Ex-CHELSEA midfielder Andy Townsend has says Enzo Maresca should do everything he can to keep Conor Gallagher at Chelsea

Gallagher was one of the players that Mauricio Pochettino relied on the most over the course of his stay at Stamford Bridge – and the midfielder rarely let the side down with his hard-working performances.

But there has been alot of transfer speculation in the media that he is one player that the club are very much open to letting leave the club at the end of the season – with the likes of Tottenham and West Ham reportedly interested in a deal.

However – amid that speculation and rumours – Townsend has told the incoming boss Maresca to do all he can to make sure that Conor Gallagher is a Blues player by the end of the summer window.

‘I thought Conor Gallagher had a really good season,’ Townsend said on talkSPORT. ‘I thought he played some really good stuff.

‘He was good on loan at Crystal Palace and I think he added more to his game last season. His partnership with Moises Caicedo is much better than the Enzo [Fernandez] one.

‘I would love to think that Maresca could say to the hierarchy, “please don’t sell him, I need him and desperately want him to stay”. I think he played really well and deserves to stay.’
