Mason Mount apparently has plenty of admirers from across the Premier League.

According to transfer insider Simon Phillips, a whole host of English clubs are waiting to see what unfolds between the 23-year-old and Chelsea.

Mount has a target on his back due to the fact there is some uncertainty of his contract situation.

The England international’s deal does not expire until 2024, but Todd Boehly is seemingly eager to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge even further.

Boehly appears intent on keeping hold of the very core that makes up Chelsea’s existence, by tempting those forged in the academy with new contracts.

Reece James, Armando Broja and Trevoh Chalobah have already renewed their allegiance until 2028.

In order to continue the cycle, Boehly must persuade Mount to join his fellow Cobham graduates in the 2028 gang.

Whilst there is strong suggestions that the forward will agree to fresh terms, certain doubt still lingers.

Until he and Boehly come to an agreement, those said to be interested in the Chelsea player will continue to circle Stamford Bridge.

“There are a lot of English clubs watching this situation. Liverpool, I know to be one of them. They’re keeping an eye on it. If it’s not going to be signed, they’re going to be there waiting,” claimed Phillips.

Liverpool have been linked with Mount in the past, although the number 19 reportedly has no plans to join the Reds.

Phillips may not have named the other Premier League sides, but it’s pretty safe to assume many of the big hitters will be keeping an eye on Chelsea’s golden boy.
