have been urged to sign and one of his team-mates by former Premier League goalkeeper Brad Friedel.
’s side have expressed interest in signing England midfielder Mount, who has been at Stamford Bridge since the age of six.
The 23-year-old has made more than 150 appearances for Chelsea and helped the Blues win the Champions League, Club World Cup and Super Cup under former manager Thomas Tuchel.
Mount’s current contract expires in the summer of 2024 and talks over a new deal have stalled, .
Friedel insists Mount is an ‘exceptional player’ and says he would be a ‘good signing’ for Liverpool.
Mount is currently in Qatar with the England squad preparing for the 2022 World Cup. The Three Lions kick-start their campaign on Monday against Iran.
‘Mason Mount is an exceptional player but the only time it would be a no-brainer for Jurgen Klopp is if it works financially for Chelsea and Liverpool,’ Friedel told .
‘The player has to want to make the move and the rumour that Klopp wants him has to be true.
‘I think these moves for players, as good as Mount is, only work if everyone is in agreement for it. But it’s clear he’s a very good player and he’d be a good signing for Liverpool.’
Friedel – who played for Premier League clubs Liverpool, Blackburn, Aston Villa and Tottenham – also believes Klopp should consider signing Mount’s Chelsea team-mate N’Golo Kante on a free transfer.
France World Cup winner Kante is coming towards the end of his contract at Stamford Bridge and could be a perfect alternative to the likes of Frenkie de Jong and Jude Bellingham, according to Friedel.
He added: ‘I know deals for Frenkie de Jong and Jude Bellingham may be in talks, but if a player like N’Golo Kante comes along on a free then he’s going to have to play.
‘Kante is really good, there’s been some injury issues, sure, but he’s outstanding.
‘Klopp knows better than me but I think Kante will have a lot of interested clubs and he’d be an incredible signing for any of them, including Liverpool.
‘With regards to Bellingham, this kid has had such an incredible career in front of him and that will come down for the money. I’m so excited to see him at the World Cup.’
