Sources: Newcastle well placed to agree Conor Gallagher deal after ‘huge’ news

February 28, 2023

Newcastle United’s interest in signing Chelsea star Conor Gallagher has not diminished ahead of the summer window, sources have told Football Insider.

The Magpies were interested in signing Gallagher, 23, during the January window but talks or a bid didn’t materialise before the deadline.

It is believed that a summer deal is now possible for Newcastle – with the Blues likely to ask for a fee of around £30million for Gallagher.

The Magpies could also look to a loan-to-buy deal for the midfield star – who is wanted by Crystal Palace and a host of other Premier League sides.

Newcastle have been stretched thin in midfield following Bruno Guimaraes’ red card in the League Cup semi-final.
