Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher is reportedly ready to leave the Blues if he is dropped by manager Mauricio Pochettino this season.
According to Football Insider (via TeamTalk), Gallagher will consider his future at Chelsea if he loses his place in Pochettino’s side before January.
The 23-year-old knows he will need game time ahead of the European Championships next year.
The England international could be under pressure soon, as Romeo Lavia, who was signed from Southampton, is recovering from injury and may be eyeing Gallagher’s spot.
Meanwhile, Carney Chukwuemeka is also sidelined and is facing six weeks out after undergoing surgery.
However, Chuwkuemeka, too, could push for Gallagher’s starting spot for a Chelsea side that have started the 2022–23 season woefully.
Gallagher has started all six of Chelsea’s games across competitions this season.
However, he has yet to score or assist, and his future was uncertain in the summer amid interest from Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur.
