Bayern Munich are interested in Mason Mount, according to Sports Mole via TZ. The Englishman has been one of Thomas Tuchel’s most important players at Chelsea.

However, Mount is one of the lowest earners at Stamford Bridge, and is seeking a better contract. The Blues want to keep the player at the club, and are preparing to offer him an improved deal. The Bavarians are keeping a close eye on the situation.

Mount rose through the ranks at Chelsea before breaking into the first team in 2019. The Englishman has been a regular for The Blues since then, and has already racked up 121 appearances for the London side. He is tied with Chelsea until the summer of 2024. However, Mount believes his current contract does not justify his importance to the team.

The Blues are willing to oblige, and are likely to present the Englishman with a new contract with a significant salary hike. However, should contract talks not progress well, Bayern Munich could attempt to prise Mount away from Chelsea. The 22-year-old is currently valued at €75 million.

That price tag is unlikely to change unless the Englishman fails to agree a new deal with The Blues before the start of 2023.

Recent reports claim Mount is happy at Stamford Bridge. However, the player is generating attention from Liverpool and Real Madrid, who could rival the Bavarians for the Englishman’s services.
