Liverpool reportedly view Mason Mount as the ‘perfect’ signing this summer, with the Reds also willing to pay the England international’s wage demands.
According to Goal, the Merseyside giants are willing to go all out to sign the Chelsea midfielder, who looks increasingly likely to leave west London as the Blues struggle to pen the playmaker down to a new contract, a situation Liverpool are looking to take advantage of.
As per the report, Liverpool are keen admirers of Mount, a player who many supporters and pundits believe could work well under a manager like Jurgen Klopp, and the Reds now appear eager to match the 24-year-old’s contract demands that have so far prevented the midfielder from renewing at Chelsea.
With Chelsea warming to a sale amid a mass squad overhaul this summer, Liverpool could be well-positioned to sign Mount if they’re willing to go through with their promise to match the midfielder’s contract demands, which could make the England star one of the best-paid players at the club.
Indeed, whilst this might be a decision that some Liverpool supporters will disagree on, there’s no denying that Mount offers a lot of what the Anfield side are missing in the midfielder. And under Klopp, the Chelsea star could find a new lease in life having struggled at Stamford Bridge for the last two seasons.
Liverpool signing Mount could be one of the deals of the summer
Mount is clearly in need of something new, and with Chelsea set for the mother of all firesales this summer, a move to Liverpool could be perfect for the Three Lions star, and a deal could end up being one of the best of the entire window.
The 24-year-old is a player who would be perfect for Klopp’s style of play, and with Mount ready for a new chapter in his career, a move to Anfield makes a lot of sense for the Chelsea man, who could flourish on Merseyside in the years to come.
