Although Thomas Tuchel was keen to give Gallagher a chance in the Chelsea first-team this season, he could be allowed to leave before the summer window closes on Thursday night.

Newcastle United had been one of the sides tracking Gallagher this summer, with both them and West Ham looking at potential loan deals for him.

Palace have also had a long-standing interest in the 22-year-old and with just over £30million spent on signings this summer, could look to make Gallagher their marquee purchase of the summer.

The Magpies have also been linked with moves for Gallagher’s current Chelsea teammates Christian Pulisic and Armando Broja this summer.
