Liverpool’s Pursuit of Mason Mount Intensifies as Pochettino Emerges as Key Player 

 Chelsea would sell Liverpool target Mason Mount in the upcoming summer window if he does not agree to a new contract.

On Monday (15 May), this website reported that incoming Blues manager Mauricio Pochettino is expected to meet with the 24-year-old in an attempt to encourage him to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge.

Pochettino, on the other hand, will have no say over the financial deal offered to Mount, and Chelsea intend to transfer the England international if an agreement cannot be struck.

The Blues are understood to be desperate to keep him from going for free in 2024, with the Londoners needing to recoup transfer costs after their massive reported £530 million+ transfer outlay this season.

Liverpool and Arsenal were both preparing summer offers for Mount.

Man United and Bayern Munich are also rumored to be interested in signing the midfielder.

Mount’s current contract, which pays him an estimated £80,000 per week, expires in June 2024, which means he may reach a pre-contract agreement with foreign sides in roughly seven months.

He is expecting parity with top-earning Chelsea players like Raheem Sterling and Reece James in order to sign a new contract at Stamford Bridge.

The midfielder, who played for England at the 2022 World Cup, has been ruled out for the rest of the 2022-23 season after undergoing surgery in April for a longstanding stomach ailment.

Mount had three goals and six assists in 35 appearances for Chelsea during a difficult season.

That falls far short of his career high of 13 goals and 16 assists in 53 games during the 2021-22 season.

Liverpool are planning a midfield revamp in the summer transfer window, with players like James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Naby Keita due to depart Anfield for free next month.
