Mount update, Lindstrom “keen” & Fabinho praises Trent – Latest LFC News

Thursday’s news update includes yet more indications that Mason Mount could join Liverpool this summer, as well as links to players across Europe and discussion about Trent Alexander-Arnold‘s new role.


Mount “increasingly likely” to join Liverpool

Speculation around the potential signing of Mount shows no sign of easing, with the Reds said to be “leading” the race for the midfielder’s signature.

There have been no shortage of stories linking the 24-year-old with a switch to Merseyside and reports in the Guardian have indicated that Liverpool have held “productive” talks regarding a potential move.

Chelsea are likely to let a number of senior players leave this summer in order to balance the books and meet FFP requirements and Mount looks to be on Liverpool’s radar as they look to replenish the midfield area.

Mount’s contract will expire in the summer of 2024, giving Liverpool a strong hand when it comes to negotiating a price for the England international.

Match of the night is Sevilla vs. Man United.

This Europa League second leg should be an intriguing one after the Spanish side unexpectedly came from behind against Erik ten Hag’s team last week.

Naturally, we’re backing Sevilla this evening as we have no interest in seeing Man United lift another European trophy!
