Mason Mount has been told to join Liverpool in the summer.
The Reds are on the verge of a major midfielder overhaul this summer and Mount has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield.
He is currently out with an abdomen injury and has been out of the first team since February 3rd.
The Blues would need to offload some players to balance their spending in the market and academy players will recoup a sizeable fee.
Mount’s contract with Chelsea expires in the summer of 2024 and the club would want to avoid losing him for free next year.
Ex-Reds player Stan Collymore has urged Mount to join Anfield to elevate his career to the next level.
Collymore on social media: “I know Liverpool have been sniffing around Mason.
“If you’re putting two and two together and making 22 rather than four, the suggestion could be that he’s going to sign for Liverpool, the deal is already done and, as and when he signs for Liverpool and it becomes a fact on social media, Chelsea fans will have a pop at him.
“It’s his club and he’s been there a long, long, time. There were rumours Todd Boehly wanted to give him a new contract but I think going to Liverpool would be a step up.”
