Roma are eyeing up a move for Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher in the summer transfer market, according to Calciomercato.
The Englishman is having a stellar time at his current club Crystal Palace, where the player is on loan from the Blues.
He has blossomed into one of the rising stars in the country under Patrick Vieira, netting eight times and providing five assists across all competitions for the south London side.
Tipped to have a big future in the game, Conor will be returning to Stamford Bridge this summer. At the same time, though, a lot of top clubs are likely to explore the opportunity to land him.
There is rumoured interest from Jose Mourinho’s side, who are plotting a summer approach to snap him up.
It is unclear whether the Serie A giants want him on a temporary or permanent basis, which would be possible for a significant transfer sum.
Roma are interested in bolstering their roster in the summer, with the attacking midfield zone, in particular, needing strengthening.
Talent Nicolo Zaniolo could be on his way out of the club, while veteran Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s contract runs out at the end of the term.
It would leave I Giallorossi short on options in this department, leading to their reported interest in Conor.
