“I don’t want to leave, I want to keep improving, keep helping the club”– £50M-Per-Week player breaks silence
Conor Gallagher has stated his desire to stay at Chelsea and fight for his place in the team, amid interest from Tottenham. West Ham had a £40 million offer for Gallagher turned down by Chelsea earlier in the summer, and now Tottenham is reportedly considering making a bid for the England international. After captaining Chelsea in their 2-1 victory over AFC Wimbledon, Gallagher expressed his commitment to the club and his willingness to compete for a spot in Mauricio Pochettino’s team.
“I don’t want to stop, I want to keep improving, keep helping the club,” Gallagher said.
“It was a great moment tonight [captaining the team] and hopefully many more.
“Everyone’s playing well, obviously a lot of top midfielders [have joined the club], but I’m just playing with quite a lot of confidence at the minute, I feel fit and strong.
“It’s great to have a great squad that we have for this season, it’s really important to help us win games.
“I’m happy with how it’s going so far for myself, I want to keep improving and keep helping the team get more wins.”
