In an eventful turn of events, Arsenal are now interested in signing Mason Mount from Chelsea this summer. Arsenal want to secure him before he signs his new contract. He will be available for cheap this summer if he doesn’t extent his contract.

Mason Mount heavily interested in move to Arsenal

According to Goal, Arsenal have held talks with the Chelsea player with a view to a move this summer. Mount is known to be best friends with Arsenal’s top summer transfer target – Declan Rice. They hope this move could well help the Gunners capture Rice’s signature too.

One has to imagine that a move to the Emirates would be more alluring than a move to Anfield this summer. After all, Arsenal are set to have Champions League football next season. Mount is likely to want to stay in London having spent the vast majority of his life there.

Where Mount fits into this Arsenal team is unknown. He may not be defensively sound enough to fit into Granit Xhaka’s role. One would imagine that both Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Martinelli would be favoured in the attacking midfield spots that Mount can also occupy.

Arsenal are looking to add homegrown talents to their squad. Declan Rice and Mason Mount seems to be on their way. Regardless, it looks as though Arsenal are well and truly in this race. Mikel Arteta appears to be very serious about improving his midfield in this upcoming transfer window with both Mount and Rice linked.

Chelsea are in no rush to let the player leave. With the contract talks hitting a speed bump as of late. Liverpool won’t give up this transfer battle without a fight. Mason Mount would be a talent that would fit to any club. However, this is the best time to move in for a player like him. With contract talks on hold he is available for cheap than usual.
