Chelsea’s stance on selling Conor Gallagher after his outstanding first two weeks in the Premier League.


Chelsea’s stance on selling Conor Gallagher after the new England star’s outstanding first two weeks.

Conor Gallagher has been one of the Premier League’s most impressive players so far this season.

“SIGN HIM UP, SIGN HIM UP,” chanted the Crystal Palace fans last week as Conor Gallagher lit up Selhurst Park once again. The on-loan Chelsea midfielder scored Palace’s second goal via a kind deflection off Conor Coady, but it was a totally deserved effort after yet another outstanding display, as his team rose to tenth place in the Premier League table.

Gallagher scored his fourth goal in ten league games since joining them on a season-long loan during the summer as one of new manager Patrick Vieira’s seven new additions to a completely reshaped squad.

When Roy Hodgson was in charge of Palace, they tried to sign Gallagher on loan the previous summer but were beaten to it by West Bromwich Albion, where the Surrey-born midfielder once again shone, despite the Midlanders’ relegation.

Palace would love to have Gallagher on a permanent basis, but Chelsea knows what they have and will not sell.

Because Thomas Tuchel wants Gallagher in his squad next season, there is no option to buy at the end of the contract.

But what a few weeks for the eight-year-old Chelsea fan.

He was off to England’s Under 21s to help them beat the Czech Republic 3-1 at Turf Moor last Thursday, just a few days after helping Palace beat Wolves.

The all-action Gallagher was suddenly in the England team, coming on as a half-time substitute for Kalvin Phillips and almost scoring on his debut as England won 10-0.

As far as a ten-day period goes, it’s not bad at all.

Gallagher, who turns 22 in February, immediately praised Vieira after the game for how he has used his strengths to get into the penalty area this season.

Former England defender Jonathan Woodgate has dubbed Gallagher’s arrival at Selhurst Park the best signing of the season so far, and few would disagree.

Gallagher is relentless in his pursuit of perfection.

There have been two assists, 321 passes, 44 crosses, 26 tackles, 62% of which have been won, and two assists for Palace this season.
