Swansea to snap up Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher

Swansea City are set to land Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea are close to agreeing a loan deal with Swansea City for Gallagher following his recall from Charlton Athletic.

The 19-year-old has been catching the eye with his energetic displays in the middle of the park for the Addicks, scoring six goals in 26 games, leading to comparisons with his Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.

The Welsh outfit are knocking on the door of the play-off spots after making a strong start to the league season under Steve Cooper.

Gallagher is well known to Cooper having featured in his young England team that won the Under-17 World Cup in 2017.

Following his recall, the teenager was linked with a host of sides, including Burnley, Norwich and West Brom, but Chelsea are keen for him to link up with Cooper.
