Chelsea are considering selling Conor Gallagher as a table offer from Everton worth £45million but may struggle to convince the player to move amid interest from Newcastle, West Ham and Crystal Palace
Chelsea are ready to sell academy graduate Conor Gallagher this month after Everton tabled a £45million bid, according to talkSPORT.
talkSPORT revealed earlier on Monday how the 22-year-old is being chased by Newcastle, Crystal Palace and West Ham.

But now Everton have joined the race to steer the midfielder away from Stamford Bridge before the 11pm transfer deadline on Tuesday.
But in a potential blow to the Toffees, talkSPORT football correspondent Alex Crook says they may struggle to persuade Gallagher to join.
It remains to be seen whether Newcastle, Palace or the Hammers will get the kind of money that Everton are offering.
The Merseyside side currently sit 19th in the Premier League table and are in serious danger of being relegated for the first time since 1951.
Gallagher, who played on loan with the Eagles last season, has played 25 games in all competitions for the Blues this season.
He has missed just two of Chelsea’s 20 top-flight appearances, despite being limited to just eight starts.
