Chelsea are hoping that Crystal Palace loanee Conor Gallagher can step up into the first-team at Stamford Bridge next season.
And, as to be expected, a number of Palace fans have been reacting to the news on social media.
Gallagher has made quite the impression at Selhurst Park following his season-long loan move in the summer.
Is Conor Gallagher Crystal Palace's most important player?
As a result, the midfielder was named Palace’s Player of the Month for August, however, a permanent move to the club doesn’t look likely.
According to Eurosport, cited by The Daily Express, Chelsea have total belief in Gallagher and will reward him with a first-team opportunity under Thomas Tuchel next season if he continues his impressive form under Patrick Vieira.
Palace fans react
@CPFCtransfersHQ shared the news regarding Gallagher on Twitter on Wednesday evening. This is what these Eagles supporters had to say in reply…
“Pain. Just pure pain.”
“No no no don’t be true”
“Enjoy it whilst it lasts then lads”
“Chuck the 20 mil at them now lads”
“Of course our fans are believing this. Yeah because he’s gonna get in over Jorginho, Kovacic, Kante and Saul.”
