The future of Conor Gallagher at Chelsea is up for debate.
It has been reported that no fewer than five clubs were interested in signing the midfielder before transfer deadline day, but Chelsea were unwilling to sanction a move before they had secured the services of Enzo Fernandez.
Now that the Argentine has arrived at the club, that has cast doubts on the future of the England midfielder, and Newcastle United are continuing to follow his situation closely.
At the same time, there have also been suggestions that he could be offered a new deal at Stamford Bridge, and that he will not form part of the expected summer clear-out.
He has only shown glimpses in Chelsea shirt of the form he produced on loan with Crystal Palace that was good enough to get him in the Ringland side, but allowances have been made for the dysfunctional nature of Graham Potter’s team this season.
