A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Gazzetta Dello Sport mentioned that Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher is gathering interest from Italy with AS Roma eyeing a move for him this summer. It has been claimed that the Blues talent, who is currently playing on loan at Crystal Palace, is on the radar of the Italian outfit ahead of the summer transfer window.

Gallagher’s Impressive Loan Spell At Crystal Palace This Season

Gallagher is having a brilliant campaign at Selhurst Park as he has put in a run of eye-catching displays while acting as a key member of Patrick Viera’s midfield. The 22-year-old has banged in eight goals and grabbed five assists in 30 matches for the Eagles this season on all fronts.

The English midfield ace has given a good account of himself by averaging 2.4 tackles, 0.9 interceptions, 0.8 clearances, 1.7 shots, 1.4 key passes and 1.3 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Premier League. He has even been tidy when distributing possession from midfield after making 81.8% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).

Should Chelsea Cash In On Gallagher This Summer?

Gallagher can do a bit of everything at the centre of the park. He is a solid tackler of the ball and loves to get stuck in with a few challenges to earn possession back for his team. The English sensation can also make some intelligent runs with the ball towards the opponent’s penalty box and has chipped in by scoring and creating some important goals for his team this season.

At the moment, Gallagher is playing at a high level. Thus, it is no wonder that AS Roma are monitoring his progress at Selhurst Park.

At 22, Gallagher has got a very bright future ahead of him which makes him a good option for Chelsea to retain for the long-run. The English attacker has got what it takes to grow into a future star under the expert stewardship of Thomas Tuchel.

With all things considered, the Blues would be wise to not cash in on Gallagher as he would have a far better resale value when he hits his peak years at Stamford Bridge in the coming seasons.
