Liverpool keen on signing 23-year-old Chelsea midfield maestro

Liverpool and Man City are monitoring Chelsea attacker Mason Mount’s situation in London. The economic sanctions imposed on Chelsea are stopping them from offering new contracts to their star footballers, and England international is one such name.

Mount will have only two years left on his deal with Chelsea after the ongoing campaign, and the Blues are eager to tie him down to a longer deal. One of the most influential footballers at Stamford Bridge, Mason is not one of the biggest earners at the club.

The 23-year-old attacker is reportedly on £70,000-a-week in wages. With sanctions preventing the Blues from offering the English attacker a much-improved deal, which his displays certainly deserve, Liverpool and Man City are looking to take advantage of the situation.

Both Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp are reportedly big admirers of the Englishman and have asked their respective boards to keep a close eye on his situation. The Blues were reportedly close to offering a new, improved contract to Mason just before the sanctions imposed on their beleaguered owner Abramovich.

The development hampered Chelsea’s quest of tying down quite a few of their footballers to longer deals. They are resigned to losing Rudiger and Christensen on free deals this summer. The report states that Liverpool and Man City are not in a position to make an approach for Mount’s signature. Newcastle United are also said to be monitoring the attacker’s situation.
