THE BIGGER PICTURE: His exploits at Craven Cottage have impressed west London neighbours at Stamford Bridge, with Chelsea bracing themselves for the possible summer departure of England international Mount – with the 24-year-old yet to sign a contract extension amid links to Liverpool and Manchester United.

WHAT NEXT? Pereira has registered three goals and six assists for Fulham this season and is said to be valued at between £25 million ($31m) and £35m ($43m) – with the £15m ($18m) relegation release clause that exists in his contract unlikely to come into effect this season as the Cottagers sit ninth in the Premier League table.
