According to transfer news from IB Times, Chelsea starlet Conor Gallagher will evaluate his future at the club amidst interest from Crystal Palace. The youngster is back to Chelsea after his loan spell but understands that chances may not be on offer at the club. He is prepared to leave on loan, with Crystal Palace showing interest.

This past season, Gallagher was allowed to leave on loan as newly-promoted West Brom came for him. Despite the doom and gloom surrounding the Baggies, Gallagher was one of their best players last season. The Englishman has featured in 30 of 38 league games for them, scoring and assisting twice.

Now, given that he is back at Chelsea, the 21-year-old Gallagher is hoping to break into the first-team after his exploits last season. However, the promising talent is also keeping open the option of heading out on loan. Three other midfielders have also returned from loan deals and are hoping to make an impression on Tuchel. Nonetheless, Crystal Palace are among the sides wanting to take him on loan.
