Liverpool signing Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is the transfer that journalist Jacque Talbot is the most confident about happening this summer.
Speaking on his YouTube channel, the reporter was asked which of the rumoured moves circulating at the moment could he realistically see taking place.
“Here’s a question for you, ‘which transfer are you the most confident about happening in the summer?’,” read Talbot.
“Which transfer am I most confident about? Mason Mount to Liverpool, James Maddison to Newcastle?
“Yeah maybe, I think it’s depending on Champions League for him, I think it’s depending on Champions League.”
According to GOAL, the Reds are willing to go all out to sign the Chelsea midfielder this summer.
Mount to Liverpool – Talbot thinks so!
With Jurgen Klopp in desperate need of midfield additions once the transfer window opens, Mount would certainly be a brilliant option for Liverpool.
As two-time winner of Chelsea’s Player of the Season award, the 24-year-old has shown he is capable of competing at the very highest level.
Having made 128 appearances in the Premier League, the England international has also portrayed his pedigree on the European stage, having assisted the winning goal in the 2021 Champions League final.
Although the West London outfit reportedly hope to gain £70m for Mount’s services, his dwindling contract is likely to force the club’s hand – so a cheaper deal could certainly be on the cards.
As it stands, Talbot currently believes Mount is more likely to sign for Liverpool than Jude Bellingham is – despite being the club’s number one target, but what a summer it would be if the Merseyside outfit landed both of them!
