Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher will made a decision on his future at Stamford Bridge once he learns what the club’s new manager has planned for him, 90minunderstands.
The Blues academy graduate, who will enter the final two years of his contract this summer, has been a regular for Chelsea this season but has struggled to hold down a permanent starting spot, with just 12 of his 28 Premier League outings coming as a starter.
With Enzo Fernandez joining in January and Chelsea still hunting for a new midfielder, a number of clubs from across the Premier League have established their interest in signing Gallagher if he becomes available.
Indeed, 90min understands that Liverpool, Tottenham, Newcastle, Crystal Palace and Leicester are all keeping an eye on Gallagher as he approaches what could be a crossroads in his career.
Chelsea are reluctant to let any players enter the final two years of their contracts and so Gallagher may have to make a decision on his future in the coming weeks.
Gallagher will not decide until he has spoken with whoever is hired as the club’s new manager. Julian Nagelsmann recently met with Blues officials to discuss the position, while Luis Enrique has already held talks.
The 23-year-old is understood to believe that he still has a future at Chelsea but would require assurances over game time by the new manager. Gallagher is keen to be handed a significant role in the squad but is not thought to be demanding a permanent starting spot at this point in his career.
