Chelsea Youngster, Conor Gallagherr Set To Hold Talks With Tuchel Amid First Team Battle
Conor Gallagher is set to meet with Thomas Tuchel to discuss his place in the squad ahead next season.
The 22-year-old spent last few months with Crystal Palace on loan and has returned to Chelsea for the pre-season.
Palace tried and are still trying to secure him on a permanent contract following his impressive performance for the South Londoners.

It’s clear that Gallagher will be part of the pre-season campaign but Somtosport understands that a loan back to Palace can’t be written off despite transfer interests for Chelsea midfielders.
Tuchel could opt to send Gallagher back to Palace on another season long loan while he works with the current midfielders in expectation of one or more leaving by the end of the 2022/2023 season, or even mid-season.
This all depends on what the outcome of their discussion will be.
