Brighton & Hove Albion is reportedly in advanced talks with Chelsea over a potential move for Conor Gallagher. This comes as Brighton looks to bolster its midfield following the sale of Alexis Mac Allister to Liverpool and the possible departure of Moises Caicedo.

Gallagher, a 23-year-old England international, has emerged as a promising talent in the Premier League. Despite Chelsea’s underwhelming 2022/23 season, Gallagher managed to make 45 appearances for the Blues, showcasing his potential and versatility. His impressive loan spell at Crystal Palace, where he won the club’s player of the year award, further highlighted his capabilities.

Brighton views Gallagher as an ideal replacement for Mac Allister. The club believes that Gallagher’s experience and skill set would be a valuable addition to their maiden Europa League campaign. Moreover, Gallagher’s potential arrival could also pave the way for Caicedo’s move to Chelsea, creating a win-win situation for both clubs.

However, Brighton is not the only Premier League side interested in Gallagher. Newcastle United and West Ham United have also shown interest, while Tottenham has been keen in the past. Despite the competition, Brighton remains hopeful of finalizing a deal.

In addition to Gallagher, Brighton is also keen on making Levi Colwill’s loan move from Chelsea permanent. The club had an initial £30 million bid rejected by Chelsea, but they intend to return with an improved offer.

The potential signing of Gallagher and Colwill could significantly strengthen Brighton’s squad for their upcoming Europa League campaign. However, the final decision rests with Chelsea, who will be looking to balance their books after heavy spending in the last two transfer windows.
