Pochettino backs Gallagher as Arsenal set offer for world-class player

 Chelsea head coach Mauricio Pochettino has stressed his desire for Conor Gallagher to stay at the club after suggestions the midfielder could be sold next month, according to Daily Express. Pochettino has however hinted that the final decision on the 23-year-old's future won't be down to him despite him being such a big fan of Gallagher.

He is one of the captains. "He has a massive impact on the game. He is a box-to- box player, and we are so happy with his performance."
