Liverpool losing 30-year-old could help forge next Steven Gerrard

Liverpool are currently poised on the cusp of dynasty. The Reds are sweeping all before them and doing so with a side full of established stars with a handful of youth prospects starting to establish their case for a place in the side. The midfield sees our most dramatic blend of youth and experience. Liverpool losing Gini Wijnaldum could well prove the making of Curtis Jones.

Curtis Jones meteoric rise

This season has seen Curtis Jones establish himself as a Premier League midfielder.

At the minute he’d walk into most sides in the division.

The Scouser has notched nine appearances in the Premier League this term, five as a starter. He’s also started four games in the Champions League.

December has seen the best of the boy wonder.

Jones put in a man of the match display against Spurs, not long after being the only bright spark against Fulham.

Gini Wijnaldum contract

Over the summer Gini Wijnaldum entered the final year of his contract at Anfield.

The Dutchman is a vital cog of the Liverpool midfield machine, we’ve seen that time and again this season.

Fans have been telling the club to just stick a contract in front of him and let him put whatever numbers he wants in there.

His industriousness in the middle have made the Reds impossible to play against, we can’t imagine a midfield without him.

Gini Wijnaldum and Curtis Jones

Should the Reds lose their Dutch midfielder then Gini Wijnaldum leaving could be the making of Curtis Jones.

The Scouser thoroughly deserves the murmored tag of being the next Gerrard.

Whilst we aren’t saying out loud yet he does fit the bill: he’s brilliant, Scouse and he dominates the midfield.

Sure, he doesn’t have precisely the same style of play but that won’t stop us drawing comparisons.

Curtis Jones would surely see his role elevated if Gini Wijnaldum left.

The boss loves to promote from within rather than hiring from outside.

We need to look at the positives of Gini leaving, forging the next Gerrard could well be one.
