Liverpool is reportedly considering a move for a key member of Chelsea’s midfield setup, according to reports on Friday.
Mason Mount Liverpool,: The player on the Reds’ radar? Mason Mount.
Of course, Mason Mount’s future has dominated the headlines in west London for much of the season.
This comes as the powers that be at Stamford Bridge continue to work on tying down the English international for the long term.
After a contract renewal agreement was once viewed as a near formality between the two parties, negotiations have dragged on in an unsettling manner, culminating in suggestions that if Mount does not commit to new terms soon, he may be moved on come the summer.
And, as previously stated, one club eager to capitalize on the situation is Liverpool.
Of course, it is common knowledge that Jurgen Klopp and his team are looking for new blood in the middle of the park, despite ongoing criticism of the Reds’ recent recruitment strategy.
Mount, who could be available for a bargain with only a year left on his contract in June, has been identified as a market opportunity.
Chelsea is unlikely to be enthusiastic about losing the club’s youth product to a direct rival, but if an offer is deemed sufficient, the club may be forced to consider such a sale.
