Tottenham among clubs interested in the services of Liverpool midfielder Curtis Jones
A number of clubs show interest in securing the services of 23-year-old central midfielder Curtis Jones of Liverpool. Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal see themselves in a potential race to sign the Reds’ Academy graduate.
One of Liverpool’s most improved players over the last two seasons, Jones has been on an upward spiral since the beginning of 2023 and continues to put in performances that are subtle, yet impactful enough without a goal or an assist. Speaking of numbers, he still has five goals and three assists to his name in 25 appearances across all competitions.
Having fought for a place for himself through the midfield rebuild at Liverpool, he is potentially among the first names on that teamsheet when it comes to the midfield. Jones has attracted the attention of a host of southern English clubs this transfer window, Sami Mokbel of the Daily Mail reveals.

CJ to the Lilywhites?
Jones is a player who can play on either side of the midfield three and a fitting comparison for a player like that is Gini Wijnaldum. These kinds of players do not always pop up when it comes to conversations about goals and assists but ultimately, these are the kinds of “pressing machines” that managers like Jurgen Klopp or any other manager who plays a very high press style of play, including Ange Postecoglou would appreciate a lot.
However, the prospect of Jones making a move appears slim. He has not only become a crucial component of Liverpool’s midfield but has demonstrated remarkable consistency and improvement. Any consideration of selling him would likely be met with significant reluctance from the Liverpool fanbase, as he has evolved into a key figure within the squad.
Even if the Reds were in a position where they could do with shipping Jones away, his long-term contract extending until 2027 (Transfermarkt) would not make things any easier in terms of negotiations.
Even though he has been at Liverpool since the age of nine, Jurgen Klopp’s exit from Liverpool might force him to different avenues.
As the transfer saga unfolds, only time will tell whether Tottenham, Chelsea, or Arsenal can sway Liverpool’s stance on Jones. The young midfielder’s trajectory suggests that he may have a pivotal role to play in Liverpool’s future, making the prospect of a move more speculative than probable.
