Mason Mount set for fresh Chelsea contract talks amid Liverpool transfer links

Chelsea are ready to re-open contract talks with midfielder Mason Mount in January after reports emerged linking him with a move to Liverpool.

Mount, who started in a midfield three for England at the World Cup on Monday, has seen talks stall with the London club - reportedly due to wage demands.

Liverpool are eyeing a midfield rebuild in the coming transfer windows and could see the chance to sign the 23-year-old as an opportunity they cannot pass up with his contract expiring in 2024.

Chelsea are keen to extend the deal of Mount, but the England international is said to want to be among the top earners at Stamford Bridge.

According to the Guardian, Liverpool are keeping tabs on Mount's contract situation and could make a move if the midfielder becomes available for transfer.

But a new report by TEAMTalk makes clear that Chelsea remain confident of keeping their Academy graduate and that talks over a new deal will resume in January.

After an impressive performance during England's 6-2 win over Iran in the World Cup, Mount is set to keep his place in midfield when the Three Lions take on USA on Friday night.
