Liverpool are ready to intensify their pursuit of Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount.
Amid talk of Liverpool being priced out of a deal for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham, Mount has emerged as a priority target.
Football.London says thus far Mount and Chelsea have been unable to agree fresh terms with a reported price tag of £70million set on him. He has just over a year to run on his current deal.
And Liverpool are ready to step up their plans for England international.
Mount, at 24, suits Liverpool plans as they seek to drive down the average age of their midfield.
