Trent Alexander-Arnold triggered a pay rise in his Liverpool contract after making his 30th first-team appearance in February, a source has confirmed to ESPN FC.

Alexander-Arnold signed a five-year deal with Liverpool in July that included a number of triggers for pay increases when milestone appearances were reached. A source said that was common policy for the club when it comes to young players.

His 30th outing for his boyhood club came on Feb. 11 when Liverpool beat Southampton 2-0 at St Mary's Stadium. It subsequently led to a pay increase reported to be around 40,000 a week.

The 19-year-old is enjoying his first season as a regular in Jurgen Klopp's side after having made 27 appearances at right-back so far.

Alexander-Arnold, who is capped at under-21s level, trained with Gareth Southgate's England side last month, with the youngster hopeful that his performances this season can lead to a place in this summer's World Cup squad.

Liverpool teammate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has backed Alexander-Arnold to reach the very top of the game after impressing in both legs of the Champions League semifinal win against Manchester City.
