the UFABET report revealed in April that Chelsea were confident that the imminent arrival of Pochettino would impress Mount. And boost their chances of reaching an agreement over fresh terms. And sources have confirmed that their optimism remains.
Pochettino is understood to be a huge fan of Mount and has made it abundantly clear to Chelsea. That he wants to see a new contract handed to the academy graduate, and the Blues are ready for a fresh round of negotiations in the coming weeks.
Mount has held positive, informal talks with Chelsea, including co-owner Todd Boehly, in recent weeks, which has boosted the club’s hopes that an extension will soon be agreed.
