According to several reports, Chelsea youngster Conor Gallagher could get his first-team appearance for the blues if he impresses well this season. Currently playing, on loan to Crystal Palace, the midfielder has scored two goals and one assist in his last three games.
Conor Gallagher has been associated with Chelsea since his young days as he joined the Blues youth camp. Moving up the ranks he played for the Chelsea under-18 side and then under-23 side. But he is yet to make his first appearance for the Blues senior side.
Chelsea thinking of giving the youngster more game time and first-team experience send him to three loan spells. While he is on his fourth loan spell currently, as he joined Crystal Palace this summer. In Gallagher’s first loan spell to Charlton Athletic, he appeared 26 times, scoring 6 goals and 4 assists.
Moving on to the second he was sent to Swansea City, he appeared 21 times, assisting 7 goals. And spent his last season at West Bromwich Albion, appearing 32 times, scoring and assisting 2 times. Coming to Chelsea after his loan spell ended, he thought he might get his first start, but the blues had other plans. As they sent him on another loan to Crystal Palace where he has till now appeared 4 times, scoring 2 goals and 1 assist.
However, Conor Gallagher’s dream of starting for Chelsea might be fulfilled next season. Seeing his recent performances, the Blues have decided to give him a chance to prove himself next season. And there is no doubt that the youngster will give his all to be a regular starter in the team.
Conor Gallagher could weigh up Chelsea’s midfield options
Chelsea in current times has only four true options in the midfield consisting of N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, and Saul Niguezz. While Kante is already out of the team after suffering an injury. Following this, we can see the blues lack depth in terms of midfield options.
This is where Conor Gallagher will come in handy to Chelsea and Thomas Tuchel. The youngster has already proven he is ready to start for the senior team. Following his goal-scoring ability, assist-making, and creative passing from the midfield. Now, it is just a matter of time as we can see Conor Gallagher making his senior debut for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
