According to Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea has now turned down a West Ham offer for Conor Gallagher that over £40 million. He announced on Twitter that the Blues turned down the offer after debating it internally and speaking with Mauricio Pochettino about it.

Gallagher has been one of Chelsea's most outstanding players so far under the new management and played a significant role in both of the team's preseason triumphs this summer. Even still, there are still rumors that he might be moving, as several Premier League teams are undoubtedly interested in a trade.

Since receiving a big cash infusion following the sale of Declan Rice, West Ham United has solidified their position as the favorite for the deal. Due to Pochettino, Chelsea rejected Gallagher's bid, according to reports that surfaced yesterday night. The 24-year-old England international was the subject of their first official bid, which included a large transfer cost.

Romano, however, asserted this morning that after consulting with the manager in America, the Blues had turned down a deal from their London rivals. Conor Gallagher's first offer from West Ham was rejected by Chelsea for almost £40 million plus add-ons, he stated.

Chelsea chose to reject after deliberating internally and with Mauricio Pochettino. Chelsea wants at least £50 million to sell Conor, but West Ham is still intrigued. This summer, the Blues have already parted ways with a number of important midfielders, including Mateo Kovacic and N'golo Kante, who left for Manchester City and Saudi Arabia, respectively.

Although the proposed payment for Gallagher is undoubtedly alluring, they should take care not to offload too many players and end up scrambling for reinforcements by the end of the window.
