Liverpool FC told to sign Chelsea midfielder to replace Jordan Henderson
Chelsea FC star who is currently on loan at crystal palace Conor Gallagher has been backed to replace Jordan Henderson at Liverpool.
The youngster has been astonishing this season while on loan with Palace from Chelsea. In 34 appearances in all competitions so far this season, scoring 8 goals and assisting 5 times.
Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira has made it clear he has no intention of keeping Gallagher at Selhurst Park next season.
However, Queens Park Rangers (QPR) forward Charlie Austin believes Liverpool would be an ideal fit for the 22-year-old.
He told talkSPORT: “I think for any football team would love to have Conor Gallagher.
“He’s so energetic, you look at him the way he plays, I think a lot of football fans see him play and would think ‘I would like him to be at my club’.”
“I say yes,” when asked if he would want him at Anfield. “I said he would be, not a replacement, not saying this for Jordan Henderson.
“But when Jordan moves on, or retires, or comes into a new football role, he [Gallagher] would be great for Liverpool.”
Before he added: “Him coming to Chelsea, I think it’s a perfect opportunity for him. As players, when an opportunity comes, you’ve got to take them and this one, I think Conor Gallagher will be looking at, as well as his representatives.
“Whether they are thinking what we can do next year. I think he will be looking at it and thinking: ‘I’m going to try my best and give everything at Chelsea.’”
