Crystal Palace are keen to extend Conor Gallagher’s loan from Chelsea – while they may also make a move for team-mate Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
Loftus-Cheek has recently enjoyed a resurgence with the Blues, playing in a variety of positions and hoping for more regular action.
Eagles chairman Steve Parish has announced that if he is unable to keep Gallagher, he will attempt to bring Loftus-Cheek back.
Asked if competing for places at Chelsea could help them keep Gallagher, Parish said The mirror: “Of course. But the player is the number one person.
“He knows exactly what his priorities are and he knows exactly what he’s doing.
“I’m sure at the end of the season. Conor will figure out what he thinks is best for him and that will be the catalyst for that.”
Parish added: “If there’s an opportunity to get him or even Ruben Loftus-Cheek, then of course.
“These are top players and it was great to have him here this year, not just because of his performance on the pitch.
“Also because of the way he is in the place, how he deals with the media and supporters and because he is a special boy.”
