According to Football Insider, Everton have registered their interest in the Chelsea midfielder to sign him this summer.
As per the report, Frank Lampard is a huge admirer of the youngster and has made him a top priority transfer for Everton as he is looking for an energetic and dynamic midfielder to add to his team before the beginning of next season.
The Toffees have even contacted Chelsea to make them aware of their interest.
Considering the relegation scrap that Everton found themselves in last season in the Premier League you would have thought that there would have been more signings made at this point, alas only one new addition has been confirmed so far with James Tarkowski making the move to Merseyside.
There is no doubt that Lampard needs Gallagher in his team, not only can the young Chelsea talent make a huge impact from the centre of the pitch but with Fabian Delph and Donny van de Beek departing there is certainly room to bolster the midfield options ahead of next season.
Gallagher has been capturing the attention of the football world following his impressive season-long loan spell at Crystal Palace, with the 22-year-old quickly proving that he has the potential to be a star.
Over 34 Premier League appearances, Gallagher scored eight goals, delivered three assists and created five big chances. He also made 1.1 key passes and two tackles per game, as well as successfully completing the majority of his dribble attempts (57%).
Gallagher’s quality and impression on Palace also led the player to win Young Player of the Year at the London Football Awards and he earned his senior England debut in the World Cup qualifiers following his contributions at Selhurst Park.
“He’s a super talent. He plays with an honesty and freedom that every 21-year-old should and doesn’t. He’s obviously a very talented boy. He’s a joy to watch.”
With that being said, it is no wonder Lampard wants to reunite with his former Chelsea player this summer via Goodison Park as Gallagher can offer exactly what Everton need in order to get off to a good start when they return to action next month. Kevin Thelwell simply has to bring him to Merseyside if the chance arises.
