Chelsea are reportedly willing to sell Conor Gallagher in the summer transfer window.
The Chelsea hierarchy have reportedly not been too impressed by Gallagher and do not think that the midfielder has done enough for the Blues this season.
West Ham United, Newcastle United and Crystal Palace interested in signing the England international midfielder in the summer transfer window, according to the report, which has added that the 23-year-old is valued at £40 million.
Should Chelsea sell Conor Gallagher for £40 million?
In our view, if Chelsea do not think that Conor Gallagher will be a success at the club in the long term, then there is no point in the former Premier League and UEFA Champions League winners keeping him at Stamford Bridge beyond the summer of 2023.
For both Chelsea and Gallagher, it would make sense to go separate ways.
The England international is 23 now, and he cannot afford to be a squad player now if he is to progress and develop in his career.
The 23-year-old has made 18 starts and 17 substitute appearances in the Premier League for Chelsea this season.
Gallagher has scored three goals and given one assist in those games.
It isquite interesting that the Chelsea hierarchy have not been too impressed by Gallagher given what has been said about him in public.
Chelsea interim-manager Frank Lampard recently suggested that the 23-year-old is a big part of the club’s future.
Last season when the youngster was on loan at Crystal Palace, then Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel described his development as “extraordinary and outstanding”.
