CHELSEA will listen to offers for Mason Mount at the end of the season, sources have told Football Insider.

Mount has become one of the most important players at Stamford Bridge over the past few seasons and is a man that Graham Potter can totally rely on

But Mount’s current stint with the Blues ends in 2024 and there has been some speculation in the media that the club are having complications on agreeing a new contract with the midfielder.

According to recent reports, the Blues offered a new deal to Mount, which the midfielder rejected because the wages offered to him were lower as compared to some of the new recruits.

It has been claimed that the midfielder wants to be put on the kind of wages that the likes of Kai Havertz, Thiago Silva and Kalidou Koulibaly are all reportedly on at the club, but Chelsea do not want to pay him such an amount of cash.

And according to reports on the Football Inisider website, Chelsea have now made the decision to allow Mount, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Hakim Ziyech, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Conor Gallagher all to leave at the end of the season.

Aubameyang, Loftus-Cheek, Ziyech and Gallagher were all available for transfer in the January window and will be offered to clubs again at the end of this season.

CHELSEA have a number of players in the squad that are good, but not quite up to the standard that the club need right now and will need to offload in order to claw back some of that £600 million they have spent over the last few transfer windows.

If the reports are true and Mount is a player that the club are looking to offload in the next couple of windows, it will be interesting to see where he ends up as there are quite a few clubs that are interested in a potential deal.
