Chelsea player that Thomas Tuchel loves could be set for surprise January switch to European giants

Posted by

Things could be about to change quite significantly for Chelsea if recent transfer rumours are accurate.

All eyes will be on Thomas Tuchel in January after his Blues side began a descent from the summit of the Premier League.

Ahead of their important top of the table clash against Liverpool, a game which won’t feature their record signing, Romelu Lukaku, according to a tweet from The Athletic’s David Ornstein, Chelsea already find themselves 11 points behind leaders, Manchester City.

Another loss against the Reds, and the Blues can all but kiss their Premier League title hopes goodbye.

Fans of the club, no doubt already reeling from the loss of form and Lukaku’s recent outburst against the club during an interview with Sky Italy, some of which is detailed by CaughtOffside, won’t be too enamoured with the news that Paris Saint-Germain are circling one of their highly-rated stars.

Conor Gallagher

The Ligue Un giants have taken a shine to Conor Gallagher, currently on loan at Crystal Palace, and The Sun suggest that sources believe Mauricio Pochettinho, like Thomas Tuchel, admires the industry of the attacking midfielder.

It’s thought that PSG may even look to do a deal to take Gallagher to the French capital as early as this month.

Though he isn’t part of the Blues squad this season, he has shone in Patrick Vieira’s Palace side, and would surely give Chelsea’s current midfielders a run for their money when his loan at the South London outfit is up. Assuming PSG haven’t got their claws in by then.

From being European champions last season to coasting through the current Premier League campaign until recently, losing Gallagher would represent a real low point for Tuchel and Chelsea.
