According to The Daily Mail, the teenage star is being courted by Liverpool, Manchester United, and Newcastle.

Since joining Chelsea at age six, Mount has made 192 outings for the Blues, contributing 37 assists and 33 goals. Additionally, he has 36 starts and 5 goals for the England national team. The 24-year-decision old’s to stay at Chelsea or transfer to another Premier League team in the summer is still up in the air.
