Chelsea news and transfers LIVE: Jules Kounde bid, Matthijs de Ligt ‘ready’, Mourinho ‘reunion’

Mount’s message to Tuchel

Mason Mount has given Thomas Tuchel a clearer understanding of what Chelsea must achieve in the summer transfer window. While away on international duty with England, the 23-year-old outlined his best position.

Speaking after Gareth Southgate led England to a goalless draw against Italy at Molineux on Saturday night, Mount said: “It gave me more freedom to roam, try and find spaces and try to link the midfield to the attacking boys, I found myself in space a couple of times to shoot but I didn’t do well enough.

“It was too easy for the ‘keeper, I needed to look for the corners and yeah, it is a difficult one to take because I feel as though we could have come away from the game with more and we are frustrated with the performance.”
