A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Goal.com mentioned that Chelsea are set to hold contract talks with Mason Mount. It is understood that the Blues are planning to offer the English midfield ace a pay-rise and secure his long-term future in the process.

Mount’s Outstanding Rise At The English Capital

Mount enjoyed a brilliant campaign at Stamford Bridge recently as he managed to play at a high level in Thomas Tuchel’s first team. The 22-year-old scored nine goals and grabbed nine assists in 54 matches for the Blues last season in multiple competitions. However, the Portsmouth-born sensation has made a slow start to this campaign after going scoreless and securing one assist in nine appearances for the West London outfit so far across all fronts.

Even then, Mount has proven himself to be an influential presence for Chelsea in the opposition half based on his average of 1.0 tackles, 1.7 shots, 1.2 key passes and 0.7 crosses per game in Premier League football.

He has even been excellent when interchanging possession with his teammates in the final third, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 89.6% in the top tier of English football (stats via whoscored).

Chelsea Set To Hold Contract Talks With Mount: Good Move For Both Parties?

Mount is a tidy passer of the ball and has the eye to play a decisive pass in the attacking third of the field. He can strike the ball purely and with a lot of power that makes him such a threat from long range. The 26-time England international can even get stuck in with some solid tackles to make life difficult for the opposition. He is also proficient at whipping in a few dangerous crosses from the wide areas.

Mount has firmly established himself as one of the first names in Thomas Tuchel‘s teamsheet when he is fit and firing on all cylinders. Hence, it makes a lot of sense for the Blues to offer him a new contract.

At 22, the Three Lions star has a very bright future ahead of him. Hence, Mount’s contract extension would be a good move for both the player and the West London club as they look to strive for even more success in the coming seasons.
