Mason Mount is still wanted by Liverpool, and they are hopeful that they may bring him away from Chelsea during the summer transfer window.
It is quite probable that the Reds will sign the England international, whose contract expires in 2024, according to talkSPORT.
The attacking midfielder for the Three Lions and Chelsea have been unable to come to new terms, and Liverpool is growing more optimistic that they will be able to complete his acquisition.
Mount had a direct hand in 18 goals in all competitions in the 2020–21 season and was crucial to the team’s Champions League triumph. He assisted in the game’s decisive goal against Manchester City.
The 24-year-old was a key contributor to Tuchel’s squad that won the UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup last year, scoring 11 goals and dishing out 10 assists in the Premier League.
Under the direction of his new supervisor, Graham Potter, he has not been able to shine this semester. Chelsea only accrued 2 points last month and failed to win a single league game.
A player of Mount’s versatility must be signed since Liverpool desperately needs to bolster their midfield.
He has a reputation for working hard both on and off the ball. He is ready to both forward in attack and track back to assist on defense.
The playmaker’s current salary is reported to be £3.9 million annually, or $75,000 per week (The Guardian), and he would want a respectable pay increase to transfer to Anfield.
