Harvey Elliott has plenty of praise for Curtis Jones. The teenager wants to work closely with his teammate.
Harvey Elliott clearly rates Curtis Jones incredibly highly. He revealed as much in an interview with Liverpoolfc.com.
The 18-year-old has just agreed a new five-year contract with Liverpool and is very much looking towards the future at Anfield. It seems Jones is set to play a big part in that.
Harvey Elliott on Curtis Jones
“I can’t speak highly enough of Curtis, he’s a top boy as well as a top player,” said Elliott.
“He’s a prime example, as well as Trent [Alexander-Arnold], in how the path is there, it’s just down to you whether to take it or not.

“You look at Curt in games – he’s a game-changer, in my opinion. He’s only going to go from strength to strength.
“I’ve been speaking closely with him and working with him because he’s the same sort of age bracket. We get on really well. He’s a legend to be around.”
For what it’s worth, we’re completely behind Elliott’s estimation here. Jones is a fantastic player and is on course to becoming one of the best in the league.
That’s no exaggeration – Jones truly looks like a perfect fit for Liverpool and is already holding his own with the Premier League’s best.
We’re already very excited about Jones and Elliott going forward. Hearing that the latter sees it too only increases that.
We’ve talked before about these two looking like future stars and we’ll back Liverpool to get them there. In fact, we could be looking at them as fundamental parts of the Reds’ squad in just a year’s time.
Everyone saw how quickly Jones developed last season, while Elliott’s progress at Blackburn Rovers was simply extraordinary. Who’s to say they won’t be stars in a year?
We can’t wait to find out.
