According to talkSPORT, Chelsea is hoping that the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as manager will convince midfielder Mason Mount to stay at the club. The Blues have resumed contract talks with Mount, who is a transfer target for Arsenal and Liverpool. Talks with Pochettino about being Graham Potter’s long-term successor are at an advanced stage. Mount’s contract with Chelsea expires in 2024, and discussions over a new deal had stalled earlier this year. With Chelsea reluctant to let the 24-year-old enter the final year of his deal, a summer exit looked increasingly likely. However, Chelsea’s co-owner Todd Boehly is determined to keep Mount, who has been at the club for 18 years. Boehly has held face-to-face talks with Mount and hopes that the possible appointment of Pochettino will persuade the player to agree to new terms.
