Klopp ready to make stunning move to sign £80k-a-week star from Liverpool rivals
It has been claimed that Liverpool are ready to make a move for Mason Mount should he not sign a new contract at Chelsea.
Mount has become one of the most important players at Stamford Bridge over the past few seasons and is a man that Graham Potter can totally rely on
But Mount’s current stint with the Blues ends in 2024 and there has been some speculation in the media that the club are having complications on agreeing a new contract with the midfielder.
But now – according to The Athletic, a breakthrough has been reached in recent weeks following latest talks between Mount’s representatives and Chelsea chairman Todd Boelhy and co-owner Behdad Eghbali.
While there are still details to finalize, the report claims a ‘significant’ step has been taken with there now hope the deal can be finalized after a final round of talks in the New Year.
It is no secret that Jurgen Klopp is a big fan of the England midfielder and would love to add him to the squad in order to revamp his Liverpool side.
You look at all the clubs that are keeping a close eye on the situation of Mount at Chelsea – and it just shows how good he really is.
We are sure that he will not leave Chelsea in the near future – but if he did – he would thrive under Klopp as the German boss is one of the best in the game and a man that will let players like Mount play freely
