According to Daily Mail, Chelsea are to hold talks over a new contract for highly-rated Conor Gallagher amid interest from several Premier League clubs.

The 20 year old midfielder impressed last season while on loan at Charlton Athletic (in the first half of the season) and Swansea City. Gallagher played 19 times to help Steve Cooper’s men finish 6th and set up a play-off semi against Brentford.

But despite winning the first leg 1-0, Swansea collapsed at Griffin Park to lose 3-2 on aggregate.

Gallagher, whose current deal runs until 2022 is wanted by Crystal Palace, Newcastle United, Leeds United and Aston Villa among others.

The Blues are open to letting the midfielder leave the club on loan this summer only after extending his Chelsea contract.
