Liverpool interested in signing Mason Mount from Chelsea

Mason Mount’s negotiations for a new contract with Chelsea have broken down, and the England international appears destined to leave Stamford Bridge in the summer.

The midfielder appears to be on the outs with just one year remaining on his contract and Chelsea need to sell in order to balance the books.

The 24-year-old had a season marred by injuries, making only 20 league starts, and has been ruled out for the remainder of the year.

Liverpool and Arsenal are contemplating offers for Mount, while Bayern Munich is also keeping an eye on the Englishman, according to Football Insider.

According to the source, Liverpool have a prepared offer since they aim to improve their midfield this summer. In order to reinforce the middle of the park at Anfield, Mount might be the objective now that a deal for Jude Bellingham is improbable.

With a disappointing season that has seen them struggle for the majority of the season, Liverpool looks set to miss out on Champions League football next season barring a miracle. They are currently in seventh place heading into their weekend matchup with Tottenham.

Recruitment of a midfielder is a top priority because Naby Keita, James Milner, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are expected to go on their own in the summer. There have also been rumors about Matheus Nunes of Wolves.

Despite having a challenging season, Mount could bring a wealth of experience and quality in the final third to the Liverpool midfield.

Mount has been a standout player over the years, earning Joe Cole’s praise with his “unbelievable” statistics for Chelsea in 195 games and 33 goals and 37 assists. Given his contract status, Liverpool may be able to sign him for a lower price.

Liverpool might not want to deviate from their wage structure to bring in a new signing because it is believed that his wage demands at Chelsea have been the obstacle to a new contract.

Additionally, they might have a difficult time persuading him to join without Champions League football if the reports of interest from Arsenal and Bayern are accurate.

The Reds may benefit much from securing a deal for Mount early in the window as they prepare for the busy summer of team rebuilding necessary to contend at the top of the table once more.
