Ward-Prowse has been one of the Saints’ standout players in recent seasons, pulling the strings in midfield.


The 27-year-old registered two assists on Wednesday in Southampton’s 3-2 win against Tottenham Hotspur, adding to his ten direct goal contributions in 22 top flight appearances so far this season.



Former top flight star Crooks is impressed with Ward-Prowse’s performances and sees him being a perfect fit for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.


Crooks stressed that Ward-Prowse keeps on getting better for Southampton and added he has no idea why the Merseyside giants are yet to swoop for him.



“The man at the heart of a splendid week for the Saints was, without doubt, Ward-Prowse”, Crooks wrote in his BBC column.


“He was outstanding against Tottenham in midweek, producing two excellent assists.



“I’ve been singing the praises of this gifted midfielder for some time now, and his performances for Southampton only seem to get better.


“I don’t know what Liverpool are waiting for – he’s made for them.”


Ward-Prowse is a fixture in Ralph Hasenhuttl’s squad and only time will tell whether Liverpool will make any moves to snare him away from St. Mary’s.
