Although he has already signed Raheem Sterling and Kolidou Koulibaly in an effort to rebuild his team, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is still interested in overhauling his entire squad during the current summer transfer window.
The Germany tactician may be aware that a number of underperforming players are trying to leave the team, making this an ideal time for him to rebuild his roster and improve his chances of winning major awards in the upcoming season.
But according to Mirror Football, Chelsea's manager is prepared to give Mason Mount the reins after hearing rumors that Cesar Azpilicueta, a 30-year-old defender, is looking to leave and head to Barcelona.
Having led U18 teams, Mount is viewed as the ideal candidate to serve as Tuchel's team captain because he is said to be more outspoken than other possible players like Jorginho and Ngolo Kante.
After Andreas Christensen, Antonio Rudiger, and Romelu Lukaku, Azpilicueta will be the fourth player to leave Chelsea.
Chelsea is still the frontrunner to capture the French international because Sevilla has denied having a deal with Barcelona to sign Jules Kounde.
