WHAT HAPPENED? Amid transfer speculation linking him away from Stamford Bridge, Mount has appointed Neil Fewings as his new agent, Fabrizio Romano reports. Liverpool, Manchester United and Newcastle have all been linked with a move for the 24-year-old who may be sold to reduce Chelsea's increasingly bloated squad.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The likelihood of Mount leaving Chelsea this summer has now been rated as 'very likely', as contract negotiations at Stamford Bridge continue to stall - a process Graham Potter has repeatedly described as "complicated." The midfielder is entering the final 18 months of his current deal, and this may prompt the Blues to move him on in the summer, rather than risk losing him for free in 2024.
AND WHAT'S MORE: Mount has pulled out of the England's squad for the Euro 2024 qualification matches against Italy and Ukraine after missing Chelsea's last four games with a pelvic issue.
