Chelsea legend Florent Malouda has urged Mason Mount not to join Premier League rivals Liverpool who are luring him for the summer transfer window.
Mount’s game time has decreased this season under Graham Potter with his performances also under his standards.
The 25-year old is now being linked with a move to Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool as they want to bolster their midfield area.
However, Chelsea legend Florent Malouda thinks Mount should not the Reds as they are Chelsea rivals.
“Mason Mount should snub Liverpool and stay at Chelsea,” Malouda told DAZN Bet.
“I don’t think Mason Mount should leave Chelsea. It should be part of your mentality and spirit that when you are at a club like Chelsea, there’s strong competition.
“Mount is like the DNA for Chelsea, he loves the club. When you look at his performances since he got into the first team, playing lots of games for club and country, it is normal that physically, you need to recover and regenerate.
“But it should not be his mentality that just because you are not in the starting XI, you’ve to leave. It could be the same at Liverpool or any top club.”
