Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher is staying put – despite a reported five other clubs coming in for the player.

The Cobham academy graduate, who went to the World Cup with England but failed to get on the pitch, has been the subject of a lot of interest this window. He's found minutes harder to come by this season, after impressing for Crystal Palace last time out – but still, Chelsea want to keep him. 

And there's no shortage of interest in Gallagher, either.

Per GOAL (opens in new tab), five teams have been in for Gallagher. Everton were thought to be most interested in the midfielder (opens in new tab) for a fee around £40 million, but couldn't get the deal done. 

Newcastle United (opens in new tab) were another interested party. Apparently, the Magpies were also pursuing Sander Berge of Sheffield United. Aston Villa and West Ham United were touted, too.

Of course, Crystal Palace are perennially interested in the 22-year-old after his storming season in Croydon. No concrete links for the player have been made, however. 

Chelsea have instead let another midfielder go in the form of Jorginho. The Italian has moved across London to Arsenal.

Gallagher is now set to be competing for his spot with Enzo Fernandez, though. The Benfica star is set to sign for over £100m. 

Gallagher is valued to be worth around €32m by Transfermarkt (opens in new tab)
