Believing that Conor Gallagher can be part of our workforce and play a role with us, admits Thomas Tuchel

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has praised Conor Gallagher and believes the midfielder can play a role for the Blues next season once he returns from his loan spell. The 22-year-old caused a stir for Crystal Palace, contributing 13 goals in just 32 appearances in all competitions.

After a less than impressive loan spell at West Bromwich Albion last season, many expected chelsea to sell Conor Gallagher, but the Blues opted to send the midfielder on loan instead. Despite the interest of several clubs, crystal palace won the race and the 22-year-old proved to be a sensation for Patrick Vieira’s team. So far, Gallagher has scored 8 league goals and 3 assists, also assisting the Eagles to the FA Cup semi-final.

Many questions have been asked about Gallagher’s future, especially with the Chelsea squad filled with world-class midfielders. However, despite this, Thomas Tuchel believes the 22-year-old can be part of their squad and play a big role for them next season. But the German also added that they will have a conversation with Gallagher over the summer to discuss his future and what needs to be done in the future.

“I believe Conor can be part of our team and can play a role with us. But I’m not the only one to decide. We have to talk after the season with everyone, talk after the season about what Conor wants, we have to see what the situation is and what role we have for him that he can fight for,” Tuchel told the Guardian.

“There has to be something to fight for, a role and a perspective of where you are, where you can be, what you need to accomplish. So we have to be very clear with him and he has to be clear with us. Then we will do the sorting. Its development is extraordinary and exceptional.

“He is one of Crystal Palace’s key players and has taken a big step forward in his development. It was a pleasure to coach in pre-season – he has so much positive energy, energy in general , and such a pace of work to give that it can have a great influence.
