Various reports have suggested that the two clubs are close on an agreement for Gallagher as Mauricio Pochettino could lose a key component of his team during a disappointing start to his reign at Stamford Bridge.
The Argentine boss recently stated his desire for the club to keep Gallagher, who wears the captain’s armband once again for the trip to Luton on Saturday in the absence of Reece James and Ben Chilwell.
“That is between the club and the player,” Pochettino said when asked for an update on Gallagher’s contract. “I don’t need to talk too much because it is not my decision. He is in the starting eleven in nearly all the games and is one of the captains. For me, he is the type of player that the club needs to have.”
