexpected
The England international revealed early last two months that Barcelona is one of his favorite clubs he would love to play for
Speaking to Alastair Campbell for British GQ, the Liverpool player said he had a soft spot for Barcelona.
“I’d say my favorite another team would be Barca,” he said.
“I feel as though they’ve got kind of the same values and beliefs as Liverpool, they like to bring players through the academy.
“I grew up watching Messi and that special Barcelona team, with Iniesta, Xavi, Henry, Eto’o.”
