Chelsea’s Hesitation with Contract Leads to Rival Interest in England Star

Chelsea are reportedly indecisive about offering Conor Gallagher a new contract with Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United keeping a close watch on his future. His current deal expires in June 2025 and he is eager to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge after impressing with 15 appearances and four assists this season. The 23-year-old midfielder has also been a regular in the England squad, earning 10 caps and gaining interest from Liverpool in the past. However, talks about a new contract have yet to begin, leading to potential interest from other clubs in the upcoming transfer window. Gallagher has praised Thiago Silva’s leadership qualities at Chelsea, despite not having the captain’s armband. Silva has been a key player for the Blues this season, showcasing his experience and talent.
