Chelsea have stepped up contract talks with Mason Mount amid interest from Liverpool, according to The Guardian via Sky Sports.
The 24 year old, who has just 18 months left on his Chelsea contract, is also attracting interest from Italian side Juventus.
Chelsea are reportedly yet to meet Mount’s wage demands with Liverpool prepared to act on their interest in the England international if there is no resolution in talks.
Mount, who has been at Chelsea since the age of six, is popular with supporters and has been one of the team’s best performers since breaking into the squad in 2019.
Mount currently earns around £75,000-a-week and is one of the lower earners at the club. He wants Chelsea to prove they value him by meeting his wage demands.
