Hi Ed002

You mentioned Curtis Jones will likely stay. Do you know if there is interest from other clubs. Aston Villa were spoken about as an option a while ago

He performed really well in periods last season and has certainly upped a level. However, I wonder if that is his ceiling and now with an England call up and his stock high, is it time to cash in?

While he is a local lad and no doubt loves the club, I suspect his contract is far below the likes of Gravenberch. He may feel he needs to move on to get the financial rewards and establish himself as a first on the team sheet starter for regular England inclusion.

Just a hunch but I wonder if he might move this summer.

We have other similar players to CJ. If someone like Ederson (Atalanta) could come in, it would better balance the midfield options, IMO.

Noted, you mention Ederson could be an option.

TIA and grateful for the information you share.

{Ed002's Note - I would expect Curtis Jones to stay now.

Ederson (CM) Having a good season and attracting interest from Spurs, Newcastle, Manchester United, Liverpool and Atletico Madrid. Barcelona have sent scouts. Atalanta want an auction if he is to be sold - starting at €40M. With CL football and Gasperini staying put it makes it less likely he will be sold.}

I would rather we bide our time and wait until Adam Wharton becomes available than sign another midfielder this summer.

Haven't seen enough of Ederson over a longer period but he was an absolute powerhouse in the games vs us and Leverkusen. Can he deliver those performances consistently? I don't know.

Local Liverpool lad, stand out when the England U-21’s last year - man of the match in the semi and the final, if memory serves. The club has stood by him for 2 - 3 years as his body matures (not forgetting the freakish, scary eye injury), never let the club down, breaks into the full England squad just before the Euros ……. Cracking idea to sell him.

As his body matures he's 23 now it's matured. He can hold on to the ball fair enough but letting it go is a different story. Just look at his assists. Sentimental bull doesn't win titles.

@Endo3, nothing to do with sentiment - I have a different view on his capabilities and potential. I assume you missed or didn’t understand what Klopp has been saying for the past 9 years about the squad and the stuff about the ‘right player’.

Unfortunately Jones isn’t a starter in a team looking to win the title. Although he’s got a good first touch and his technique is ok, his decision making is not the best, he holds on to the ball too long and positional sense and awareness isn’t great. If he’s happy to be a squad filler then fine, but in no way is he ever an automatic starter as things stand.

{Ed025's Note - spot on VV..

If you purely want to look at numbers, Wiji had 22 goals and 16 assists in all competitions throughout his time with us. Jones is currently at 16 goals and 14 assists. So his numbers aren't that different when compared to Wiji, especially when you consider that he was much younger and was still developing when he first broke into our team.

Btw, I'm not trying to diss Wiji or anything like that. Just wanted to show that there is more to the game than just numbers.

Curtis Jones. Squad player at best. He doesn’t get in City team, Arsenal team, Madrid, etc.
We need to think bigger, better. We’re back in the Champions League now, stay there.

Wasn’t Jones in the squad when we got back into the Champions League then?

ViktorVaughan and the rest of you wools haven't got a clue what it's like to play for your home town club, What's up with you, new manager need all new shiny foreign players? Stop having a go and get behind the lad .

Curtis needs to be sold. Even at my old age I'd still think I am/ was a better player than him.
I am not trying to be rude but it baffles my mind he's made the career he has.
If he gets to stay I hope he can make vast improvements to his game.
