Liverpool preparing to bid for 'special' PL player, they really think they can get him to Anfield

Liverpool are getting ready to make their move to sign Chelsea’s Mason Mount this summer.

Mount has emerged as a genuine transfer target for Liverpool as they look to revamp their midfield. Various sources have named the 24-year-old as one of the players on the Reds’ radar and his contract situation means he could be on the market.

Now, according to Football London, Liverpool genuinely believe they can ‘lure’ Mount away from Stamford Bridge. As a result, the Reds are said to be ready to follow up their ‘serious interest’ with an offer.

Any offer would reportedly be on the proviso that Mount doesn’t agree a new deal at Chelsea in the meantime. But should the situation remain unchanged come the end of the season, then Liverpool will supposedly make their move.

It’s claimed that they’ll also make their move under the impression that they can sign the England man on a ‘cut-price’ deal.

Liverpool confident of Mount coup

This is one that isn’t going away any time soon. Unless Mount does unexpectedly put pen to paper on a new deal at Chelsea in the next six weeks or so, then this saga will rumble on.

By the sounds of things, Liverpool are getting confident that it’s a saga that will end with Mount in a Liverpool shirt.

If that does end up happening, it really will be quite the coup for the Reds. The Chelsea academy graduate would have seemed absolutely unattainable only a short while ago.

His ‘special’ performances for the Blues would have put him out of the price-range of most clubs. But having come through at Cobham, Mount is also pretty synonymous with Chelsea by now. There was a feeling that he could even become a one-club man.

The chance to sign a top England international doesn’t come around every day. Liverpool have to take advantage of the uncertainty and tie Mount down.

Quite what a ‘cut-price’ deal for him might look like remains to be seen. But it’s unlikely that the Reds will want to go as high as the £50m that has been suggested. The saga goes on.
