West Ham signing 'unreal' 22-year-old from Chelsea for £30m an absolute no-brainer

West Ham United signing Conor Gallagher from Chelsea in the summer transfer window should be an absolute no-brainer.

Hammers boss David Moyes wants to bring the 22-year-old Chelsea midfielder to the London Stadium this summer according to a report from The Daily Star.

We have extensively covered how Gallagher would be an exceptional addition to Moyes’s West Ham ranks before there start of the new season.

And Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is allegedly prepared to let him leave Stamford Bridge this summer according to The Express.

Mark Noble has retired whilst Alex Kral’s loan spell has unsurprisingly ended. David Moyes is down to the bare bones regarding his central midfield options.

So signing a top-class central midfielder will be crucial before the transfer window slams shut in seven week’s time…

West Ham signing Chelsea ace a no-brainer

If Moyes isn’t looking very closely at Conor Gallagher then he should be.

Considering the fact that the 22-year-old is available this summer, signing him from Chelsea should be one of the most obvious transfers that we make.

We believe that the midfielder would be an exceptional addition for West Ham.

Gallagher was in absolutely brilliant form during his loan spell with Crystal Palace last season.

He bagged eight goals and five assists in 39 games for Palace (Transfermarkt).

During those appearances, the 22-year-old averaged 2.4 tackles, 1.7 dribbles and 1.3 key passes per game (Who Scored).

He has incredible energy, drive, passion, determination and commitment to the cause. On top of all that as well, Gallagher is incredibly gifted from a technical perspective.

The Chelsea ace would be the ideal accompaniment to Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek in the middle of the park.

His form undoubtedly tailed off during the final few months of last season, but his talent still remains.

The 22-year-old’s quality and potential is unquestionable.

Chelsea will demand around £30 million for the midfielder this summer (The Express).

And West Ham signing the Chelsea ace for around that kind of figure would be good business in my view.

Whether the Hammers board will be prepared to pay anything like that for Conor Gallagher remains to be seen though.
