Report: Aston Villa want 'exceptional' Premier League player, could open with £15m bid

Aston Villa are lining up a bid for Liverpool star Curtis Jones, according to reports on Sunday morning. The young midfielder is seemingly down the pecking order at Anfield and Dean Smith wants a discussion over his availability.

Jones wasn’t in the 20-man squad as Liverpool drew 1-1 with Chelsea yesterday. Although he’s had some good moments in a red shirt, it’s fair to say he’s not yet held down a regular place in the team.

Villa are likely to open with a bid of £15 million. They hope that might tempt Liverpool into a sale, with Jurgen Klopp not seemingly convinced of his talents just yet. The manager has, however, called him exceptional in the past.

Smith has spent well during the summer transfer window. His team finished 11th last season and he’ll hope to force the Villans into the top-half during 2021/22.

Jones has played 47 times for Liverpool and does have some top-flight experience to his name. Although still relatively raw, he does look set for a bright future in the game.

The 20-year-old is an England under-21 international but hasn’t yet kicked a ball for the Reds so far during the current campaign. That might be a worry for the youngster and Villa want to pounce.

Jones could be a game-changing signing for Aston Villa

The youngster is an exceptional talent and he could be a really strong addition to the Aston Villa ranks. It certainly seems as though Villa supporters would welcome this sort of signing.

Jones has produced some moments of pure genius in a Liverpool shirt, although Klopp hasn’t called upon him yet this season. Harvey Elliott seems to have surpassed him in the pecking order and that isn’t ideal.

A move at this stage of his career could allow him to put down some roots for the future and Villa seem like a good club for Jones.
