As we approach the summer transfer window, football.london takes a look at the latest regarding Mason Mount and his contract situation with Chelsea
Liverpool are seriously interested in signing Mason Mount from Chelsea this summer as contract talks with the west London club continue to stall.
The 24-year-old has just over 12 months remaining on his new contract and despite months of negotiations over an extension, the two parties are no closer to settling on an agreement.
Mount wants to stay at Chelsea and the feeling is mutual but the two are some way off in what they want regarding an extension.
Mount, who has won player of the season at Chelsea twice since breaking into the first-team in 2019 under Frank Lampard, wants a salary to reflect his importance to the squad.
A source has told football.london that the Reds are seriously interested in the England international and are preparing to make a move for the midfielder in the summer should the situation remain unsolved.
Liverpool believe they can lure Mount to Anfield and will be trying to do so on a cut-price deal with a year remaining on his deal by the time the summer transfer window opens.
Chelsea head coach Graham Potter was recently quizzed about Mount’s future and there seemed to be an acceptance that the midfielder could call time on his reign at Stamford Bridge in the summer if the situation was not resolved.
