According to Football.London, Chelsea are currently facing a significant predicament concerning the future of Mason Mount at Stamford Bridge. Negotiations for a new contract are ongoing, but the club has not agreed with the English international, with Mount’s current deal set to expire in 2024.

Mount’s Struggling Campaign With Chelsea So Far This Season

Although Mount has not performed at his best this season, his representatives believe he should be compensated similarly to some of Chelsea’s top earners, given his exceptional performances over the past few years.

This season has been challenging for Mount, as he has struggled to maintain consistency in his contributions for the West London club in the final third. Despite participating in 32 matches for the Blues and netting three goals while providing three assists across various competitions, he still deserves recognition for his performance metrics. Mount has averaged 1.4 tackles, 1.4 shots, 1.3 key passes, and 0.7 dribbles per 90 minutes in Premier League football. He has also been accurate when distributing the ball on the attacking end of the field, with a pass success rate of 80.3% in the English top flight (statistics provided by whoscored).

Is It Wise for Boehly to Allow His Departure in the Upcoming Summer Transfer Window?

Mason Mount can disrupt the opposition’s midfield play with a few well-timed tackles. The English attacking midfielder can also complete some dangerous runs with the ball in the final third. He is also a precise ball passer, although he needs to improve his goal and assist contributions to achieve success at the highest level. While he primarily operates as an attacking midfielder, he can adapt to a wider role if required.

Chelsea aim to secure Mason Mount’s services for a lengthy seven-year contract, but his representatives prefer a shorter agreement to maintain negotiation flexibility in the future. Liverpool and their manager, Jurgen Klopp, greatly admire the English midfielder and perceive this summer as a chance to acquire him at a lower price point due to his contract predicament.

When Mount is confident, he possesses the vision to create several clear-cut scoring opportunities for his fellow attackers. At 24, he has room for growth and development over the next few seasons. Boehly should contemplate offering him a new contract at Stamford Bridge before the summer transfer window to prevent losing him for a lower transfer fee.
