Mason Mount, a star for Chelsea, would “upset” the Stamford Bridge fans by joining Premier League rivals Liverpool in the summer
Although Graham Potter’s team defeated Leeds United at the weekend to end their winless streak, the Blues’ attempts to retain Mount at the club appear to have taken a hit. Mount is eager to sign with Liverpool, according to Football Insider, because he greatly admires the club’s manager Jürgen Klopp and wants to work with the German.
According to the report, Juventus and the Merseyside giants have both indicated an interest in using middlemen to wrest the England international from west London. At the beginning of the year, Mount began the final 18 months of his £80,000 per week deal, leaving him unsure of his long-term prospects.
It is believed that the midfielder’s refusal to accept new conditions is a result of his desire to become one of Chelsea’s highest-paid players. However, according to transfer expert Dean Jones, who spoke with GIVEMESPORT recently, the capital club might make progress in negotiations because of worries that an identity crisis could develop if Mount completes his exit.
Considering that Mount averages 1.4 shots, the same number of tackles, and 1.3 key passes per Premier League game this season, he undoubtedly helps on both sides of the field. Although he has contributed three goals this season, the academy product has not scored as frequently as Chelsea would have preferred.
However, the Blues have had trouble dismantling opponents since the season began, and they have scored the fewest goals among the top 10 Premier League teams. Mount has contributed to 70 goals since joining Chelsea’s senior team, demonstrating his ability to have an effect in the final third.
