Chelsea star Conor Gallagher named in in amazing XI of wonderkids to watch in 2022 by Spanish media | The Sun

CONOR GALLAGHER’S stock is rising across Europe after his sensational performances for Crystal Palace last season.

The 22-year-old has netted eight times in the Premier League and was handed his senior England debut.


Sources told SunSport the on-loan Chelsea talent is a shock £50MILLION target of French giants Paris Saint-Germain.

And now the midfielder has been named as one of Marca’s wonderkids to watch for 2022.

The Spanish daily hailed him as a ‘jewel’ in Chelsea’s glittering squad and praised the ‘finesse and flexibility’ of his game.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel is a Gallagher fan, saluting his progress at the Eagles during what was his fourth loan spell away from Stamford Bridge.

And Marca compared him to international team-mate Jack Grealish – who became the most expensive Englishman ever when he moved from Aston Villa to Manchester City last year.

The newspaper had room for another Chelsea connection in their future XI.

Southampton teenager Tino Livramento is their right-back to watch for the coming year.

The 19-year-old left West London for the South Coast last summer and played 32 times for the Saints in all competitions.

Marca’s list includes another English name – Noni Madueke.

The winger, 19, reportedly turned down an offer from Man United as he left Spurs for Dutch side PSV in June 2018.

Last summer he penned a new contract to keep him in the Netherlands until 2025.
