Curtis Jones has attracted the attention of a host of southern English clubs this transfer window, Sami Mokbel can reveal.

Earlier this year, Reds fans were left shocked after learning that Curtis Jones is a big fan of the Gunners.

According to The Athletic, Curtis Jones grew up on 'a housing estate closest to Liverpool’s city centre that runs beside Jamaica Street and out towards the urban sprawl of Toxteth.

But, reportedly, he once was willing to tell anyone who would listen that he was an Arsenal fan despite being at Liverpool's academy.

Now, speaking on the It's All Kicking Off Transfer podcast, Mail Sport's Mokbel can reveal there was concrete interest in him.

He said: 'Curtis Jones heading into the summer. Again, another really very good player, but his performances are catching the attention of a number of clubs I'm told. 

'He's at Liverpool, you know, and he's at his hometown club. I don't know his contractual situation off the top of my head, but he's attracting interest from a number of clubs and from English clubs, some clubs in the South. 

'But again, you know, he is a player who will probably be central to Liverpool's future when Jürgen Klopp goes. 

'But I think if there's any sense that he is available or obtainable, I think there'll be some clubs who would and take advantage of that situation.'

Responding to him, Ian Ladyman added: 'That's really interesting, [there being] lots of interest from big London clubs. You can probably work out who they are. 

'If I was Liverpool, regardless of what's happening with Jurgen Klopp, I would wrap that boy up in cotton wool.

'I would throw money at his feet, buy him a house, give him a new car, send him on a holiday, do whatever he wants, keep him at Anfield, he's a top player.'

Mokbel also revealed earlier this week that there are two high-profile Premier league managers staring down the barrel of a tough conversation this summer after under-whelming seasons.

The first of those two bosses is Mauricio Pochettino at Chelsea, who may have only joined last summer, but speculation is already swirling around his future.

Mail Sport's Football Editor Ian Ladyman suggested that his side 'look like they're drifting' this season, sat in 10th place after a 4-1 defeat to Liverpool on Wednesday.

The second is Erik ten Hag, who has endured a rough season in 2023-24.

Manchester United have recently seen Sir Jim Ratcliffe purchase a 25 per cent stake in the club, and Mokbel pointed out that most chiefs tend to appoint their own people on taking over.

Ratcliffe has already spoken to Ten Hag at Man United, with the club going through a tricky campaign in which they have lost as many games as they have won.
