Chelsea are going to do everything in their power to keep Mason Mount at the club.
Liverpool are monitoring Mason Mount‘s situation at Stamford Bridge, journalist Simon Phillips has informed GIVEMESPORT.
The Englishman will see his contract expiring in 2024 and has so far failed to agree with a new one with Chelsea.
Last month, Phillips admitted that Chelsea would continue contract talks with Mount after the World Cup and that there was confidence something would get done.
Liverpool are one of those sides who are thought to have Mount, who is valued at around £77m by the CIES Football Observatory, on their radar.
As per the reports of The Guardian, the Reds are monitoring the player. Elsewhere, a report from The Telegraph claims that it could take a £300,000-a-week offer to persuade him to stay at Stamford Bridge.
Phillips has told GMS that Liverpool are indeed monitoring Mount’s contract situation at Chelsea.
On the 23-year-old, the journalist said: “There are a lot of English clubs watching this situation. Liverpool, I know to be one of them. They’re keeping an eye on it. If it’s not going to be signed, they’re going to be there waiting.”
Mount will be a little bit disappointed with how his World Cup went. After starting England’s first two games, he was dropped to the bench for the win against Wales and never won his place back. He still made four appearances but failed to score or provide an assist in any of them.
Mount is also an individual who works extremely hard on the pitch. Chelsea are going to do everything in their power to keep their academy graduate at the club.
