The Blues will be forced to transfer players due to their huge spending in the past two windows, which will have them listening to offers for their best players.

One of the possible transfer sagas that could develop this summer is the one involving Mason Mount. The midfielder will run out of contract with Chelsea in 2024, which means this will be the final call for Graham Potter's team to cash in on his potential exit.

With that in mind, the club has tried to extend the player's deal before it is too late for both parties. Unfortunately for Blues' fans, a deal seems to be far away from taking place, and that is why Chelsea have reportedly named their asking price to part ways with him this summer.

A report by the Daily Mail published today reveals that Mount, who turned 24 in January, will be sold by Chelsea for no less than $79M, which may scare away some of the player's suitors. Mount was key to Chelsea's massive 2021, where the Blues won the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup, and the FIFA Club World Cup. In the UCL, Mount scored twice in their winning season, including the decisive goal for Chelsea in the semi-finals against Real Madrid.

Earlier reports suggest that Liverpool are considered the frontrunners to lure Mount away from Chelsea, merely because of his wish to keep playing in the Premier League. Nevertheless, Bayern have also been added to the mix after Thomas Tuchel's appointment, who reportedly asked Bayern's hierarchy to sign the footballer.

Chelsea still have time to twist Mount's arm and convince him of staying put, but as things stand for the club, it seems highly unlikely to see the midfielder extending his stay at Stamford Bridge beyond this season.
