Chelsea sweat over Gallagher’s future

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher in the upcoming summer transfer window, as the North Londoners have established the England international as a prime target for this off-season. His current employers, Chelsea, fear that the 24-year-old is in the driving seat for his own future, with his contract set to expire next summer, per Football Insider.

The former Crystal Palace midfielder only has twelve months left on his current deal at Stamford Bridge. The report by Football Insider claims Chelsea is “worried” that the midfielder can decide his future as he would be able to sign a pre-contract agreement with clubs beyond England in January 2025. 

Todd Boehly & Co. are anxious that the player who made 50 appearances for the Blues last season while contributing to sixteen goals could leave the club on a free transfer. The officials at Stoke d’Abernon are wary of the “big blow” if he continues at the bridge beyond the upcoming summer transfer window.
