The last week has largely been focused on Chelsea’s interest in buying players, but on the backburner there’s the pressing issue of which stars the Blues are going to loan out or sell.
One of the biggest decisions to make is over Conor Gallagher, who could be kept in the first team squad, could be loaned out, or could be sold.
Today there are whispers around that Aston Villa are interested in the midfielder, who shone last season and is ready to take a step up from Crystal Palace. We want that to be at Chelsea.
Aston Villa are being kept informed of Conor Gallagher’s situation at #Chelsea. The midfielder is said to have a £30million price tag, but Thomas Tuchel wants to analyse the player during pre-season.

Villa are a rising power in the top flight it seems, with big spending, a big name manager and chief executive, and rich owners.
If Gallagher is tempted by a move there, and Chelsea can’t convince him he will get a chance at Stamford Bridge this season, the Blues might struggle to keep hold of him.
