Borussia Dortmund is rumored to be interested in signing Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher as a potential replacement for departing midfielders Jude Bellingham and Mahmoud Dahoud. Gallagher, who showcased his talent during a loan spell at Crystal Palace in the 2021/22 season. Has struggled to secure a regular place in the Chelsea lineup. However, his future with the club remains uncertain.
Although Gallagher’s playing time at Chelsea has been limited. The club is reportedly reluctant to part ways with him at a low cost. This could potentially make him an expensive acquisition for Dortmund at the moment. As per information shared by Florian Plettenberg, a journalist from Sky Germany.
Gallagher could surely be a fine signing for Dortmund and a number of other clubs. But it’s not yet clear who will make the strongest move for him and meet Chelsea’s demands.
The 23-year-old could have a bright future in the game, but he’ll surely want this uncertainty over his future to be resolved as soon as possible so he can focus on his football and fulfil his potential.
Borussia Dortmund and their need for a midfielder
Sport BILD reports that Borussia Dortmund has included Conor Gallagher in their list of summer transfer targets. Alongside Edson Álvarez and Felix Nmecha.
According to the magazine, Dortmund would need to pay a transfer fee higher than their previous record in order to secure Gallagher’s signature. Surpassing the expected asking price for Álvarez. Whether Dortmund’s management would be willing to invest such a significant amount of money for Gallagher remains to be seen.
