Barcelona plotting move for highly-rated Chelsea midfielder

Barcelona are allegedly eyeing a deal for Chelsea loanee and current Crystal Palace player Conor Gallagher.

The Englishman enjoyed an impressive stint on loan at West Brom from Chelsea last campaign, in spite of the Baggies suffering relegation.

And the star was sent out on loan again in the summer, this time signing for the Eagles aiming to achieve a little more than just survival.

It has been a mixed start to the campaign for the club, picking up five points from as many matches under new boss Patrick Vieira.

But Conor has been one of the stunning figures, featuring in four of his team’s five Premier League games thus far.

And according to a report from Spanish outlet Fichajes, he’s already catching the eye of the European giants on the back of his performances.

It’s stated Barcelona could be keen on a permanent move for the talented Chelsea star, monitoring his situation.

He could be a relatively cheap option for Blaugrana given their financial crisis that will likely restrict the club in transfer windows to come.

Though, it is unlikely the Blues are going to want to lose him, especially considering the consistency he’s showing in the top-flight at the age of 21.
