Newcastle and Everton told to go and sign Chelsea's Conor Gallagher
Newcastle and Everton have been tipped to make a move for Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher, who could end up leaving the Blues.
With Todd Boehly splashing the cash at Chelsea, there is a need for the Blues to offload some players either now, or in the summer window. A host of names are being tipped to potentially leave, including the likes of Aubameyang, Sterling, and Christian Pulisic.
However, writing in his column for CaughtOffside, Stan Collymore believes that Conor Gallagher is another who could be shown the exit door. And with that, he thinks the likes of Everton and Newcastle would be keen.
“In terms of players leaving, they’ll want to keep a large chunk of their homegrown British players but Conor Gallagher is one I can see being moved on. If it were up to me, I’d let him go, either out on loan or permanently. He’s a player they could get a really good fee for and they’d not be short of suitors. The likes of Everton, Aston Villa, and maybe even Newcastle United, would all probably be interested,” Collymore wrote for CaughtOffside.
Gallagher enjoyed a fine season with Crystal Palace last season. The Eagles then tried to sign him for £27m in the summer, only to see their offer rebuffed.
TBR’s View: Gallagher would shine for Everton or Newcastle
Thomas Tuchel lauded Gallagher as being a ‘fantastic‘ player and there is plenty to like about the Chelsea man.
At Chelsea, Gallagher is trying his best to really have an impression. But with Graham Potter’s side struggling in general, his efforts are proving to be a bit in vain.
A move away would suit Gallagher. He kicked on at Palace as he was a key player and got minutes. Both Everton and Newcastle might offer him that, and he’d be a fine signing for either.
