Liverpool’s Potential Transfer Targets: Maddison and Mount
As the summer transfer window approaches, Liverpool is reportedly keeping a close eye on Chelsea’s Mason Mount and Leicester’s James Maddison. The club’s interest in these players has been confirmed by journalist Ben Jacobs, who suggests that if Liverpool fails to secure Mount, Maddison could be their next target.

Mount has been a long-standing target for Liverpool, but the club faces stiff competition for the England international. Manchester United and Arsenal have also shown interest in the player. However, if Liverpool misses out on Mount, they could turn their attention to Maddison, who has been a standout player for Leicester, even in a challenging season.
According to Jacobs, Leicester may be willing to let Maddison go for around £40m, especially if they face relegation. Other Premier League clubs are also monitoring Maddison’s situation. The journalist shared his insights on Twitter, stating, “Clubs looking at Mason Mount could turn more seriously to Maddison if they fail to land the Chelsea midfielder.“
Maddison is expected to attract significant interest from other clubs, with Tottenham and Newcastle currently leading the race. However, Liverpool could potentially sway him with their offer. The club is set to undergo a transition period in the summer, with manager Jurgen Klopp looking to bolster his midfield options.
The question now is, who is willing to pay the money, and where does Maddison see his future? Only time will tell.
