Alan Shearer is tipping Conor Gallagher for a huge future due to the success he’s enjoying out on loan from Chelsea.
Gallagher, 21, seems to have made the best decision of his career so far by joining Crystal Palace this year on a season-long loan. It seems like every week the Blues-owned central midfielder is delivering top-class performances in a Palace shirt.
The box-to-box midfielder now has four goals and two assists in 10 Premier League appearances this season, scoring in Palace’s victory against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the weekend.
There are several talents shining away from Stamford Bridge out on loan, but he’s arguably the individual putting forward the biggest case to break into Thomas Tuchel’s squad next season. Alan Shearer has raved about the youngster on Chelsea’s books:
“The Chelsea loanee was brilliant for Palace yet again, scoring a great goal to wrap up the win. It’s been an outstanding season for the playmaker and there’s plenty more to come,” Shearer said.
Gallagher is well on the path to the Chelsea first team at this rate, if his Palace form can continue like this. Thomas Tuchel has been singing the youngsters praises this month. However, he’s suggesting Palace is the best place for him right now to continue developing his game.
