Chelsea hero Emmanuel Petit is urging Mason Mount to stay where he is.
With just over a year to run on his current deal and is a target for Liverpool and Arsenal.
But Petit told BoyleSports: “Chelsea should try their best to keep Mount.
“I know he’s been linked with some big clubs, but taking away this season, he has been remarkable and he’s grown up with the club. He was developing into a brilliant midfield player, with goals and assists, and I think this year has been a transition year for Chelsea – so don’t put everything in a rubbish bin.
“He’s one of the last English players in the dressing room, too, which is very important for the fans. Chelsea should not make a stupid decision to sell Mount, he should stay at Chelsea.”
