Rio Ferdinand urge Newcastle United to sign this Chelsea player

Newcastle United have been linked with a host of top stars due to their new-found wealth following a highly-publicised £305m Saudi takeover last week.

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has urged Newcastle United to sign highly-rated Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher, who is currently on loan at Crystal Palace.

Ferdinand told his YouTube show Vibe with Five: “[Kylian Mbappe] is just dreamland, but there’s people that would be on the periphery of the Man United squad, the Chelsea squad, the City squad. I’d be looking at players like that, I’d be all over those types of players.

“And then I’d be wanting to unearth some young talents probably from around the world that you think would be able to mix and blend in to that. Do you know who I’d go out and get now as well? I’d be going mad for young, English talent. The best young, English talent.

“Max Aarons, the right-back at Norwich, Under-21 player. Conor Gallagher, straight in there. Get him in there. They’re two names, straight away, young kids who I’d say they’re coming into Newcastle. I want young, English talent.

“Newcastle are an English club, I’d want a young core of English players.”
