Under Lampard, the Chelsea academy graduate had established himself as a first-team regular, working closely with him during their time together at Derby County in 2018/19 and then at Stamford Bridge.
Mount was a big fan of Lampard's, and one of the first names on the team sheet for the Chelsea legend was Lampard.
Following the departure of the former Chelsea head coach, many predicted that Mount would soon fall out of favor, with some claiming that Tuchel would prefer to use players who had cost a high transfer fee and had not progressed through the youth ranks.
The England international has already established himself as a key figure in Chelsea manager José Mourinho's long-term plans.
Tuchel has already expressed his admiration for the attacking midfielder, waxing lyrical about his abilities and potential in just his first week at Stamford Bridge.
