Arsenal and Liverpool are preparing offers for Mason Mount as uncertainty about his Chelsea future continues.

According to Football Insider, Arsenal and Liverpool are set to prepare offers for Mason Mount. The 24-year-old Chelsea star’s future remains uncertain, with the club likely to sell if they cannot agree on a contract extension with the England international.

The Mason Mount situation could settle one way or another in the summer. The 24-year-old Chelsea star remains on the sidelines with plenty of uncertainty brewing in the background regarding his future. The attacking midfielder has not agreed on a new deal and looks far away from anything imminent.

The issue is with his wage demands, as previous reports indicated Mount wanted the club to keep him on par with fellow teammate Reece James. While Chelsea reportedly refused to meet those demands, they also wanted the 24-year-old to sign a longer contract, something the player was not keen on.

Even if recent suggestions about Chelsea looking to offer a shorter contract are true, the heavy interest from rivals may have already turned Mount’s head. Going by how the Blues have been performing, they will miss out on European football altogether. So the player could have a chance to play that elsewhere.

Key interested parties, Arsenal and Liverpool, are reportedly preparing offers for Mount. Chelsea’s financial standing may force them to sell quite a few players from their squad. And suggestions of homegrown or academy stars leaving remain rife.

Multiple sources confirmed Arsenal’s interest, and Mikel Arteta reportedly likes the idea of Mount in his team. The Gunners are looking for a new attacking midfielder to add to their squad. And bringing in an England international will elevate the quality.

Arsenal could launch a move for the 24-year-old Chelsea homegrown star if a deal could seem possible. With a year left and the desperate need to raise funds, Arteta could urge the club to seize the opportunity ahead of their other rivals, Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp remains intent to strengthen and revamp his midfield in the summer. Liverpool were considered the front-runners for Mount’s signature, and many had suggested the player might open the doors about joining them. The Reds have growing optimism about concluding a deal, but much will depend on the money on offer.

Liverpool want to bring in several midfielders. So Klopp will have eyes on the budgets. They might have a value for Mount. But if Chelsea demand exponentially more, it could brew trouble for the Reds.

The future of the 24-year-old Chelsea homegrown star will get clearer in the coming weeks. A decision could materialise in the summer. But there is no clear indication that Chelsea will fight those rivals to keep Mount at Stamford Bridge. There is plenty of hope for Arsenal or Liverpool in this pursuit.
