Chelsea has placed Liverpool target Mason Mount on the transfer market
Liverpool fans will be delighted to learn that Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is a potential summer transfer target for the Reds. With the Reds in transition, having a great midfielder like Mount may be quite beneficial.
Since coming into the first team under Frank Lampard, Mount has been a star player for Chelsea. Since then, he has continued to excel under Thomas Tuchel and now Graham Potter, delivering goals and assists in important periods for the club.
However, contract talks between Chelsea and Mount have stalled, and it appears that the player may be available for transfer if a deal is not made before the summer. Several big clubs, including Liverpool, have expressed interest. (Twitter: Fabrizio Romano)
Adding a playmaker like Mount to Liverpool’s midfield would provide much-needed creativity and energy. The Reds have struggled in midfield this season, with important player injuries such as Thiago Alcantara disturbing the squad’s balance and, more often than not, the team finding itself short on depth.
Mount up for the Reds?
Mount’s ability to create opportunities, make critical passes, and score goals would make him an important addition to Liverpool’s midfield. He has already demonstrated his ability to play at the highest level in the Premier League, and his work ethic and determination would complement Jürgen Klopp’s high-pressing style of play.
Of course, signing Mount would be difficult because Chelsea would almost certainly expect a large amount for their prized asset. Yet, the fact that he would be entering the final year of his contract (Transfermarkt) might play a role in Liverpool’s pursuit of him.
Liverpool is in transition right now, with several key players nearing the end of their careers. The Reds haven’t bought straight from a big four opponent in a long time, so it’d be nice to see them show interest in bringing on one of the league’s best.
Mount would undoubtedly suit the bill as new blood to inject new energy and ideas into the squad. It remains to be seen whether Liverpool can sign Mount in the summer, but the prospect of adding such a great player to the squad excites Reds fans.
Mount, with his potential and demonstrated talent, might be the missing piece in Liverpool’s midfield puzzle, allowing the team to challenge for big trophies once more.
