Liverpool are desperately trying to land Mason Mount from Chelsea, according to SportsMail.
Mount has been locked in contract talks with the Blues, but there has been an impasse in negotiations.
This has thrown the midfielder’s future at Stamford Bridge in doubt.
Mount is believed to want to treble his £80,000-a-week wages and has 18 months left on his current deal at Stamford Bridge.
This could force the Blues into a decision this summer.
Some Chelsea officials have reportedly become resigned to the midfielder not extending his contract.
Liverpool could take advantage of the situation with the Reds having had a long-standing interest in the 24-year-old.
