Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher is reportedly hesitant to join Newcastle United this summer, despite the club’s long-standing interest in him.

According to Football Insider, sources close to the player indicate that Gallagher prefers to stay at Chelsea, or if necessary, make a move within London.

Gallagher’s contract with Chelsea is set to expire in June 2025, but negotiations for a renewal have hit a deadlock. With the impasse ongoing, Chelsea is anticipated to offload the England international this summer to help balance their financials.

The midfielder’s priority remains to continue his career at Chelsea, where he has developed a significant part of his professional career. However, if an exit becomes inevitable, Gallagher would prefer a transfer within London, aligning with his personal and professional preferences.

This situation places Newcastle in a challenging position as they aim to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season. Gallagher’s reluctance to move north may lead Newcastle to explore other midfield options as the summer transfer window approaches.
