Mason Mount, known as Liverpool’s scouting candidate, is pursuing a transfer.
The British media ‘Football Insider’ reported on the 15th (Korean time), “Mount’s father started looking for a new agent to help his son with his future problems.”
Mount is well known for Chelsea’s stellar youth. He started playing for the Chelsea youth team at the age of 6 and earned the full support of Chelsea fans as he progressed to the Chelsea first team.
He had the potential to grow into a top player. Mount heralded a bright future with 13 goals and 16 assists while playing 53 games last season. 메이저사이트
Contrary to expectations, the atmosphere this season is not good. With Chelsea’s slump, Mount’s growth has also slowed. He struggled to secure playing time as he couldn’t melt into Graham Porter’s tactics.
His future at Chelsea was also uncertain. Mount has entered negotiations for a new contract with Chelsea early, ahead of his contract expiring in 2024, but has been unable to bridge the gap on his weekly wage.
There were also reports that negotiations had stalled, with Chelsea offering £180,000 (approximately 286 million won) despite Mount asking for a weekly wage of £240,000.
Among them, finding a new agent has nothing to do with transfer. ‘Football Insider’ said, “The recent movement of the mount side is interpreted as having a transfer in mind.”
Liverpool is mentioned as a likely destination. Liverpool are said to be planning to overhaul their midfield this summer with the signings of Jude Bellingham and Mount.
