Prospective Chelsea owner Todd Boehly reportedly desires to make signing Reece James and Mason Mount on long-term deals his top priority once he assumes control of the club.
Boehly is alleged to be concerned with a few of the Chelsea player’s contract situations with various key stars having only a number of years left. Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger are already set to depart on free transfers at the tip of the season. Spanish defender Marcos Alonso has also told the club he wants to affix Barcelona while long-serving captain Cesar Azpilicueta is predicted to follow suit.

The academy graduates have been two of Chelsea’s key players this season with Mount contributing 12 goals and 15 assists and James registering an extra six goals and 7 assists despite suffering an injury-hit second half of the season.
