Jurgen Klopp is set to oversee a midfield rebuild this summer, with a litany of midfield targets linked to Liverpool as the summer transfer window approaches.

James Milner, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are all set to depart the club as their contracts come to an end.

Mason Mount is one of the most high-profile players linked with a summer move to Liverpool.

Alex Crook, reporting for talkSPORT, writes that Liverpool are becoming increasingly confident of signing Mount.

Contract renewal talks between Mount and Chelsea have stalled over wages and are set to recommence in the summer.

The report states that Liverpool see the 24-year-old Englishman as the ideal fit to come into the club as one of the main pieces of a new-look midfield.

If Chelsea cannot convince Mount to sign a new deal in the summer, it is likely that they will look to cash in as the midfielder will then only have one year left on his deal with the Blues.
