Joe Cole sends advice to Mauricio Pochettino

Former Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole has emphasized the importance of midfielder Conor Gallagher to Chelsea, saying he wants the Blues to keep this player.

Midfielder Conor Gallagher is an important factor in Mauricio Pochettino's squad this season, he has appeared 26 times since the beginning of the season, including 24 starts. In the absence of Reece James and Ben Chilwell, the midfielder was given the Blues captain's armband.

The England international has only 18 months left on his contract with Chelsea, negotiations on an extension have not yet progressed. Therefore, Chelsea is considering selling Gallagher this January, thereby earning some money to invest in new deals.

Tottenham have been linked with the 23-year-old, with Crysyal Palace and West Ham also ready to make offers. Chelsea is said to want £45 million for their star. Most recently, former Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole emphasized the importance of Gallagher to Chelsea, saying:

“Conor Gallagher is an important player and the face of the club. He is Chelsea's vice-captain, one of the team's leaders. Taking him out of the team now would not be good. Gallagher has a bright future at Chelsea. I think what Jordan Henderson was important to Liverpool, Gallagher is to Chelsea."

Gallagher and his teammates are preparing to enter the second leg of the English League Cup semi-final against Middlesbrough at home. In the first leg, Chelsea lost 0-1, and they had to win at home if they wanted to win tickets to the next round.

Joe Cole added: “ This is a match that Chelsea must win to have a chance of playing in their first final under Pochettino. Since winning the Champions League we have lost two or three finals and we don't want that to continue. But before playing in the final, you need to get through the semi-finals."
