Liverpool are reportedly keen on signing Chelsea star Mason Mount this summer – and they could have a secret weapon to convince him to move to Anfield.

The England international has a contract at Stamford Bridge that runs until 2024, but there has been increasing speculation over his future in recent weeks.

Fabrizio Romano claimed earlier this week that a new deal is ‘far from being agreed’ with Chelsea, and it is increasingly likely that the 24-year-old will leave the club in the summer.

Liverpool have been tipped as potential suitors for Mount, with Jurgen Klopp looking to add new faces to his midfield this summer.

Football Insider claim that the Reds are in ‘pole position’ to sign the midfielder, who was named in Gareth Southgate’s latest England squad before withdrawing due to injury.

Mount would be an ideal signing for Liverpool due to his attacking threat and off-the-ball movement. He was directly involved in 29 goals for Chelsea last season, scoring 11 times in the Premier League.

And a new development has given the Reds even more impetus to seal a deal.

Liverpool have secret weapon in Mount chase

Romano reported on Saturday that Mount has appointed Neil Fewings as his new agent, adding that it is now ‘very likely’ that the midfielder leaves Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Fewings, who works for the football agency ROOF, has a number of clients on his books – and a number of them are more intriguing than others in this particular case.

He represents Liverpool stars Harvey Elliott, Naby Keita and Virgil van Dijk, as well as ex-Reds star Sadio Mane, as per Transfermarkt.

But perhaps the most significant link is to that of Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, who ROOF also represent.

Speaking to ESPN (via Liverpool Echo) in 2019, Van Dijk confirmed that Henderson had pushed for his signing at Anfield from Southampton in 2018.

And the England international, who plays alongside Mount for the Three Lions, could do the same in order to convince Liverpool to sign Mount ahead of other clubs.

It could be, therefore, that the pair are playing together at club level next season – and Henderson may have a role to play in making that happen.
