Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Conor Gallagher, with the Chelsea midfielder one of many players tipped to leave Stamford Bridge this summer.
According to the Independent, the 23-year-old is high on Jurgen Klopp’s summer shopping list as the German coach looks to revamp Liverpool’s midfield options, with Gallagher unable to crack into Chelsea’s starting XI on a regular basis under Graham Potter.
Despite being lauded as ‘fantastic’ by the Blues manager, Chelsea are set for a huge summer of selling as Potter looks to drastically reduce his squad size to something more manageable, and Gallagher could be moved on to make way for new signings.
And now, Liverpool have stepped up their interest in signing Gallagher, who could be a sensational option for Klopp as the Anfield boss looks to rebuild his midfield after a season to forget for the Merseyside giants, who travel to Chelsea on Tuesday night in the Premier League.
Indeed, whether the Blues will be willing to sell a top prospect to a direct rival is another question, yet for Gallagher, the chance to work under a coach like Klopp could be too good an option to turn down, with the German known for improving players on the training pitch.
Liverpool signing Gallagher could be a plausible deal this summer
Liverpool’s interest in Mason Mount has been well-documented this year, yet whilst the England international teases with the prospect of staying at Chelsea, Gallagher gives off the impression that he’s set to leave west London for good this summer, and this could make a transfer to Anfield very likely.
Younger than Mount and arguably more suited to what Liverpool need in the midfield, Gallagher has the potential to get his career back on track on Merseyside if Klopp can land his man this summer, with the player himself more than likely to want a move up north to improve his career.
