Gallagher decides on Chelsea future after Tottenham transfer link

Conor Gallagher has indicated he has no intention of leaving Chelsea after being linked with a late transfer move to Tottenham.

West Ham United saw their £40million offer for Gallagher turned down by Chelsea earlier this summer.

Tottenham are now considering a bid for the England midfielder in the final 48 hours of the summer transfer window, while it’s believed that Chelsea would agree to a £45m deal.

Gallagher captained Chelsea in their 2-1 win over AFC Wimbledon in the second round of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday and speaking after the game, the midfielder made it clear that he wants to fight for his place in Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

‘I don’t want to stop, I want to keep improving, keep helping the club,’ Gallagher said.

‘It was a great moment tonight [captaining the team] and hopefully many more.

‘Everyone’s playing well, obviously a lot of top midfielders [have joined the club], but I’m just playing with quite a lot of confidence at the minute, I feel fit and strong.

‘It’s great to have a great squad that we have for this season, it’s really important to help us win games.

‘I’m happy with how it’s going so far for myself, I want to keep improving and keep helping the team get more wins.’

Meanwhile, Pochettino also praised Gallagher for his superb start to the campaign in Chelsea’s midfield.

‘Conor is a great professional, his commitment with the club, with the team,’ Pochettino said.

‘I’m so happy for him because he’s showing great character, great commitment, he’s playing very well.’
