Liverpool target Mason Mount is no closer to signing a new contract with Chelsea, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
The journalist claims there is a “big gap” between the two sides, and the chances of the player leaving Stamford Bridge this summer are increasing:
There’s still big gap in the negotiations between Chelsea and Mason Mount, as new deal is again far from being agreed 🚨🔵 #CFC
No final decision yet but chances of MM leaving Chelsea are increasing — Mount will be on the market if new deal is not agreed before the summer. pic.twitter.com/FQySU5gxh9

Manchester City, Manchester United and Newcastle are also said to be keeping tabs on Mount’s situation but it has been reported that the midfielder would favour a move to Anfield if he does leave the Blues at the end of the season.
It should be pointed out that the 24-year-old’s preference would be to remain at Chelsea, but it appears a sale will be considered by the club if he doesn’t put pen to paper on a new deal.
Mount is said to be earning around £80,000 a week but, with the likes of Raheem Sterling earning four times that, it’s understandable why the player is holding out for a better offer.
