Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp is certain that young Chelsea player Mason Mount would be one of the breakout stars of the new Premier League season.
He spoke highly of the Chelsea midfielder in a chat with the Daily Mail.
According to him, Mason Mount would be an important player for Chelsea who were unable to flex their muscles in the just concluded Premier League transfer window.
The Blues were handed a transfer ban by world football’s governing body FIFA for breaching rules relating to the signing of players under the age of 18.
Chelsea were given a two-window transfer ban and they had their appeal against the ruling thrown out by FIFA’s Appeal Committee.
The West Londoners have taken their case to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) and a ruling is expected in the nearest future.
They have already served the first transfer window of the ban.
Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount has somewhat benefitted from the transfer ban as manager Frank Lampard has had to integrate young players like him into the first team.
Mason Mount spent last season on loan at English Championship outfit Derby County while Frank Lampard was their manager.
The 20-year-old has been in very good form for Chelsea since returning to the club this summer.
