Jamie Carragher lists five reasons why Liverpool should sign Mason Mount



Jamie Carragher lists five reasons why Liverpool should sign Mason Mount

Jamie Carragher has backed the idea of Liverpool making a move to sign Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount this summer.

Mount, who has one year remaining on his contract, is high on Liverpool’s list of midfield targets and could be sold by his current employers as they look to free up funds and cut their bloated squad.

A latest report on the situation has suggested there is ‘significant doubt’ over whether the Londoners can revive contract talks with the 24-year-old after previous attempts to secure his long-term future. Manchester United are now rumoured to have launched a £55m bid for Mount – with Chelsea apparently valuing their man at £85m.

Offering his take on why pursuing Mount would make sense, and why he doesn’t understand the negativity of some in relation to the England international, Carragher told The Anfield Wrap: “Mason Mount is a funny one, in that people always seem a little bit down on him for whatever reason. I’ve never got it, I’m a huge fan.

“He’s a Champions League winner. I really like him. He’s got energy to press, he’d provide a greater goal threat from midfield than we have from Jordan [Henderson] in that position right now. Every top manager who’s been at Chelsea has picked him. he plays for England and I think the club have also got to be thinking about that homegrown situation.”

Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister is another Premier League player of interest to the Reds, though Jurgen Klopp’s side may have to fend off Manchester City and United to strike a deal for the Argentine. Though enthused by the prospect of the World Cup winner joining the club, Carragher admitted he believes a deep-lying midfielder should also be targeted.

“If we brought Mac Allister and Mason Mount in, I’d be delighted with that. I definitely want us to bring a defensive midfield player in as well, because Mount and Mac Allister are more offensive midfield players,” he said.

“I don’t think our problem is going forward, our problem is defensively. If we’re gonna get back to where we wanna be, which is challenging Manchester City and challenging for big trophies, we’ve got to sort ourselves out defensively because that’s been the biggest problem this season.”
