Liverpool ‘very keen’ on Mason Mount

Liverpool 'very keen' on Mason Mount - Liverpool News

Liverpool are ‘very keen’ on a deal to sign Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount this summer, according to transfer window correspondent Graeme Bailey.

The Lowdown: Contract talks on hold

The Premier League playmaker has now entered the final 18 months of his contract at Stamford Bridge and is facing an uncertain future after rejecting an offer to extend his stay.

The Merseyside outfit have been credited with an interest in the England international, with Jurgen Klopp in desperate need of midfield reinforcements.

The Athletic’s David Ornstein recently confirmed that the Blues have put contract talks with the 24-year-old on hold and will decide at the end of the season whether to cash in or agree a new deal.

The Latest: Liverpool ‘keen’ on Mount

Taking to Twitter, Bailey revealed that Liverpool hold a strong admiration for Mount and are weighing up whether to make a summer approach. He wrote:

“Liverpool are very keen on Mason Mount amid Chelsea contract uncertainty.

“Jurgen Klopp planning midfield overhaul and Mount has emerged as [a] genuine option for The Reds.”

Expanding in his 90min column, Bailey reveals the SW6 academy graduate would prefer to remain in the capital as it stands, but FSG are ready to capitalise should that change.

The Verdict: Henderson heir?

Jordan Henderson isn’t getting any younger (32), and with Mount having been dubbed a ‘leader’ by talent scout Jacek Kulig, he could be the perfect heir when the captain hangs up his boots.

The Nike-sponsored star has posted 70 goal contributions in 191 senior outings for Chelsea and is a versatile option, having operated in seven various positions throughout his career.

The Portsmouth-born talent also ranks in the 92nd percentile for most progressive passes per game, displaying his desire to play on the front foot and create dangerous phases for his team.

Mount actually shares the same agent as Fabio Carvalho so this could potentially give Liverpool an advantage should they try to get a deal over the line in the summer.
