Chelsea fans react as Newcastle reportedly eye £14million move to sign midfielder Conor Gallagher

Newcastle United are reportedly eyeing a £14million move to sign Chelsea star Conor Gallagher – and Blues fans have reacted on Twitter to the news.

Gallagher, 21, has been sensational for Palace since joining Patrick Vieira’s side on a season-long loan. He is already crucial to Palace’s system.

The midfielder made his name initially at Swansea in the Championship, producing seven assists in 21 games during a half-season loan.

Then, he joined West Brom last term on loan and was a rare shining light in a side that were relegated. His form earned him a move to Selhurst Park.

His form continues to rise. Already, he has three goal involvements – a brace against West Ham, before winning a penalty against Tottenham.

What are Chelsea fans saying as Newcastle eye Gallagher?

Well, The Mail says Newcastle are keen – while FL claim Chelsea value Gallagher at £14m. A bargain, for a player of his form and quality.

That has not been overlooked by Blues fans on social media. While the majority are willing to wave goodbye to Gallagher, they want a fair price.

Many named their price for Gallagher – perhaps, also, because Newcastle’s new owners make the Toon the richest club in world football, right now.
