Trent Alexander-Arnold is in contention for the 2018 Golden Boy award after being named on a 40-strong shortlist for the prestigious European accolade.

The 19-year-old right-back has not only established himself in Jurgen Klopp’s first team, but has also earned a place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad.

Paris St-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe is favourite to pick up the award when the winner is selected in December.
