Chelsea and England midfielder Mason Mount has revealed that he wants to improve his finishing so he can take his game to 'another level'.

Mount enjoyed his best ever scoring season last time out for the Blues, netting 11 times in 32 Premier League appearances. His creative powers did not dwindle much either, with the 22-year-old also registering 10 assists.

Despite these impressive numbers, Mount has admitted that he is not satisfied with his goal-scoring yet.

Asked what aspect of his game he'd like to change in a Q&A posted on the England Football website, Mount responded: "Finishing. For a midfielder, if you can add goals to your game then it takes you to another level."

The Chelsea man was speaking before the Three Lions' four upcoming UEFA Nations League matches, and he went on to explain which attribute he would most want among his England teammates.

"Kyle Walker’s pace because he is quickest," Mount added.

"Then you would have the strength of Reece James, Harry Kane’s finishing, Jadon Sancho, Jack Grealish, Raheem Sterling and all of our wingers, like Marcus Rashford’s dribbling and skills, there is so much talent.

"But I would probably go for Kyle Walker’s pace because he is rapid, he is actually rapid, so to have Walks' pace would be unbelievable."

England kick off their Nations League campaign with a trip to Budapest to face Hungary on Saturday. They then take on Germany, Italy and then Hungary again, this time at home.
