The England international is currently out with the team in America on their pre-season tour, and he will be out there hoping to further impress the boss ahead of the pending new season.
Sources: Levi Colwill does NOT want to leave Chelsea.
He has recently revealed that after a phone call with Tuchel, that they both agreed that he will be in the first team squad this season and be given a shot with Chelsea, which is music to my ears to be honest.
Conor Gallagher will be part of Chelsea’s squad this season:
“I said to him [Tuchel] I’m ready to play for Chelsea. It was a phone call at the end of the season. We both got out of the phone call what we needed. It was clear after that.” – Gallagher.https://t.co/Q5jo1pOhpT pic.twitter.com/Q8s8vJDxYl

Gallagher bumped into Tuchel in a pub in April during a night out with his girlfriend and parents, as per The Telegraph.
It was in this meeting that Tuchel apologised to Gallagher for not granting a request for him to play against his parent club for Palace in last season’s FA Cup semi-final.
Gallagher said of the meeting: “I was trying to hide! It was funny because I saw him through the window and whispered to my girlfriend, mum and dad ‘God, it’s Thomas Tuchel walking in’. He walked in and sat on the table right next to us, so he couldn’t miss me.”
