According to reports, Chelsea are set to allow young English midfielder Conor Gallagher and Scottish midfielder Billy Gilmour opportunities to break into the Chelsea team this season, per Fichajes.
Both players are on loan at Crystal Palace and Norwich respectively and have already started impressing for their respecting teams.
Conor Gallagher already has 2 goals and 1 assist for Crystal Palace after 5 Premier League games. Meanwhile, Billy Gilmour has shone like a thousand stars in a very poor Norwich team.
It is a great experience being gannered by both players, adding to the few international caps and experience Billy Gilmour has. Gallagher has no international cap at senior level yet but his recent performances has had him knocking at the doors of England manager Gareth Southgate.
It is not quite clear how both players will fit in at Chelsea though as the Blues already have one of the deepest squads in Europe. Chelsea currently have Jorginho, Kovacic, Kanté, Saúl all fighting for the two central midfield spots this season and the return of Ruben Loftus-Cheeck to form and full fitness is about to make things even more interesting.
Conor Gallagher meanwhile would have to battle it out with the likes of Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic and co for an attacking position next season. It is though possible that Chelsea would cash in on any of the underperforming attackers to give way for Gallagher in Tuchel’s squad.
