Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount his quickly becoming one of the most exciting talents in English football.
The playmaker burst onto the scene this season during his loan spell at Vitesse Arnhem (who else?) from Stamford Bridge, scoring 13 goals and assisting 10 more in 40 appearances.
It now looks likely that Frank Lampard will try to use his considerable connections at Chelsea to try and land the 19-year-old for Derby County this season.
He would no doubt be an exciting addition, but one other club who are in need of fresh attacking talent are Leeds United.
After hiring Marcelo Bielsa, the Whites seem intent on launching a bid for promotion.
So should the Argentine try to hijack Derby’s move for Mason Mount?
I think Mount is definitely worth a punt for any Championship side.
The youngster has pure attacking flair and a natural talent which is only likely to get better.
He is a Chelsea star in the making and a season at Leeds would do his development good.
They should certainly try.
Whether they would have much joy considering Derby are managed by a Chelsea legend remains to be seen but he has the talent and ability to star in the Championship.
I’m not sure.
Mount is a good player with quality but Leeds have got the likes of Samuel Saiz, Lewis Baker and Pablo Hernandez that all like to operate in his area.
Leeds should prioritise other positions.
Not for me, I think Leeds have too many bodies in that area of the pitch already.
Unless one of Samu Saiz or Pablo Hernandez leaves, Leeds don’t need to be bringing in another attacking midfielder.
Of course, Mount looks a great player, but he isn’t what Leeds need.
It seems to me that Leeds are the ones being hijacked, rather than doing the hijacking.
I’d recommend not wasting time trying to gazump sides who look set to complete deals, but focus attention on getting their own targets over the line.
