Burnley Football Club are leading the chase to sign Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher on loan in the transfer window, Gallagher has been impressing on loan at Charlton Athletic. The nineteen year old midfielder is seen as the next big prospect at Stamford Bridge and his displays in the Sky Bet Championship have been earning him rave reviews.
Gallagher, has scored six goals for the Addicks in 23 appearances for Lee Bowyer’s men and his style of play has been compared to his manager Frank Lampard, with his ability to arrive in the box and provide a goal threat. His performances so far this season have been enough to interest Burnley manager Sean Dyche.
Having been included in Chelsea’s UEFA Cup Final team the youngster already has a UEFA Cup Winners medal. Chelsea reportedly have an option to recall Gallagher from his loan spell at Charlton Athletic if they wish to cash in on the star. However the current Chelsea manager Frank Lampard would be reluctant to sell a youngster with huge potential, especially given his policy to field youth players this season.
