Gallagher’s Chelsea Contract Update is Not What You Expected
Fans certainly weren’t prepared for a significant update regarding Conor Gallagher’s ostensibly impending Chelsea contract. In the ‘news’ comes another article that suggests Ivan Toney, a striker in high demand at Brentford, is unsure of what to do in the face of attention from teams, including those in west London.
According to rumours, Gallagher’s planned new CFC contract may be cancelled by Chelsea management. The owners reportedly want to “see how Romeo Lavia and Christopher Nkunku perform” before making a decision about the midfield player. Following some exhilarating Gallagher performances, the Blues fan base will be shocked by this news.
Mauricio Pochettino has a midfield/front line conundrum to address with Gallagher, Raheem Sterling, Cole Palmer, Nicolas Jackson, and the soon-to-be Nkunku all competing for a starting spot. However, as I’ve already mentioned, it’s one of those nice difficulties.
Ivan Toney will decide as Chelsea prepare.
Speaking of forwards, Toney, who is highly regarded, finds himself in a difficult situation. Regardless of his intentions, the Englishman finds himself in a rather exceptional situation. The skillfully talented yet incredibly strong centre forward is being pursued by two of the top football clubs in the Premier League and the entire world.
To be fair, it must be difficult to decide between Chelsea and Arsenal. Let’s face it, the Gunners are competitively vying for English top flight crowns and possess equally impressive technical skills. The Blues, on the other hand, are evolving slowly but have the resources and potential to contend for titles in the coming seasons. That viewpoint is only relevant should Mauricio Pochettino stay on Fulham Road!
It is said that Toney is willing to stay with Brentford for the rest of the current season. Chelsea and Arsenal, according to this rumours, may be interested in signing him during the January transfer window.
