Liverpool transfer: Liverpool tipped to secure signing of £40million “outstanding” Chelsea superstar
Liverpool should make moves to bring in a top-notch midfielder in the upcoming summer transfer window with Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher tipped to join the club.
Dean Saunders, a former striker for Anfield, believes that the Chelsea star can improve the nation’s top sides.
The 58-year-old told talkSPORT:
“If I was any of the top six I would sign him (Gallagher) and you know every day he is going to train properly. You can tell just by watching him and how he plays.”
“Crystal Palace fans will tell you, they watched him every week. Seven out of ten, sometimes nine out of ten but he never goes down to three or four out of ten. Because he works too hard.”
Former Aston Villa forward, Agbonlahor also praised the 22-year-old and stated:
“He is an outstanding player. He needs to find out from Thomas Tuchel ‘Am I going to play? Otherwise, there are so many clubs in the Premier League that are going to snap me up and I will have to leave’”
Gallagher was a huge success for Crystal Palace last season (on loan).
The teenage midfielder played in 34 league games and was directly responsible for 11 goals (8 goals and 3 assists).
Additionally, he made three starts and contributed two assists in the FA Cup.
He has, however, primarily warmed the bench for Chelsea. The England international only played against Everton for one minute and against Spurs for five minutes.
At the weekend, he did start against Leeds before being replaced in the second half.
The four-cap midfielder’s current deal with the Blues expires in 2025, and his market worth is estimated to be about £40 million (talkSPORT).
Liverpool is in severe need of an offensively capable center midfielder. Should the Reds intervene to sign Conor Gallagher?
