Former Chelsea midfielder Oscar broke into the Chelsea team from a young age, as he signed up for the club as a wonder kid from Brazil.

Oscar has singled out Blues midfielder Mason Mount for praise, and admitted that he sees himself in the young England midfielder at times.

“I like him,” Oscar told talkSPORT of Mount.

“Sometimes he doesn’t play like me but sometimes, I watch him and I can see a little bit of me there because I also came into Chelsea when I was so young and played good football

“I really like him. He has everything you need to improve.

“He scores goals, he does some important things and he knows how to defend and attack. I really like him.”

Meanwhile, Oscar has admitted that he’s keen to come back to Chelsea, having left the club in 2017 for Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG.

“I think about finishing at Chelsea because I had good times before at Chelsea,” Oscar added.

“Chelsea helped me a lot to improve and to do what I always dreamed [of], which was to play in the Champions League and they helped me to play in the World Cup and to win the Premier League.

“I have a lot of friends at Chelsea. If I have a chance to finish my career at Chelsea, it’s a dream for me.

“Of course, Chelsea don’t like to buy too many older players, which is normal because it’s a top team from Europe, but I will try my best to be fit to finish there.”
