Leeds fans react as club reportedly in talks to sign Chelsea player, Patrick Vieira has held FaceTime
Leeds United have reportedly held talks to sign Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher this summer, after an impressive loan spell at West Brom. However, the Whites are not alone in pursuit of Gallagher – with Crystal Palace also in talks. Leeds fans have reacted to Gallagher on Twitter.
Gallagher, 21, was a rare shining light in a West Brom side that failed to stave off the threat of relegation during 2020-21. His combative performances in midfield alongside Romaine Sawyers and Matheus Pereira gave Baggies fans hope. But ultimately, it was too much to overturn.
Now, the nine-time England Under-21 international returns to Chelsea with his future next to a question mark. Does he stay at Chelsea and fight for his place under Thomas Tuchel, especially with Billy Gilmour joining Norwich? Or does he further his development and join another Premier League team?
What are Leeds fans saying about Chelsea midfielder Gallagher?
Football London claim Leeds spoke to Gallagher a few weeks ago and gave an intriguing presentation – which is said to have impressed the player. More recently, it is said that Patrick Vieira spoke to Gallagher on FaceTime ahead of a potential loan to Palace. Both clubs remain very much keen.
Leeds fans have reacted on Twitter to the reports that their club want to raid Chelsea for a second time this summer – after signing Lewis Bate. With talks underway over a loan move, many Leeds fans would want to see a permanent clause. One fan said Bielsa would ‘work wonders’ with him.
If a permanent deal was orchestrated – then he could cost £15million, according to The Sun.
