Liverpool most likely to sign Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount, genuine chance it happens – journalist

Liverpool are the club most likely to sign Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount, if he fails to agree a new contract with the Blues.

That’s according to football.london journalist Bobby Vincent, who spoke with the Liverpool Echo in an interview.

He claimed that if the 24-year-old decides to leave Stamford Bridge, he would expect Anfield to be the destination.

“If you put me on the spot right now, then I’d say yes, he will still be a Chelsea player next season,” Vincent said.

“However, I cannot be too sure on that. There’s every chance, if the contract is not sorted out, he will leave the club.

“I have to say if I had to pick one destination, I’d say Liverpool considering how much interest they have shown in Mount.”

Mount could actually join Liverpool

The England international is out of contract in the summer of 2024 and talks over a new deal haven’t progressed like they were once expected to.

Therefore, if Chelsea are forced to cash-in on the midfielder at the end of the season, Liverpool could grab themselves a bargain.

Having only just turned 24 years old, Mount has already played 124 matches in the Premier League – during which he has bagged 27 goals and 24 assists.

Chelsea teammate Raheem Sterling has always been full of praise for the attacking midfielder, having once claimed he produced the best training session he had ever seen, while the pair were on international duty with England.

Liverpool most certainly need reinforcements in the middle of the park, and with Mount’s versatility, this could be a good signing for the Reds.

Potentially available on a cut-price deal, Klopp hopes to lure the player to Anfield in the summer. Perhaps he could bring Thiago Silva with him.
