Chelsea appears to have made one last ditch effort to tie down Mason Mount to a new deal, according to 90min. The Blues face losing the England international this summer when his current deal expires.
The news could come as a blow for Liverpool, as the Reds appeared to be leading the queue to sign the talented attacking midfielder.
Liverpool transfer blow
Chelsea’s optimism of striking a deal with Mount would come as a massive blow for Liverpool, who earlier this week revealed that they wouldn’t be making a move for Jude Bellingham.
Reports have claimed that Mount’s final decision could come close to the expiry of his contract, as he plans to wait to see who the next manager of the club is. The 24-year-old has played a bit-part role this term, but he has still scored three goals in 23 Premier League outings.
