Mauricio Pochettino reaffirmed his desire for Conor Gallagher to stay at Chelsea next season but insisted the decision was out of his hands.

Gallagher had been in the transfer headlines alot this season as it was believed that Chelsea would have allowed him to depart the club if the right offer was made.

That has led to constant speculation in the media that WEST HAM are very keen to try and get a deal done for the midfielder – and even made an offer of £40 million, which was rejected by the Blues as they were seeking closer to £50 million for Gallagher.

The midfielder has been ever-present for Pochettino this season – providing six goals alongside nine assists in 46 appearances – with Spurs another one of the clubs linked with a move for Gallagher in the summer.

But amid the speculation and the rumours – Pochettino has come out and admitted that he would like to keep Gallagher at the club at the end of the season: ‘I am not involved. I don’t know nothing,’ Pochettino admitted.

‘I think you can see in my starting XI that the whole season he was always there. With all the circumstances, he was always there.

‘Yes, he is an important player, of course but I am not involved in the decision. It is the club and Conor.

‘That is a situation they need to fix between the club and the player.’

SHOULD GALLAGHER STAY AT CHELSEA?

There is no doubt that Gallagher is a talented midfielder that could shine under Pochettino – so if the boss wants him at CHELSEA FC – stay. Especially as there is a place for him in the side.

But if Chelsea need to sign some new players – then Gallagher is a player that could generate some decent funds for the club to sign some new faces.
