Chelsea haven’t lost trying on persuading £80 million star Mason Mount to sign a new contract at Stamford Bridge, according to CBS reporter Ben Jacobs, who spoke to GIVEMESPORT.
The offensive midfielder’s current contract expires at the end of the season, and he’s been linked to several Premier League teams.

According to Jacobs, Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly has informed Mount personally that he wants him to stay at the West London club.
As his contract expires, the 24-year-old is said to be a big target for Liverpool, with the dependable Fabrizio Romano stating that he’s a priority at Anfield.
Mount has also been linked with a move to Newcastle United, although a move to St James’ Park currently appears exceedingly doubtful.
The Magpies have been put off after learning that the Englishman will cost £80 million this summer, according to the MailOnline.
What did Ben Jacobs have to say about Mason Mount and Chelsea?
Mount might yet wind up staying at Chelsea, according to Jacobs, if he signs a short-term contract.
“We’ll have to wait and see because Chelsea might find a halfway house,” the journalist remarked. They may discover a means to extend in the short term to purchase more time in the long run.”In the end, they could just make a deal with Mount. So Chelsea hasn’t given up, Mount hasn’t made a decision, and that’s the truth of the issue.”
