Chelsea are now working on a new contract offer for Mason Mount that would double his wages, MySportDab reports.
Mount is a product of Chelsea’s youth academy, and he became a key first-team player under Frank Lampard during the 2019-20 season.
He is still an important player for Chelsea under new Coach Thomas Tuchel.
MySportDab understands that Mount currently earns around £75,000-per-week at Stamford Bridge, which is low compared to other players in the team.
According to Goal, Chelsea are preparing new contract talks with the England midfielder to offer him a new massive wage rise.
There is currently no offer yet from Chelsea as they are still working on new contracts for Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen and Trevoh Chalobah.
Mount is passionate about Chelsea and would happily commit his future to the Premier League club.
However, he wants to earn as much as the likes of Kai Havertz and Timo Werner.
Havertz earns around £150,000-a-week, while Werner is paid £250,000-a-week.
Mount has played 116 matches for Chelsea so far in his promising career, with 17 goals and 16 assists.
He assisted Havertz Match winning goal in last season’s Champions League Final against Manchester City.
Mount’s form earned him Chelsea’s Player of the Year prize last season.
Mount is also a key part of the England national team for Gareth Southgate and played at last summer’s Euro 2020.
Last week, Mount was nominated among 30 others for the 2021 Ballon D’or Award.
On his Ballon d’Or nomination, Mount said: ‘When growing up, you look at the Ballon D’or and see it so far at the top.
‘To be among the top 30 in the world right now is a dream come true for me and it’s special to be alongside players I’ve looked up to as a child. It shows you can’t stop working hard.’
