In a recent report, Mirror stated that Everton are eyeing a move for Conor Gallagher from Chelsea who is currently on a loan spell at Crystal Palace. It has also been mentioned that Lampard’s connections with Chelsea could be of use in luring the midfielder to Goodison Park.

Gallagher’s Impressive Loan Spell at Crystal Palace This Season

Conor Gallagher has given a good account of himself as a first-team starter in the Crystal Palace outfit this campaign. The 22-year-old has scored eight goals and created three assists over 34 appearances in the Premier League this season.

The England-born talent has averaged 2.0 tackles, 0.9 interceptions, 0.7 clearances, 1.5 shots, 1.1 key passes and 1.3 dribbles per game in the English top flight. However, he has been accurate when distributing the ball from midfield after making 81.6% of his attempted passes in Premier League football (stats via whoscored).

How Will The Attacking Midfielder Add On To Everton Boss Frank Lampard’s Starting XI?

Gallagher doesn’t shy away from tackles and has a high contribution to defence as he often helps his team earn the ball back from the opposition. The English talent can make some decent runs with the ball from midfield but has to be more confident in distributing the ball.

Everton boss Frank Lampard could bring in the attacking midfielder promising him regular football at Goodison Park as he would look to replace Allan whose form is declining evidently.

At 22, Gallagher has got a bright future ahead of him which makes him a decent option for the Toffees to consider this summer. He will definitely add more bite and steel to Lampard’s midfield and increase competition at the Merseyside club.

Hence, Everton should give in their everything to lure Gallagher to Goodison Park during this summer transfer period as Lampard plans to steer his club to higher ranks in the Premier League standings after what seemed to be a disjointed season as they narrowly escaped from the dreaded relegation zone.
