Mason Mount, 23, has played a significant role at Stamford Bridge recently and has twice been named Chelsea’s player of the year.
The offensive midfielder will, however, be making a fresh start and will try to win over a new manager in the Blues‘ coaching staff.
Journalist Dean Jones claims that he’s already got an admirer in Potter.
When discussing Mount, Jones told GIVEMESPORT that Graham Potter was a great fan of his. If Mason Mount were about to sign a new contract, I wouldn’t be surprised in the least.
This season, Mount hasn’t quite been performing at his normal level; in seven games, he hasn’t scored or provided an assist. It will be intriguing to see if he begins on Wednesday night.
Potter has only had a few days to get used to his new position as Chelsea’s manager, and he will be in charge for the first time tonight when Chelsea hosts Red Bull Salzburg in a Champions League group stage encounter.
It’s hardly surprising if Mount makes a positive impression on Potter because he was a trusted advisor for Thomas Tuchel and Frank Lampard, the teams’ previous managers.
His enthusiasm, tactical ability, and quality ought to offer him a strong chance to play a vital role for the next coach.
According to reports, Chelsea is prepared to provide Mount a new, better contract after teammate Reece James recently extended his contract with the club.
In recent seasons, the aforementioned pair have been two of the team’s standout performers.
It’s great to know that they will both need to step up their performances to win over the new coach.
