Mason Mount now closer to signing for Liverpool than ever before after bombshell update – report

Posted by

Mauricio Pochettino’s impending arrival at Stamford Bridge will reportedly have no bearing on Mason Mount’s future at the club.

Football Insider now reports that the Englishman is set to depart Chelsea this summer alongside Mateo Kovacic and Hakim Ziyech in a first wave of exits.

The news will come as music to the ears of Liverpool’s recruitment team, especially with contract negotiations having reached a standstill.

Liverpool must sign Mason Mount this summer

Chelsea are understood to want upwards of £70m for Mount, even despite the midfielder’s contract running out in the summer of 2024.

The common consensus is that the Blues will be extremely lucky to get close to that figure, even if £60m isn’t necessarily out of reach.

For a 24-year-old midfield operator who is, generally speaking, durable, positionally versatile and should still have a bright future ahead of him in the game, that could still represent a great bargain for the club.

It’ll be greatly interesting to see whether the rise of Curtis Jones affects our plans in the market at all, though there’ll still be room for the England international and at least one other to replenish the department in question.

  1. £70m 😂.

    Wouldn’t even pay £30m for this guy. He’s basically Joe Cole mkII.

    Curtis Jones is stepping up and with better players available at lower fees and wages (Gravenberch, Ugarte, etc). This would be a colossal waste of money. Let’s face it, the fee is inflated cos he plays for a big six club, but reality is that he’s at the level of a Todd Cantwell or a Harry Wilson.

  2. Jones hasade a good start but abandoning plans to bring in 2-3 midfielders would be madness but in keeping with Klopps previous foolishness

  3. What a load of rubbish this NOT really news and definitely not a bombshell, stop writing rubbish speculatary gossip ffs

  4. Even if they decide to keep Jones instead of selling him alongside Carvelho, Hendo and Fabhino, we still need at least two first eleven midfieders. Preferably three.

  5. Why is he now closer to signing?
    What ‘bombshell report’?

    What a load of bullhook writing… as usual..

    Another 30seconds of my life wasted.. why do I fall for the guff…

  6. Yes please I’ll take him glad I don’t really read all peoples comments because they don’t really no anything , sitting at home with pizza and a drink they probably are hahaha I’ll welcome him as most people already know this , Mount could become great again under Klopp , our fans will love that because Mount has potential 😊
