24-year-old to leave Premier League club with Liverpool leading transfer race
Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is reportedly set to leave this summer, with Liverpool the favourites to sign the 24-year-old.
According to the Guardian, expectations are growing that Mount will leave Chelsea at the end of this season with the Cobham academy graduate yet to sign a new long-term contract, with the imminent arrival of Mauricio Pochettino unlikely to change the situation.
As per the report, Liverpool are the current favourites to sign the England playmaker as Jurgen Klopp looks to add to his central midfield options this summer, with Mount a perfect candidate to add creativity and attacking intent to the Merseyside giants.
And this update could be massive in Liverpool’s attempt to sign Mount, with the expectation being that the midfielder would sign a new deal with Chelsea after Pochettino’s appointment was made official, with the Argentine seemingly a fan of the England star.
However, it now appears that Mount will leave Chelsea regardless of which manager is hired this summer, and for Liverpool, the Reds could now have a golden chance to sign one of the Premier League’s most creative midfielders at a good rate.
Liverpool must swoop for Mount if he leaves Chelsea for good
Mount leaving Chelsea has always felt like an unlikely transfer given his intense loyalty to the club, yet with the midfielder now expected to leave, Liverpool simply have to swoop for the 24-year-old in what could be one of their best deals this summer.
The Chelsea playmaker could become a star at Liverpool under Klopp’s coaching, and with the midfielder now expected to leave, time is of the essence for the Anfield side to wrap up a deal for the England international.
