Liverpool are trying hard to sign Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount. Mason’s future at Stamford Bridge is uncertain as a significant gap exists between the player and the club in the negotiation.

The English midfielder wants to increase his salary to be equal to other senior players and new signings. The current Chelsea midfielder has only 18 months left in his contract, this could force the Blues to make a decision over his future this summer.

The Reds are closely monitoring the situation and are patent with their approach. But at the same time, the Merseyside giants want to take full advantage of the situation.

Why Liverpool wants Mason Mount?

Jurgen Klopp needs to fix Red’s midfield in the Summer transfer window and the 24-year-old could be a perfect fit for the former Premier League champions in the middle of the park.

Chelsea boss Graham Potter admitted that the talks are complicated, but at the same time, he hopes it will be sorted between the two parties.

Potter said

“It is always complicated, there’s always negotiations. It is best that I leave it between Mason and the club.

It is the best way for that to be dealt with. As far as I am concerned, he is fantastic to work with.”

Potter also said

“He is an important player for us. I hope it gets resolved quickly.”

The England international has started 19 of the Blue’s 22 Premier League matches this campaign, where he has scored 3 goals and given 2 assists. The 24-year-old has an expected xG of 1.9 and a PrgC of 46.

The Reds need a player who can give stability in their midfield and also can provide attacking input upfront. The Portsmouth-born midfielder does the same for the London club.

Thus, he could be a perfect fit for the Merseyside giants. But the question remains if Jude Bellingham will eat up all the transfer budget.
