Chelsea's Mason Mount is open to a reunion with Thomas Tuchel at Bayern Munich, according to reports. The England star is out of contract in 2024 and has been linked with a host of clubs in the Premier League and across Europe.
Mount was a regular under Tuchel during the German's 18 months in west London. He played a big part in the Blues winning their second Champions League trophy in May 2021.
Tuchel was only appointed Bayern boss last week, replacing the sacked Julian Nagelsmann. He has been linked with taking several Chelsea Players with him to the Allianz Arena.
Mount is the latest to be rumoured with a move to the Bundesliga giants. And the Guardian claims he would be open to joining Bayern.
Liverpool are thought to be favourites to sign Mount, while Manchester United are also keeping an eye on his situation. But the arrival of Tuchel at Bayern has opened up a new opportunity for the 24-year-old.
Mount came through the academy at Chelsea and has been a regular since returning from a loan spell at Derby County. However, he has been unable to agree on a new contract at Stamford Bridge.
Mount wants to be paid in line with some of the top earners at the club. He is currently one of the lowest-paid Players in Graham Potter's squad.
Chelsea do not want to let his contract down with the risk of losing him for free at the end of next season. Therefore, they may be forced to cash in on him this summer.
Mount is back in training after an injury which kept him out of action before the international break. Potter discussed the player's future earlier this month, insisting he didn't have much say on the situation.
Potter said: "Ultimately it is between the club and Mason. I have spoken to him numerous times about his situation, football and life generally.
"My feelings for Mason are clear. He is a fantastic person firstly but sometimes these things happen.
"They are just complicated and it is best that I speak little about it, let them get on with it in deciding what is right for both parties. I am not naive.
"I know it is an important time for him and an important contract. These things have to be right for him and his family. It’s important he makes a decision on that basis."
