Conor Gallagher transfer news – odds: Newcastle, Everton and West Ham trail Crystal Palace for £40m-rated Chelsea star | The Sun

CRYSTAL PALACE are favourites to sign Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher.

That's according to Sky Bet, who've priced Patrick Vieira's side at 3/1 to clinch the player's signature.

However, there's plenty of competition with just over two weeks of the transfer window remaining.

Newcastle are second-favourites at 4/1 with lead West Ham (6/1) and Aston Villa (9/1) the last at single-figure prices.

Everton are offered at 12/1, ahead of Leicester (22/1), Fulham (25/1) and Wolves (25/1), whole Brentford and Leeds trail at 33/1 and 40/1 respectively.

Gallagher returned to Stamford Bridge after a hugely successful spell at Selhurst Park.

The 22-year-old scored eight goals and provided five assists in 39 appearances, winning their Player of the Season award.

He also received his first four international caps under England manager Gareth Southgate.

But under Thomas Tuchel, he's made two cameo appearances, totalling six minutes.

His lack of first-team action could force him to re-evaluate his situation, and may need to head out on loan to stand a chance of making the World Cup.

The Eagles are favourites, but those odds could soon shift as SunSport understand that Newcastle have made Gallagher their prime target.

The Toon will now step up their efforts to persuade Chelsea to sell their £40m-rated midfielder.

Blues boss Tuchel insists he remains a "huge fan" of the young England star.

But he acknowledges the challenge Gallagher faces to gain a place in his starting eleven, and admits every player has his price.

The Chelsea head coach said: "In general, nobody is for sale, and everybody is for sale.

"It depends on what the player wants, how bad the player wants it, what we think, who is ready to pay a certain amount of money.

"Then maybe everybody is for sale.

"Conor fights in central midfield. To be very honest, it’s a tough fight for him because at the moment, as it seems, we only have two places in central midfield, which is a bit unfair given the number of players we have for central midfield.

"It's not ideal, I agree. But we have to do what’s best for the squad, not what’s best for every individual player.

"I'm a huge fan of Conor. He is first of all a fantastic guy."
