A product of Chelsea’s academy, Mount has become a key figure for the club since the 2019/2020 season following successful loan spells.
His contributions helped Chelsea to triumph in the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup in 2021.
He has 33 goals and 37 assists in 195 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea.
Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool have been linked to a potential move for the midfielder, although Chelsea have reportedly set a £85m price tag for him.
Popular football pundit Stan Collymore believes it is an assessment that he does not see a match like Arsenal and Liverpool, and if he leaves for the money, of the aforementioned clubs, Manchester United would be favorites to sign him.
