A report from England over the weekend has credited Crystal Palace with an interest in Conor Gallagher.
Conor Gallagher & Chelsea
Conor Gallagher is just one of countless talented players to have come through Chelsea’s youth system over recent years.
Also like many others, though, Gallagher is yet to taste senior football with his parent club.
Instead, he has been farmed out on a series of loans – to Charlton, Swansea and, most recently, West Brom for the 2020/21 season.
Of course, West Brom did not enjoy the best of campaigns, and are set for a swift return to the Championship.
However, Gallagher still looked fairly impressive, with the midfielder having chipped in with two goals and two assists across 30 Premier League outings for the Baggies.
But what does the future hold for the midfielder ahead of next season?
Gallagher’s current Chelsea contract runs all the way until 2025. A report from Goal earlier this year also claimed that the Londoners hold the 21-year-old in high regard, with Gallagher a frontrunner to be integrated into Thomas Tuchel’s squad for 2021/22.
Crystal Palace eyeing Gallagher
A media report this weekend, however, has suggested that Gallagher could be on the move this summer.
According to the Sun, Crystal Palace will make a £15m bid for the Chelsea midfielder over the coming weeks.
Gallagher, for his part, is said to want to stay at Chelsea, in an effort to impress Thomas Tuchel.
The Sun, though, add that Palace have the cash for new faces and need fresh legs in midfield, with Gallagher viewed as a player who could be pivotal for years to come.
This would probably be a smart bit of business on the part of the Eagles, if they can get the youngster on the cheap, as the London-based outfit have a pretty old squad that needs to be revived if they hope to continue in the Premier League.
