Liverpool are now set to announce a bargain-price deal for the Chelsea star
According to reports, Liverpool currently believe they may have a chance to sign Mason Mount from Chelsea on the cheap.
Journalist Ben Jacobs reports that negotiations with “Chelsea” regarding the contract of the 24-year-old player of the England national team have stalled. However, the expected appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as manager could still be a factor.
While nothing is set in stone at the moment, Liverpool could still be in the running to sign Mountain, with the prospect of playing under Jurgen Klopp potentially appealing to the Chelsea star, who could also move to Merseyside. to resume his career.
Although Mount has endured two difficult seasons at Chelsea, the west London club could soon find themselves in a situation where they have to sell the 24-year-old, in which case Liverpool would be happy to make the move. Mount remains a fan favorite at Stamford Bridge.
There’s no denying that the Chelsea man could be a great coup for Liverpool and Klopp would be the right manager to get the best out of the playmaker, although a deal price for Mount could still be north of £50m or perhaps £60m.
Sometimes a player comes onto the market who seems to be a great fit for a certain team. With Mount and Liverpool this summer, it seems the 24-year-old star was born to play at Anfield.
With talks with Chelsea at an impasse, Liverpool could have a good chance of securing a deal for Mountain. With a potential deal in place, Klopp and his team will have to work tirelessly to bring the England international to the Merseysiders.
In other news, the deal is done. Jurgen Klopp has a new Ilkay Gundoga with huge transfers at Liverpool.
