Chelsea attacking midfielder Mason Mount is facing an uncertain future and he may have just taken a step closer to a potential transfer to rivals Liverpool.
After a major development, the star’s potential transfer from Chelsea to Liverpool may be getting closer.
The England international has been an important performer for Chelsea in recent years, but his contract will expire this summer, and it appears that little has been done to secure his future.
Live Football Scores claims that Mount’s father has just hired a new agent to assist in resolving the 24-year-old’s predicament. However, the same source has previously claimed that Liverpool are in the lead for this deal.
LFC certainly need a shake-up in midfield this summer after a difficult campaign, with Mount likely to be an upgrade on ageing players like Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Thiago Alcantara, while there is also a need to replace Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who are both set to become free agents in the summer.
Even though Mount’s performance has dipped this year, he is far from the only Chelsea player to have fallen short of expectations, so Liverpool can be sure that he would rebound at Anfield.
This most recent development suggests that Mount and his father are considering looking for a new challenge at the right moment.
