Mount finally reveal how he reacted to Chelsea signing Kai Havertz

Chelsea have spent more than £200million this summer signing Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Malang Sarr, Thiago Silva and Kai Havertz.

Following Havertz’s move to Chelsea, reports in Germany claimed Mount was unhappy with the transfer and was concerned about his game-time ahead of the new campaign.

Mount has now responded to claims that he wasn’t happy with Chelsea signing Kai Havertz from Havertz.

According to Mount, he welcomes the added competition at Stamford Bridge following Chelsea’s summer spending spree and sees Kai Havertz’s arrival as ‘positive’.

“You look at our team now and some brilliant, world class players have come in and that keeps the competition high,” Mount told Sky Sports.

“Everyone is pushing for places and that’s what you want at a club like this. You want the competition to be there because it keeps standards high.

“When you’re in this building, you’re competing straight away. Chelsea is a massive club so they are always going to sign top players.

“You know that’s going to happen. We’re all competing and the gaffer wants high standards in training. I love competing against my team-mates, we all love it.”

Asked whether there was any trepidation because of Chelsea’s spending spree, Mount added: “I think it’s normal. Players are going to come in.

“When you have those players coming in, they’re always going to help the team.

“There’s always going to be that little bit of a feeling that they could be coming in to your position. But with me, I’m always positive and up for the challenge.”
