Mauricio Pochettino reassures Conor Gallagher will remain at Chelsea

Conor Gallagher’s future has been the subject of great speculation over the last few days.

The Blues have rejected an offer of £40million from West Ham for the 23-year-old midfielder and was expected to depart this summer.

But manager Mauricio Pochettino insisted that Gallagher is still a part of his midfield plans and will continue his stay at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea need some midfield reinforcements after N’Golo Kante, Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Mateo Kovacic all left the club this summer.

They are heavily linked with Brighton’s Moises Caicedo who are demanding £100m for the young midfielder.

But Pochettino was a little unconvincing when asked about the player’s future.

He said: “I was talking with him the first day that he arrived [and said] that he’s in our plans.

“In football, anything can happen. Now I am happy with him and his performance there are still two years on his contract.

“I’m happy with him and his performance. At the moment there’s nothing to say.”
