Crystal Palace want to sign Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher.
The 21-year old has already had Premier League experience, having spent last season on loan wit West Brom. And, although they were relegated at the end of the season, Gallagher generally impressed.
Palace were linked with a move for him last summer and, although that did not come to fruition, they are ready to make a bid of £15 million for him, which might tempt Chelsea to part with him.
Gallagher wants to stay at Chelsea to try and force his way into Thomas Tuchel’s plans, but the Stamford Bridge side may be tempted to cash in on him now to free up more money for their squad reinforcement.
The South London club are currently without a manager – Roy Hodgson retired ay the end of last season and they have yet to announce his replacement, despite being linked with a host of names.
