CHELSEA fans are convinced Conor Gallagher is going to be sold after the Blues recall Cesare Casadei from Leicester.
The Italy U21’s star has been put is expected to be a part of Mauricio Pochettino‘s first team this month.
Casadei, 21, was brought to Stamford Bridge in 2022 for £13million and immediately sent out on loan to Reading followed by Leicester this season.
But Blues boss Pochettino has recalled the midfielder who was set to stay at the King Power Stadium until the summer.
And fans are convinced this means Gallagher will be heading out the exit door as a result.
One supporter said: “GALLAGHER SOLDDDDDD.”
And a second agreed: “GALLAGHER GETTING SOLD.”
A third then chipped in to say: “That’s a Gallagher deal agreed then I assume.”
However, he has had a more successful stint on loan at Leicester who are top of the Championship with three goals in 25 appearances.
And Gallagher who has 18 months left on his contract at Chelsea means the club need to decide on the 23-year-old’s future.
And Chelsea would be willing to sell the midfielder provided it is for the right price.
Meanwhile, other fans have also resorted that Casadei’s return is due to an ongoing injury crisis at the club as Romeo Lavia.
The 19-year-old midfielder joined from Southampton late into the summer transfer window but has been nursing ankle an issue since his arrival.
A fan said: “Either Lavia’s injury is worse than feared, or Gallagher is getting sold.”
Another added: “eeeeeerrrrrrrr someone’s either getting sold or someone has a catastrophic injury.”
