West Ham interested in signing Chelsea midfielder as replacement for £105million Declan Rice

According to GOAL, Premier League side West Ham are interested in signing Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher as a replacement for Declan Rice, who has joined Arsenal in a deal worth £105million.

West Ham reportedly believe they can sign Gallagher if they offer a fee of around £30million to Chelsea.

However, according to the Telegraph, Chelsea will demand a fee of over £50 million to part ways with Gallagher this summer.

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino is an admirer of Gallagher and a move will come down to whether he is deemed a player who can be sold this summer.

Gallagher made 35 appearances in the Premier League for Chelsea last season, although 17 were as a substitute.
