Will Conor Gallagher Stay or Leave Chelsea is the Big Question

Nobody really knows if Conor Gallagher is an asset or not. Chelsea have all sorts of problems this season. Will selling him solve any?

Club Situation

One of Chelsea’s most reliable players this year has been Conor Gallagher. A homegrown talent who has been frequently chosen by England and vital enough to wear the captain’s armband in recent weeks, according to Stamford Bridge boss Mauricio Pochettino. Pochettino is unsure if Gallagher will still be with the team when the January transfer window ends, despite all of that.

The 23-year-old’s potential departure from Chelsea next month would not even be in discussion if Gallagher’s future there was to be determine only by his performance. It is evident that his contract, which is set to expire at the conclusion of the 2024–25 season. Needs to be address at some point over the upcoming year.

“It is a decision between the player and the club, to be or not to be,” Pochettino tells reporters this week when asked about Gallagher’s future at Chelsea. “He is in the starting XI nearly every game and one of the captains. For me, he is the type of player that the club need to have.

Conor Gallagher Future

But there’s a chance that Gallagher may depart Chelsea in January for little more than financial considerations. Given how many of the club’s high-profile acquisitions are finding it difficult to establish themselves. However, Pochettino has little control over Gallagher’s future because of the financial advantages of parting ways with him. Especially with the transfer market about to open in less than two weeks.

Despite the fact that Gallagher is an important member of Pochettino’s squad. Sources have told ESPN that Chelsea is open to bids for him in January. The player has been in link to moves with West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur, and Newcastle United.

It’s no knowledge in the industry that Chelsea would probably be entice to let go of Gallagher with an offer of £50 million. A top official at a Premier League opponent told ESPN. This would therefore make it possible for the team to challenge Arsenal in their attempt to sign Brentford attacker Ivan Toney. Whose ban for breaking gaming laws will expire on January 17.
