Curtis Jones is set for an even bigger role at Liverpool next season, the Athletic reports.
Jones is a youngster who Jurgen Klopp clearly trusts, and he has played 31 times for Liverpool this campaign.
He has been managed well by Klopp, who has rotated him in and out of Liverpool’s line-up.
But it seems that he could be an even more regular fixture on the team sheet next term.
Liverpool are set to lose Georginio Wijnaldum in the summer as things stand, which leaves a gap for a central midfielder to come into the team.
And it is said that Jones is being ‘earmarked’ to be an even more prominent player for the Reds next term now.
That is a real signal of trust from Klopp, who will surely be keen to bring in a new signing in the position this summer.
Jones is still only 20, but he has contributed with four goals and four assists this term.
And if he continues to develop at his current rate, the Liverpool academy graduate could be a permanent feature in the Reds’ team for at least the next decade.
