Report: Hammers try for Chelsea man

West Ham have made an enquiry for Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher, according to a new report.

The midfielder was in excellent form last season, as he shined on loan at Crystal Palace.

He has since returned to Stamford Bridge, however, and there is now interest from a number of Premier League clubs, including the Irons.

90min reports that the Irons have asked about Gallagher’s availability, as have Newcastle and Palace.

Gallagher’s form at Palace was so impressive that he earned himself an England call-up but he was on the bench for Chelsea’s opening day win over Everton, only coming on as a substitute in stoppage time.

That has understandably led to enquiries but 90min also claims Chelsea have no plans to allow Gallagher to leave, either on loan or on a permanent deal in this window.

His situation mirrors that of Armando Broja, who was a target for the Hammers earlier in the transfer window, but who has yet to leave the club.

  1. Offer £80 million for Broja and Gallagher and see what happens, supposedly Gallagher has said he doesn’t want to leave Chelsea although it seems an odd decision with a World Cup coming up that he could be a part of if he was playing regularly…

    Our transfer business is a car crash, although I didn’t want him Coady looks like going to Everton, theyhave signed Onana and Tarkowski all players we were after, they are a relegation candidate, what is going on with our recruitment process ? The Onana replacement Sangakare chose PSV over us which is fair enough for CL football although he said in his report they showed they wanted him, the players we are after it doesn’t appear we are doing that, it’s just scattergun then we get a bid accepted and the players say they don’t want to come (every window) for god’s sake hire someone that can make these players feel wanted if that is one of the problem.

    • Look how quick Everton got the Coady deal done…..so why do we drag our feet? apparently Moyes now looking at defender from PSG but Sevilla interested and can offer champs league….quick call needs to be made to players agent is he interested as we cannot offer champs league yes or no? then move on…car crash indeed…odoi available on loan and Moyes wanting a wide player so throw kitchen sink at that one…Belotti on a free yes please thats the front sorted no more worrying about Ants injury….Traore £10million from Wolves another speed merchant an Ant clone if you will not the best certainly but prem experience and a beast of a player….deals to be had and many need doing but we plod on and wont panic until its to late

  2. We tried and failed apparently.
    This guy would be great for us, is a midfield menace and just keeps fighting for the ball and has good distributions. If we were In for Leeds bloke that went to city then why can’t we offer the big money on an English star on the rise. We need to crack on with bring numbers in and now

  3. West Ham Fan No 32 why don’t make your comments on the C&H Forum rather then just on here. Everton have got money to burn they are trying to buy success, see how much they have spent over the last couple of years. How would you feel if they bought someone in to do a similar job to you on double the money. West Ham have a wage structure and want players who want to be here not players who look for the biggest wages.

  4. Hey Frenchie,

    Thanks for reply, if on the forum would probably end up spending all day on it, not the most productive for me 😉

    As to the wage structure, we are bidding for premium players that are in demand and that the manager wants, no point in bidding for them if we aren’t prepared to pay the salaries that are market rate for in demand players, it seems like the manager would like players from Harrods but salary wise the board would like them on Supermarket salaries, every window is the same old story.

    Good to have a vent on here 😀
