Reports that Conor Gallagher is a player of interest to West Ham in the summer transfer window would appear to have some legs.
Both West Ham and Spurs have apparently “held early talks” with Chelsea over a possible transfer for the 23-year-old England international midfielder. Gallagher starred for Crystal Palace on loan two seasons ago but found a role in Chelsea’s first team a little harder to achieve last season. He made 18 starts in a season where Chelsea finished 12th. He’s been a rotation midfielder at Chelsea, but there’s a question of how much game time he will get under Mauricio Pochettino this coming season.s.
There aren’t any indications of what Gallagher would cost or even if Chelsea is willing to sell him at this stage but no smoke without fire.
West Ham claim they are tracking around twenty players in total and Gallagher could well be one of those twenty names of interest.
