Liverpool continue to be linked to Chelsea star as contract dispute goes on

Mason Mount still hasn’t signed a new contact at Chelsea, and the chatter is warming up about a potential move away.

Caughtoffside have a whole piece with agent Haydn Dodge where he discusses a possible move to Liverpool, who are desperate for a new midfielder

We don’t actually have any evidence that there’s a contract dispute of any kind going on between Chelsea and Mount, we just haven’t heard many positive updates in a while, and that’s bound to make people a little uncomfortable.

The story here is mainly based on assumptions – that Mount would want to go to Liverpool, and that he’s the “kind of player” who Jurgen Klopp would like in his team.

We don’t disagree with any of that logic, but it shouldn’t be forgotten that Mount has been brilliant for Chelsea, and the new owners haven’t spent hundreds of millions just to sky and save money on a contract for a home grown star.

We’re still very confident progress will be made now we’re out of January.
