The England international midfielder is out of contract in 2024, and negotiations between both parties have not yielded much.
The Blues want manager Graham Potter and the squad to focus on arresting their poor run of form.
Talks between Chelsea and Mount are not expected to resume until the summer. The Stamford Bridge club intend to secure the 24-year-old to new terms or approve a sale once the season ends.
Some of the other traditional ‘Big Six’ clubs in England will likely join the Reds in the race for his signature if he becomes available.
The west London club lost Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen for free last summer after their contracts expired.
They want to avoid anyone entering the final two years of their contracts going forward.
Potter’s side are 10th in the Premier League after 23 games. They have won just eight league matches this season, with 11 points between them and the Champions League places.
Chelsea are four points off the Europa Conference League spot and will look to quickly start firing on all cylinders.
They have scored 23 league goals and conceded the same amount. Improvements are needed at both ends of the pitch, and Potter will hope Mount and others can start delivering the goods.
The midfielder has bagged three goals and three assists in 31 games this term. Mount needs to do more, having drawn blank in the last nine games across all competitions.
