Newcastle: Magpies make Conor Gallagher ‘enquiry’

Newcastle: Magpies make Conor Gallagher ‘enquiry’ -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United are reportedly among the clubs to have made an ‘enquiry’ about signing Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher, report 90min

The lowdown: Wanted man

Following a stellar loan spell at Crystal Palace last season, Gallagher has been the subject of interest from numerous clubs this summer.

The 22-year-old England international has attracted attention from Everton, Aston Villa and indeed Palace once again, with another loan exit on the cards prior to the mid-season World Cup.

Now, having only made a brief appearance from the bench in the opening day victory over Everton it appears as though Newcastle and a host of Premier League rivals are testing the water surrounding Gallagher…

The latest: ‘Enquiry’ made

As per 90min, Newcastle, West Ham and Crystal Palace have all ‘enquired about the availability’ of the four-cap star.

The report states that the Magpies have ‘reached out’ to the capital city outfit with a view to signing the man hailed as ‘extraordinary’ by Thomas Tuchel either on a temporary or permanent basis.

However, it’s claimed that Chelsea ‘currently have no plans to allow’ Gallagher to leave the London club on loan or otherwise.

The verdict: Keep pushing

Whilst at present it appears as though a switch could be off the cards, a continued lack of game time could see the Englishman push for a move away, particularly with a place in Gareth Southgate’s squad on the line.

Linked elsewhere to James Maddison, it appears as though Eddie Howe is desperate to bolster the midfield department at St James’ Park, especially having lost Jonjo Shelvey to an injury that will rule out the ace for three months.

Only the biggest Newcastle fan will get 100% on this transfer quiz! First up, who was Craig Bellamy sold to?

Last season, Gallagher scored eight times and provided five assists in 39 appearances across all competitions for Palace, earning an impressive 7.08 Sofascore rating whilst winning 5.9 duels, completing 1.3 dribbles and making 1.1 key passes on average per outing in the league.

A combative presence, sharing similar stylistic traits to Newcastle star Joelinton (Fbref), adding the talented midfielder with seemingly boundless energy to Eddie Howe’s ranks would be a superb piece of business from the North East club.

Therefore, both Dan Ashworth and PIF should remain attentive to any opportunity to sign Gallagher before the September 1 deadline passes.
