Chelsea loanee Mason Mount is reportedly a target for Bournemouth next season.
The 20-year-old is currently enjoying his season-long spell away at Championship club Derby County, where he’s been an important player for Frank Lampard’s side.
He’s scored six goals and supplied three assists in just 32 games, with many comparing the midfielder to Lampard as a player.
Mount will return to Stamford Bridge in the summer and interest could surface from Premier League clubs.
According to the Sun, Bournemouth will lead the hunt to try sign the English playmaker on loan for next season.
The report details that top-flight clubs will be keen on landing him on a temporary basis next year and the youngster will want regular first-team action somewhere.
Mount has been called up to the senior England squad in the past without earning his first cap, but is a major talent with great potential.
Chelsea should be looking to keep the central midfielder around the club amid the looming transfer ban, as he could force his way into Maurizio Sarri’s squad.
He is a goalscoring central midfielder that has thrived during loans with Vitesse Arnhem and now Derby, which is why throwing him into the senior squad with the Blues next year could be a risk worth taking.
But on the flip side if regular chances aren’t guaranteed, Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth should be an attractive loan option for most youngsters.
