The 23-year-old, who is believed to be earning around £80,000 per week, will see his current deal at Stamford Bridge expire in June 2024.
The Blues are currently unable to sign players or negotiate new contracts due to the sanctions imposed on owner Roman Abramovich, but with the Premier League having now approved the takeover by Todd Boehly, these restrictions are soon to be lifted.
According to the i, Chelsea are keen to tie Mount down to a new long-term contract, offering him a significant pay rise which reflects his value as an important first-team player.
The report adds that Mount – who has been linked with both Liverpool and Manchester City – would earn more than double what he currently pockets each week with the Blues should he agree to a new deal.
The England international has been a key cog in Thomas Tuchel's machine in 2021-22, scoring 13 goals and providing 16 assists in 53 appearances across all competitions. body check tags ::
