How Chelsea’s £70m Acquisition Could Become a Key Player in Pochettino’s Squad

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount could be set for a bright future under potential new manager Mauricio Pochettino, according to journalist Dean Jones. The 24-year-old has resumed contract talks with Chelsea, with the club rumored to have set a £70 million price tag to ward off interest from rivals, including Manchester United and Liverpool. Mount has struggled for consistency this season, compared to his impressive stats in the 2021/22 season.

Jones believes that Mount would be a perfect fit for Pochettino’s high-pressing style, with the midfielder potentially being utilized in an advanced role in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Pochettino previously had success with a similar structure utilizing Christian Eriksen during his time at Tottenham Hotspur. Mount’s impressive offensive touches in the penalty area, averaging 3.97 per 90 minutes according to FBRef, could make him a valuable asset for Pochettino if he is able to convince the England international to stay at the club. The next few months could be crucial for Mount as he weighs up his future at Chelsea.
