Newcastle would have entered the dance to secure the services of a Chelsea midfielder during the summer transfer window. Liverpool and Manchester United are also said to be in on it.
Very spendthrift during the last mercatos, Chelsea has a whopping 32 players in its workforce. The Blues will have to degrease, during the summer, and some competitors intend to take advantage of it.
Sport Liverpool would be on pole to welcome him
According to information reported by Team Talk, Mason Mount is the target of several Premier League clubs, including Newcastle, Liverpool and Manchester United. Negotiations over his extension with Chelsea appear to have stalled. The attacking midfielder, who is under contract until the summer of 2024, would believe he deserves a higher salary than the Blues are willing to offer him. His situation generates rumors of a future departure. Especially since the player is no longer an indisputable holder under the orders of Graham Potter.
Among the suitors, Liverpool would be the most serious. The Reds would see Mason Mount as a perfect match for their game and believe he could be a bargain if Chelsea fail to extend him. Manchester United have reportedly not shown as much interest, although the club are also said to be keen on the England international. The Red Devils would be looking for a number 9 and a right side in priority, which could explain this caution. But the situation could change in the coming months.
Finally, Newcastle, in search of a creative player capable of evolving in several positions, would have recently joined the list of clubs interested in Mount. The 24-year-old midfielder would fit the criteria sought by the Magpies, who have notably targeted James Maddison (Leicester), Jack Harrison (Leeds United) and Christian Pulisic (Chelsea) in the past.
The future of Mason Mount is not yet decided. It certainly depends on the Blues wanting to keep him.
