Reports: £4.2million-a-year star prepared to agree a move to Liverpool
Liverpool are on their way to cracking a deal with the Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount.
According to Football insider, the England international is prepared to agree on a move from Stamford Bridge to Anfield at the end of this season. The report also suggests the current Blues midfielder has rejected multiple renewal offers from his current club as he is very keen to join the Merseyside giants.
The Englishman is currently earning a salary of £4.2M a year, £80,000 a week, and even the Italian giants Juventus are also monitoring the midfielder’s position closely.
Why Liverpool wants Mason Mount?
Mount is a player of high quality. He has high agility and ball control. The star boy is capable of controlling the ball in tight spaces and creating goal-threatening passes outside the six-yard box. We can call him a Firmino replacement who can hold the ball in attacking positions. The one who does not scores a lot but can create quite often.
Mount has an expected xG of 1.9, he has a PrgC of 47, and a PrgP of 97, according to FBref.
The Chelsea lad can play in multiple positions. Sometimes as a number 10, as a winger, and also as a creative midfielder.
The Reds are currently leading the race to sign the quality midfielder. The London club are nowhere near the Champions League spot and the midfielder will look to compete in European competitions. LFC has the chance to fight for the top 4 spot and another thing that goes in their favor is Jurgen Klopp’s pull.
The German can extract the best from his players. His man-management skills are exceptional, and the only person that can pull the Reds out of this situation is Klopp himself.
Another reason why Mason is looking for a way out is the arrival of new signing Enzo Fernandez. The ex-Benfica star has been a regular starter since the day he joined the English club. The Blues’ head coach Graham Potter seems to trust more on the new signing than the existing players.
This could be a match made in heaven for both LFC and the 24-year-old.
