PSG star Kylian Mbappe has spoken highly of Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount.

Speaking ahead of France encounter with Germany, Mbappe told France Football that Mount would be among the three interviews he would most like to read next in the magazine along with Gianluigi Buffon and Lionel Messi – not bad company, eh?

“Gigi because I would like to know what he is going to do next, Messi, because he does not speak much, so we would discover things,” Mbappe said.

“Mason Mount, because he is a superb player that we don’t yet know much about.”

Meanwhile, Mateo Kovacic has also reserved special praise for Mason Mount ahead of England vs Croatia clash.

Kovacic said: “They have an excellent midfield. Mount is in excellent form. Rice as well in West Ham, and [Jordan] Henderson. They have a lot of quality there but so have we – we have excellence there.”
