€60 million midfielder Mason Mount could be on his way to a big club. He could be on his way to Arsenal along with Rice. He is also heavily linked with Liverpool. Mount, 24, will be out of contract at Stamford Bridge next summer. After rejecting Chelsea’s renewal offers, appears on course to move clubs this summer.
€60 million midfielder Mason Mount the new talking point
Liverpool have been the club to be most heavily linked with signing Mason Mount. According to a recent report from GOAL, Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal are also discussing a potential summer deal.
It is an open secret that Liverpool are looking to revamp their engine room for next season and have been linked with several targets ahead of the summer window.
The pair enjoyed a strong partnership during Jorginho’s time at Chelsea, with both players starting for the Blues in their famous Champions League final victory over Manchester City back in the summer of 2021. Mount went on to send a message to Jorginho via Instagram shortly after his move to Arsenal was confirmed. He posted a photo of them together alongside the caption: “Gonna miss you Papai.”
It is going to be interesting to see who will win the race to sign Mount. If both Liverpool and Arsenal decide to formalise their interest in signing the midfielder at the end of this season.
Mount last signed a new contract in 2019 when Roman Abramovich was the owner and the change doesn’t affect his current salary, but it may impact future offers. Chelsea have shown reluctance to increase their most recent £200k-a-week bid and there is very little likelihood the club will meet his demand.
Mount has scored just three goals and provided two assists in 24 Premier League appearances this season. But has started just one of Chelsea’s last 10 top-flight matches. He has only just fully returned from a pelvic injury problem and could be back in Frank Lampard’s starting XI for their game against Brentford next week.
