Arsenal have singled out Liverpool midfielder, Curtis Jones as their number one transfer target ahead of next summer. The 22-year-old has only started six Premier League games under Jurgen Klopp this season with the player now looking for more consistent minutes.

Mikel Arteta is said to a huge fan of the Liverpool midfielder with the Arsenal boss singling out Curtis Jones as the perfect option for the left centre midfield position which is currently held by Kai Havertz.

According to reliable reports on Twitter, Arsenal have already made contact with Liverpool to declare their interest in signing the player next summer. Mikel Arteta really wants to sign Curtis Jones and he is the one pushing for the deal to happen.

Curtis Jones has only scored one goal and recorded one assist in the Premier League for Liverpool so far this season, however there’s no denying the players’ ability. Jones is a top talent and at only 22-years-old he’s got a lot of room to improve and Mikel Arteta believes he’s the man to get the best out of him.

Jones being a homegrown player means he won’t come cheap but with Emile Smith Rowe, Eddie Nketiah and Reiss Nelson’s futures in doubt, the club will need to look at bringing in more homegrown talent if the current crop from Hale End do end up leaving the club in the near future.

Curtis Jones yesterday produced an outstanding display for Liverpool as they beat Newcastle United 4-2 at Anfield. The midfielder got on the score sheet with Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp full of praise for the 22-year-old after the game: “Special game. Special game from Curtis, to be honest: his high press, his counter-press.

“We all know how good a player Curtis is, he is technically incredibly skilled, but he finds more and more direction in his dribbling, he gets better out of situations and his pressing and counter-pressing is meanwhile… he sets the level actually, how it should look. Really happy with that. He keeps every player in the game.”
