Report: Serie A manager tells Chelsea he would love to sign 22-year-old Blues loanee for next season

Jose Mourinho’s reportedly informed Chelsea he would love to sign Conor Gallagher on loan for next season.

According to TEAMtalk, Serie A club Roma are interested in signing 22-year-old talent Gallagher this summer.

The England international, who’s currently impressing out on loan with Crystal Palace, reportedly hopes to play for Chelsea when he returns to Stamford Bridge. It’s still unclear on what Blues boss Thomas Tuchel has planned for him, though.

TEAMtalk explains Roma manager Mourinho has told his ex-club that he’d jump at the chance to sign Gallagher if he becomes available on loan again. In addition, the young midfielder may be open to a move abroad if his immediate future is still blocked at Chelsea.

Roma has a decent relationship with the London club after signing centre-forward Tammy Abraham from them last summer.

Gallagher is a rising talent that a lot of the Blues fanbase wants to get an opportunity at the Bridge next season, but it’s unknown on what his future will look like.

The England international has been a genuine goalscoring midfielder in the Premier League with Palace, as well someone with an immense work rate and attitude.

Gallagher perfect for PL

It’s no surprise to hear Roma’s interest in Gallagher. However, he’s tailor-made for the Premier League division not Serie A.

The all-action midfielder has an incredible engine that allows him to run flat out for 90 minutes and provide a constant pain to the opposition.

Tuchel must take a close look at the Blues loanee when he reunites with the group for pre-season because he ticks so many boxes as a player.

Hopefully, the door opens for him to make a first-team breakthrough and join fellow academy graduates.
