But in a potential blow for the Toffees, talkSPORT’s football correspondent Alex Crook says they may have a hard time in persuading Gallagher to join. It remains to be seen whether Newcastle, Palace or the Hammers will stump up the kind of money Everton are offering. The Merseyside outfit currently sit 19th in the Premier League table and are in real danger of being relegated for the first time since 1951. Gallagher, who starred on loan with the Eagles last season, has featured in 25 games in all competitions for the Blues this term. He has missed just two out of Chelsea’s 20 top-flight matches, though he has been restricted to just eight starts.

Versatile full-back Malo Gusto was signed from Lyon on Sunday in a deal worth £30.7m. He is the seventh player to link up with Chelsea in January after Mykhailo Mudryk (£88m), Benoit Badiashile [£33.7m), Andrey Santos (£11m), David Datro Fofana (£10m), Joao Felix (£9.7m loan fee), and Noni Madueke (£35m).
