Versatile 23-year-old is most valuable Chelsea player according to study

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount has the highest market value at the club and is one of the only two Blues players in the top 10 in the Premier League, according to CIES Football Observatory.

The Switzerland-based research group published their list of top 100 players in Europe in terms of transfer values.

CIES’ statistical model uses a number of variables, including players’ ages, contract durations, and obviously sporting performance on the pitch.

Mount, who recently won back-to-back Chelsea player of the season awards, is claimed to be the most valuable player at Chelsea, valued at €100.3million (£85.6m).

This puts the England international as the sixth highest-valued player in the Premier League and 14th in Europe.

Kai Havertz, valued at €93.6m (£79.9m) is the only other Chelsea player to make the top 10 in the Premier League at ninth place.

Reece James (£70.4m), Romelu Lukaku (£58.7m), Timo Werner (£48m), and Christian Pulisic (£45.2m) also make Europe’s top 100.

Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe, who recently signed a new deal with the club, unsurprisingly tops the list in Europe, while Manchester City’s new signing, Erling Haaland, leads in the Premier League.

Mount, in particular, could see his market value rise even more very soon by extending his current contract, which expires in 2024.

Recently, Fabrizio Romano claims that Chelsea are planning to hold talks with the versatile midfielder over a new contract.
