Now, the Eagles have managed to get Gallagher to speak to Vieira, according to Football London.

However, in Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds, there is a very tough competitor for the Chelsea man’s services.

Football London believe Leeds put together a very impressive presentation in a bid to convince Gallagher to join them.

It’s possible that neither Crystal Palace or Leeds sign Gallagher.

Football London add that he’s extremely keen to break into Chelsea’s first-team and impress Thomas Tuchel during pre-season.

That could throw a spanner in the works for Vieira and Bielsa, if Gallagher does go on to enjoy an eye-catching pre-season, that is.

However, Football London mention that he is still assessing the options in front of him, as he doesn’t want to be a benchwarmer in 2021/22.

Let’s see how the Crystal Palace fans on Twitter reacted to the news…
