Mason Mount’s future must be addressed this summer.
The Chelsea academy graduate has been linked to several clubs in this summer with Liverpool being the firm favourites.
His contract with the Blues expires in the summer of 2024 and Mount has rejected several contract renewal offers.
The 24-year-old has been a mainstay at Chelsea over the last few seasons and has been the club’s Player of the Year during the last two campaigns.
Ex-Chelsea defender Glen Johnson advises Chelsea to not let go Mount below a transfer fee of £100million.
Johnson told Betfred: “The clock is ticking and Chelsea need to be bold regarding the business side of it. This whole situation regarding Mason being linked with a couple of Premier League clubs seems like a bit of a bluff tactic to me.
“In 2024, if Mason’s contract does expire, then he’d probably go to a rival Premier League club on a free anyway. If he doesn’t sign a new deal, then Chelsea may as well bite the bullet and take the money for him because you’d rather sell him for £100m, than see him leave for free. They can’t risk letting him leave for free.”
