Part of Crystal Palace’s transfer strategy this summer will include bringing in a couple of players on loan, The Athletic‘s Matt Woosnam has revealed.
Palace recently secured the services of Marc Guehi from Chelsea and it looks like they could turn to the west London club once again as they aim to bolster their squad further.
Speaking to FFC about Palace’s summer, Woosnam said:
“In terms of who they actually get, I would expect there to be at least one loan, maybe two.
“They always seem to sort of take that option up of bringing someone in on loan. It’s a bit more flexible than buying them.”
From Gallagher’s perspective, joining a side like Palace makes a lot of sense.
Last season, the England U21 international played a lot of football during his loan spell with West Brom. In total, he made 32 appearances, scoring two goals in the process.
After having a good taste of Premier League football, Gallagher will surely want to get out again and play rather than settle for Chelsea’s bench, which would be the likely scenario given Thomas Tuchel already has the likes of N’Golo Kante and Jorginho.
