Mason Mount’s contract talks has been stalled for weeks.
The English midfielder has a little over 12 months remaining on his contract and talks over a contract extension have stalled.
There have been reports of him joining Liverpool in the summer and Chelsea have already started looking at possible replacements for the Chelsea academy graduate.
His former has dropped in the recent campaign but he has been a crucial player for the Blues over the past four seasons.
Arsenal legend Paul Merson believes Boehly should be doing more to keep the 24-year-old instead of letting him leave Stamford Bridge this summer.
‘Mason Mount was by far Chelsea’s best player last season. He was outstanding,’ Merson told Sky Sports.
‘It’s different when you come through the ranks at a football club because you cost nothing. When you get bought for a lot of money you’re viewed as more of an asset.
‘Whoever gets Mason Mount has got the biggest result ever. The kid can play. It’s bad business by Chelsea – they should give him what he’s asking for.
‘Why would you want to chance that if you’re Chelsea? Why would you make them stronger? I’m a huge fan of Mount, he’s a top-class player.
‘He’s not playing at the moment because of his contract situation. With the size of the squad, they aren’t going to pick a player who won’t sign a new contract.’
