Graham Potter is hoping for a quick resolution to talks around Mason Mount’s Chelsea future, although he acknowledged the situation is “complicated”.
Mount’s contract at Stamford Bridge is due to expire at the end of the 2023-24 season, and reports suggest progress has stalled in discussions between Mount and Chelsea over a new deal.
Premier League rivals Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool have been credited with an interest in Mount should he decide against staying at Stamford Bridge.
The midfielder would be a big miss for Chelsea, having scored three goals and assisted three more in all competitions this season.
Only Raheem Sterling (nine) and Kai Havertz (seven) have been involved in more goals for a profligate Chelsea side.
“It is always complicated,” Potter said of Mount’s future. “There’s always negotiations.

“It is best to leave it between Mason and the club. It is the best way for that to be dealt with.
“He has been fantastic to work with, an important player. Of course, I hope it gets resolved quickly.”
