Blackburn line up ambitious summer move for goalscoring Liverpool starlet

Date published: Sunday 2nd February 2020 12:42

Liverpool starlet Curtis Jones could be loaned out to Blackburn Rovers in the summer, according to reports.

Jones has burst onto the scene at Anfield with goals against Everton and Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup, but with the likes of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah clearly ahead of him in the pecking order, the winger was linked with a loan exit in January.

Leeds United were said to be among the interested parties, but Jurgen Klopp decided to lock down Jones to keep him around the Liverpool first team setup – with the Reds manager not taking any risks in his title charge.

However, the picture could change in the summer, as according to The Sun, Blackburn are interested in taking him on loan for the 2020-21 season.

Blackburn believe they can offer Jones more regular first team football than the other teams interested in signing the 19-year-old, and having failed to make a single January signing, their squad could use an extra injection of depth come the summer.

 

Jones is not the only Liverpool player being linked with a summer exit, as The Sun also claim that Juventus are hoping to sign Virgil van Dijk when the transfer window re-opens.

Such a move would surely be harder than Blackburn’s attempts for Jones, but it is claimed that the Italian side want to entice the centre-back into seeking a new challenge as he approaches the later years of his career.
