Conor Gallagher has no intention of leaving Chelsea right now, and will reject a move away from Stamford Bridge, even if the club were to accept a bid for him, according to a new report.
Gallagher has a contract with Chelsea that runs through to 2025, and is legally allowed to remain at the club until that time elapses.
The 23-year-old has been very important for Chelsea this season, upping his game so much that he has played in all, but one of the Blues’ matches from the start of the campaign.
The England international has also captained the team on numerous occasions this season, with Reece James and Ben Chilwell both out with injuries.
Despite Gallagher’s obvious importance to Mauricio Pochettino’s plans at Stamford Bridge, there have been reports that the owners of the club are open to selling him if the right bid comes in.
Tottenham were close to signing the midfielder over the summer, but in the end, he opted to remain at Chelsea. The season has now started well for him, and the rumours have resurfaced with the arrival of the winter transfer window.
According to the Evening Standard, Gallagher does not want to leave Chelsea, and will resist any attempts to force him out against his will.
It is also claimed that Pochettino likes the player, and has been making a case for him to remain at the club, and help his team to success this season.
