Chelsea hero Joe Cole: I've worked with Gallagher - he has it all

Chelsea hero Joe Cole says Conor Gallagher can make England's World Cup squad next year.

The Chelsea midfielder, currently on-loan at Crystal Palace, won a first cap with England last week.

Speaking to Coral bookmakers, Cole enthused: "I've worked with Conor Gallagher and he is such a talented footballer. He has got it all.

"He can play box-to-box, like he is at Palace and where I think his best position is, but he can also play number eight or number ten with his back to goal.

"Chelsea won't sell him. I see him in that similar role to Kovacic at Chelsea but with the ability to score more goals than Kovacic.

"They will take him back at the end of the season and he will be playing in the first team. He's got a great chance of playing for England at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar."
