The 21-year-old right-back made it known in an interview with Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher, an article which was published by The Telegraph.

Speaking with the former Reds, Alexander-Arnold  said: "Becoming Liverpool captain eventually motives me every day.

"It is something I want to achieve. Obviously that will not be my decision, but if I did not manage that before the end of my career I would be disappointed. I have always thought about that.

"Whether it happens or not, I feel it is my job at Liverpool to lead by example. I always try to do that now – to be an example for the younger lads coming through.

"I feel as though I am part of a team where everyone is influential and helping each other. That is what captains do. They lead and drag the side through tough times, and motivate the players alongside them."

Alexander-Arnold has won four major silverware with Liverpool since breaking into the club's  senior ranks in 2017.

Among the four trophies include two of the most coveted in English football, the Premier League and Champions League.

But the England international is far from satisfied with what he's managed so far pointing out Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as an inspiration to always keep striving for more.

"If you look at Ronaldo and Messi, it is the same. You never see them relaxing. Ronaldo has won five Champions Leagues. If you asked him if he was happy with that, he would say, 'A little bit, but I want another one'. The more you win, the more you want another so you can go down as a legend. It would be harder playing the game and not striving for that.

"As an athlete, it would be weird not to have that competitive nature. You need goals and ambitions. For the last two seasons, that ambition was to win the biggest trophy so far as Liverpool are concerned, which is the Premier League. Coming close last year was tough. Next season will be the same."
