Liverpool backed to complete signing of midfielder after £300k-a-week reveal
Mount’s deal expires in just over 18 months and his situation has prompted clubs to check whether he could be lured away from Stamford Bridge.
The 23-year-old has been in discussions with Chelsea since the summer and, with no sign of a breakthrough, and now there is reports that he has rejected the latest offer from the club.
Now the Daily Mail. has claimed that Mount apparently seeks parity with fellow England star Raheem Sterling and has rejected the latest offer from the Blues – reported to be around the £300,000-a-week mark.
Now – amid all the speculation – Paul Robinson has come out and claimed that Liverpool have a very good chance of completing a deal for the midfielder.
Robinson told Football Insider: “Players of Mount’s ilk do not come around very often.
“Look, Chelsea will be desperate to keep hold of him so they will struggle to get him. There is also an emotional connection between the player and Chelsea.
“Realistically, can I see it happening? No. Would it benefit Liverpool? Yes, hugely.
“Financially it would have to be a big offer, even if he gets into the last 12 months of his contract. Chelsea will fight tooth and nail to keep him. It would take a huge fee.”
Mount is a very impressive and it was a shock to see that he has rejected the latest offer from Chelsea.
But if he were to sign for any club – Liverpool would be a very good move for the man – he could thrive under Jurgen Klopp
