With uncertainties surrounding the future of Gallagher’s fellow England teammate Jude Bellingham, Dortmund sees the 23-year-old as a potential valuable addition to their squad.
Gallagher, who began his career with Chelsea, has gained valuable experience through loan spells at EFL Championship clubs Charlton Athletic, Swansea City, and Premier League clubs West Bromwich Albion and Crystal Palace between 2019 and 2022. His standout performances at Crystal Palace earned him the title of the club’s Player of the Year for the 2021-22 season, and he subsequently made his first-team debut at Chelsea during the current 2022-23 season.
The English international has been important player for Chelsea this season, featuring in 38 games and leaving his mark with a memorable 90th-minute winner against his former club, Crystal Palace, in a thrilling 2-1 away victory on 1st October. His impressive displays have not gone unnoticed, and Dortmund has identified him as a player of interest, as per reports from Sky Sports.
Gallagher’s potential has also been recognized on the international stage, as he was included in England’s squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. However, Chelsea’s financial fair play concerns may necessitate the sacrifice of Gallagher in the transfer market.
