Teenage Liverpool target drops Arsenal hint - reports

Published Add your comment

Blackburn defender Phil Jones - a reported transfer target for Liverpool - has revealed his admiration for Arsenal, who are also allegedly monitoring his progress.

The 19-year-old has long been touted to make the move to one of the so-called 'big four' clubs and continues to impress with his commanding displays at the back for Rovers.

Various sources claimed last week that both Liverpool and Arsenal are considering making their moves for the England under 21 international in the summer, who has hinted he would favour a move to the Emirates stadium.

"I think Arsenal play the prettiest football in the Premier League," Jones said, as reported by The Independent.

"Obviously money helps. Having more money allows you to play in a certain way, but that's the beauty of the Premier League – there are so many different styles.

"You know it's not easy for Arsenal to go to Stoke and win a game there anymore. It's not knocking anyone's style, it's just the nature of the Premier League and that's why everyone loves it."


As well as Jones, Liverpool and Arsenal are both said to be tracking Bolton centre-back Gary Cahill in order to bolster their respective defences.

Arsenal, however, are seemingly more in need of reinforcements in central defence than Liverpool, and Arsene Wenger has been urged to bring in a player in a similar mould to Gunners legend Tony Adams.

Paris Saint-Germain stopper Mamadou Sakho has also been linked with a move to the Emirates and Anfield, respectively.
