Premier League side Burnley are leading the race to sign Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher after watching the midfielder’s impressive displays on loan at Charlton, according to Daily Mail.

The 19 year old midfielder has scored six goals for Charlton in 23 appearances. The youngster’s style of play has been compared to Frank Lampard, due to his ability to arrive in the box and provide a goal threat. 

Gallagher is highly rated at Chelsea and its highly unlikely Chelsea boss Frank Lampard will sanction a permanent transfer to Burnley for the 19 year old.
