  • At least five clubs interested
  • Gallagher could bring back significant fee
  • But Chelsea want to maintain midfield depth

WHAT HAPPENED? Despite a potential bidding war between Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, Everton, Newcastle and West Ham, the Blues are unwilling to sell Gallagher on deadline day after agreeing to send Jorginho to Arsenal, according to The Athletic. They have never been keen on another loan, and offers to this point have underwhelmed. So, barring a late twist, Gallagher will remain at Stamford Bridge until at least the summer.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Chelsea are said to be in pursuit of Enzo Fernandez before the deadline, but their injury-prone options in midfield mean they need depth even if Fernandez joins. Gallagher impressed last year during his loan spell at Crystal Palace but has been an awkward fit thus far with the Blues. Still, at just 22 years old, there is hope the best is yet to come from the England international.
