In the wake of Liverpool’s U-turn in their interest in Bellingham, Mason Mount has emerged as the club’s new “No. 1 priority.”

That is according to‘s Bobby Vincent, who also claims that there is “serious interest” in Mount’s team-mate Conor Gallagher.

It is, of course, not the first time that Mount and Gallagher have been touted with moves to Anfield, but it is clear that Liverpool have reshuffled their list.

Beyond the Chelsea pair, Merseyside journalists have widely reported interest in Brighton duo Moises Caicedo and Alexis Mac Allister, Wolves‘ Matheus Nunes and Bayern Munich’s Ryan Gravenberch.

GOAL‘s Neil Jones has also named Nicolo Barella (Inter Milan), Teun Koopmeiners (Atalanta) and Luka Sucic (Salzburg) as options.

The Mail‘s Dominic King has also reiterated interest in Joao Palhinha of Fulham, while the Liverpool Echo‘s Ian Doyle has linked Bristol City youngster Alex Scott.
