Signing “unreal” 22-year-old from Chelsea for £50m an absolute no-brainer for West Ham


West Ham must go all out to sign talented midfielder Conor Gallagher from Chelsea in the summer transfer window.

The 22-year-old Chelsea star has been on loan with Crystal Palace this season and boy has he impressed. Palace ace Wilfried Zaha has described the England international as an ‘unreal’ player (The Metro).

What a talented young player he is. And West Ham need to be going all out for the Chelsea ace in the summer window.

David Moyes desperately needs to bolster his central midfield ranks at the London Stadium.

Mark Noble is set to retire whilst Alex Kral will almost certainly be sent back to Spartak Moscow.

And signing Conor Gallagher from Chelsea would be a hugely exciting bit of transfer business from West Ham.

The 22-year-old Chelsea midfielder has been lighting it up during his loan spell with Crystal Palace this season.

Gallagher has bagged eight goals and three assists in 26 Premier League games for Palace (Transfermarkt).

During those appearances, the 22-year-old has averaged 2.4 tackles, 1.7 dribbles and 1.3 key passes per game (Who Scored).

He has incredible energy, drive, passion, determination and commitment to the cause. On top of all that as well, Gallagher is incredibly gifted from a technical perspective.

The Chelsea ace would be the ideal accompaniment to Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek in the middle of the park.

West Ham should be doing everything we can to prise the Chelsea midfielder away from Stamford Bridge this summer.

Thomas Tuchel will demand around £50 million for the 22-year-old’s signature according to Goal.

That sounds like an awful lot of money but we actually believe that it would represent good value for the Hammers.

Moyes is allegedly prepared to pay £60 million to sign Leeds ace Kalvin Phillips (The Sun and The Times).

Bringing Gallagher in from Chelsea for £10 million less than what Phillips would cost is an absolute no-brainer for West Ham. He’s four years younger for a start, and is an all-round better player.

The dynamic of this conversation may well change if West Ham decide to cash in on Declan Rice. Let’s just assume that we manage to keep Dec though.

Bringing in Gallagher from Chelsea for £50 million this summer would be a real statement of intent from West Ham.
