Lampard ‘may sway’ Chelsea star to sign for Liverpool this summer

Lampard ‘may sway’ Chelsea star to sign for Liverpool this summer

It has been claimed that Frank Lampard ‘may sway’ Mason Mount to leave Chelsea and sign for Liverpool during this summer’s transfer window.

Mount is out of contract in 2024 and he is yet to commit his future to Chelsea beyond the end of his current deal.

Recent reports have indicated that the England international will be sold if he does not sign a new contract before next season. 

The centre-midfielder is understood to be one of Liverpool’s main targets ahead of this summer, but Arsenal are also being linked with him.

Mount could be at the forefront of Liverpool’s rebuild with the club planning to sign several new players ahead of next season.

Stan Collymore has explained why it ‘would be a step up’ for Mount if he left Chelsea for Liverpool.

‘Are we really reading too much into Mason Mount deleting his Twitter?’ Collymore wrote for Caught Offside.

‘I know that Liverpool have been sniffing around Mason and if you’re putting two and two together and making 22 rather than four, the suggestion could be that he’s going to sign for Liverpool, the deal is already done, and as and when he signs for Liverpool and it becomes a fact on social media, Chelsea fans will have a pop at him.

‘It’s his club and he’s been there a long, long, time. There were rumours that Todd Boehly wanted to give him a new contract but I think that going to Liverpool would be a step up.

‘I think if Chelsea were above them in the table it would still be a step up because going to a club like Liverpool, Man United, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus and AC Milan – they’re once in a lifetime clubs. That’s no disrespect to what Chelsea have achieved.’

Collymore has also claimed that Blues interim boss Lampard could ‘sway’ Mount’s decision over whether he signs for Liverpool.

‘Anfield is dripping with great British football history and it’s a persuasive argument for a young man who’s only known Chelsea to go up north to a former industrial city, a proper footballing city and to find out what it’s like,” Collymore added.

‘Frank Lampard interestingly may have swayed it in his favour, which might sound odd, but if Mount’s advisors say ‘he’s not signing a new contract’ and then he goes to Frank ‘what do you think? Don’t forget Frank Lampard went up to Man City late in his career and enjoyed that experience of being in a different place.’
