Mason mount to be called up to Gareth southgate's england squad next week
Mount only made his Premier League debut 10 days ago, but he is now a key part of Frank Lampard's plans at Stamford Bridge. He has started both Premier League games so far this season and scored his first senior goal for the club against Leicester on Sunday.
Southgate's assistant Steve Holland was at the game and Sky sport news has been told he was impressed by Mount's level of performance, as well as that of Maddison.
Mount, 20, was called up to the senior national squad for the first time in October 2018, just a month after making his debut for England's Under-21s.
Maddison, 22, is no longer eligible for England U21s, and Southgate is expected to include him in his senior squad, which will be announced at Wembley on Thursday August 29, ahead of their Euro 2020 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Kosovo.
