Mason Mount’s deal with Chelsea expires in the summer of 2024.
The England international’s current deal with Chelsea expires in 2024 and has been linked with several top European clubs including Liverpool.
The Chelsea academy graduate has been strongly linked with the Reds.
The 24-year-old reiterated his desire to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge and wants to sign a five-year contract with the Blues.
On average, the midfielder has played 30 games for the Blues in every campaign since 2019-20.
Talks over a new contract has been stalled and reportedly postponed until the summer.
Ex-Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole believes his former employer should tie him down to a new contract.
Cole told 90min: ‘Mason Mount is probably sitting there thinking: ‘I have performed for this club for three or four years now, I won the Champions League, I’ve been pushed forward in every campaign…’.
‘He’s a leader, he sacrifices himself for the team. He wants to stay at Chelsea, I’m sure he does. I don’t for the life of me understand, and I don’t know the dealings – they’re probably far apart on where they’re valuing each other. He probably thinks: ‘Where do I sit?’.’
