Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has the power to make the “final decision” over Conor Gallagher’s future at the club as we enter the final hours of the market.

What’s the word?

That is according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, via GIVEMESPORT, who claims the German boss is the one who will decide what happens to Gallagher, amidst a lot of reported interest for the England international.

But the Italian journalist believes that his is normal for an outfit of Chelsea’s stature.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Romano said:

“It’s normal for Chelsea to have this kind of situation. From what I’m told, it’s Thomas Tuchel who has to decide. And, as of now, there’s no green light from Thomas Tuchel for Gallagher.”

Tuchel’s huge decision

Amidst a lack of options in the engine room due to somewhat of an injury crisis, Tuchel faces a battle in his decision to stick or twist.

The German has a player who is desperate for minutes and is reportedly “pushing for a move”, if minutes cannot be promised with the World Cup right around the corner.

Due to us now finding ourselves in the final hours before the window slams shut, if the 22-year-old was to leave, it would most likely be through the means of a loan spell – which benefitted him to no end last season as he earned England recognition for his performances.

Though, with Chelsea struggling for options in the engine room, it would be slightly surprising to see the boss allow Gallagher to depart in his time of need.

Especially when you factor in the Cobham graduate’s squad-topping metrics as a ball winner, with his average of 5.5 successful tackles and 2.7 interceptions per 90 miles ahead of his teammates.

Tuchel gave the England international a second consecutive start in the 2-1 win against Leicester City but was ultimately let down by the starlet’s red card.

So it remains to be seen as to what level of trust the gaffer is prepared to place in the 22-year-old, who has scored 33-goals over the course of his professional career.
