PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! 790942027">Gareth Southgate will struggle to ignore Liverpool star Curtis Jones if he maintains his current form. That is according to former Premier League goalscorer Kevin Phillips, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after Croatian newspaper Sportske Novosti revealed Liverpool plan to sell Marko Grujic this summer following the emergence of Jones. The 24-year-old midfielder, currently on loan with Porto, could reportedly fetch £30million in the summer after falling well behind Jones in the pecking order. Jones’ nifty interplay and technical skillset have won plaudits across his 28 Liverpool appearances this season, with many haggling for him to earn a first England call-up. Phillips says Jones has every chance of making Southgate’s next squad and that he could plant his flag during the triple-header in March. He told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs: “I think when you’re performing for Liverpool and you’re English, an England manager can’t ignore it. It’s as simple as that.

. Obviously, they’re not going to be champions this year but they played really well against Leipzig the other night and Jones was at the heart of it.
“When the pressure’s on, he can perform. And there’s certainly gonna be pressure situations in the summer with the Euros.
“So Southgate will be looking. Whether he makes the squad or not, I don’t know. There’s good competition in that area.
