The ever-reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano has shared on Twitter than English midfielder Mason Mount and Chelsea are not close to renewing his contract.

He also noted that there is a growing belief that Mount will leave Chelsea and therefore, he will be leaving West London this summer.

The 24-year-old has been linked to Liverpool since speculation over his contract grew and Jurgen Klopp has been monitoring the situation closely.

Klopp’s hopes of securing Mount has now been heightened due to complications in his contract negotiations with his current club Chelsea.

The hard-working midfielder would be a significant upgrade on their current midfield options, with many also potentially leaving this summer.

A midfield revival may be a turning point for Klopp as he looks to put his team back in the hot seat for Champions League football next term, and Mount may be key to the future success of Liverpool.

This is definitely a story to keep an eye on with both Liverpool and Mount keen on a move.
