Conor Gallagher has emerged as an important player for coach Mauricio Pochettino this season and even wore the captain’s armband in Reece James’ absence. However, with Chelsea worried about the Financial Fair Play issue, Gallagher almost left Stamford Bridge in the winter of 2024.
In the end, he remained at Chelsea. However, the future of the player born in 2000 is still open. The English star only has 18 months left with Chelsea, so if he does not sign a new contract, summer 2024 will be the ideal time for the Blues to sell their pillar.
The Athletic reported that Newcastle United admires Gallagher and he is on the shortlist for the 2024 summer transfer window. Gallagher appears on that list alongside Aston Villa’s Jacob Ramsey and Nottingham Forest’s Morgan Gibbs-White.
The Magpies had a quiet January due to Financial Fair Play concerns, but the Magpies are expected to return strongly this summer. Tottenham Hotspur are also interested in the Chelsea star but only time will tell whether the Blues will sell the 23-year-old.
