Crystal Palace on the brink of signing 20-year-old Chelsea midfielder

By | September 2, 2020

The London giants midfielder Conor Gallagher is reportedly poised to complete a loan transfer to Crystal Palace after undergoing a medical with the club. The 20-year-old midfielder had his medical with Crystal Palace on the weekend, with a deal surely now imminent.

Conor seems an excellent teenager who could do well to play more regularly with a move to another PL club lower down in the table. Gallagher will spend the campaign on loan at Selhurst Park, and Blues supporters will be hoping he can make an impact in Roy Hodgson’s side.

Chelsea have increasingly turned to their academy in recent times in order to get footballers into their first-team, so fans will hope U21 England international can follow the likes of Tammy Abraham, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Mason Mount, Reece James and Billy Gilmour into Lampard’s senior side.

The Guardian also provides an update on Kai Havertz’s move to the London club in what has been a busy transfer window for the Blues. Chelsea have made big changes to their squad with high-profile moves for Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell and Thiago Silva.

The English midfielder enjoyed two successful loan spells away from the London giants the last term. The 2017 U-17 World Cup winner spent the first half of the term at Charlton, where he chipped in with six goals and four assists in 26 matches.

Conor then made the move to Swansea midway through January, where he provided seven assists in 19 games for the Welsh outfit. And we also told you how Bundesliga clubs Schalke, Mainz and Arminia were also keeping tabs on the midfielder.
