This summer, after Connor Gallagher’s loan stint at West Bromwich Albion, Chelsea’s future is up in the air. The 21-year-old spent last season with the Hawthorn team and was the spark of a disappointing campaign, but due to fierce competition for places, he never got a chance to play for Chelsea. However,
Conor Gallagher’s efforts in the 2020/21 season have not been ignored, as Crystal Palace defeated Leeds United to obtain his signature. The Hawks finally rented Gallagher on a one-season loan after 12 months of his initial attempt and failure.
The highly-rated midfielder will be a valuable asset to the palace. He played 32 times for Albion last season, scoring 2 goals and sending 2 assists. Conor Gallagher created 20 opportunities in 30 league games, 30 successful dribbles, 23 aerial duels, 51 shots/passes/passes, 27 punts, 81 tackles, and 27 Intercept.
The England Under-21 international has more than four years of contract with Chelsea. It is highly rated, but there is almost no chance to beat N`Golo Kante, Jorginho, Mason Mount, and Mateo Kovacic in the engine room because they have to watch for A storm. Move to another place.
If Ross Barkley, Ruben Loftus Chick, and Timoue Bakayoko can’t see Chelsea, how can Gallagher have a chance? All you can do now is to impress at Palace and hope this is enough to impress the scouts you see.
A good showing for a struggling club like West Brom last season should keep them in good shape this season. Gallagher will be dealing with some talented people and should benefit from the improvement of his teammates.
It remains to be seen if Gallagher has a long-term future at Chelsea, but he has proven he belongs at this level anyway.
The 21-year-old was loaned to Charlton Athletic (Aug 2019-Jan 2020) and Swansea City (Jan 2020-Jul 2020) before joining Albion, so he can get the necessary first-team experience Anytime and anywhere.
