Conor Gallagher of Chelsea is reportedly Newcastle’s “prime target” for the remainder of the summer.
Gallagher excelled while on loan at Crystal Palace the previous season. The Englishman undoubtedly had a significant impact on the Premier League, though it did gradually wane as the season went on.
Now that Gallagher is back at Stamford Bridge, he intends to contend with Thomas Tuchel for a starting position. The three main midfielders standing in his way are Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante, and Jorginho.
Due to the intense competition for spots, the 22-year-old may find it difficult to establish himself as a regular with the first team. And this is giving some Premier League clubs hope that they can sign him, either permanently or on loan.
Palace is eager to finish a reunion. However, it appears that the Eagles are considering other players.
Instead, the front-runners for Gallagher are Newcastle and West Ham. Both teams have reportedly enquired about a transfer to Chelsea, according to a recent report from 90Min.
As the transfer window enters its final few weeks, Newcastle officials have identified Gallagher as a “prime targe,” according to reports.
