CHELSEA are reportedly already working on a deal to sign up midfielder Conor Gallagher.
Gallegher had been in the transfer headlines alot this summer as it was believed that the club would have allowed him to depart the club if the right offer was made.
That has led to constant speculation in the media that West Ham are very keen to try and get a deal done for the midfielder – and even made an offer of £40 million, which was rejected by the Blues as they were seeking closer to £50 million for Gallagher.
He has featured in the opening weeks of the season for Mauricio Pochettino and is beginning to look like the player that many tipped to become a world class act just a few seasons ago.
WHAT IS THE LATEST –
That’s according to TEAMtalk, who claim the board do not want to lose the midfielder ahead of his contract expiring in 18 months.
The report says that Gallagher has been a mainstay of Pochettino’s midfield and has even donned the captain’s armband and the Blues are now expected to open talks over a new deal.
There is no doubt that Gallagher is a talented midfielder that could shine under Pochettino – so if the boss wants him at Stamford Bridge, Especially as there is a place for him in the side.
There has been so much speculation about his future for seasons now, so this new deal will kind of end the immediate speculation surrounding his future and keep him settled.
