Troy Deeney, a former Premier League striker, has advised Liverpool not to recruit Mason Mount and Conor Gallagher from Chelsea.
The Reds have been connected with the duo and are reportedly anxious to reinforce Jurgen Klopp’s midfield at the end of the summer.
The playmaker’s current West London contract expires in the summer of 2019, and the 24-year-old has not yet agreed to a new one.
As football.london reported earlier this month, Liverpool has identified Mount as their top transfer target and thinks the summer offers a chance to buy him for a lower price.
The Times reports that Gallagher has been named as one of Liverpool’s potential replacements for the England international.
Conor Gallagher is wanted by Liverpool, but the Chelsea midfielder is now more interested in remaining in London than moving up north.
According to transfer expert Dean Jones, who discussed Gallagher’s future with Give Me Sport, that is the case.
Jones asserts that Gallagher is ‘very determined’ to continue living in London.
‘Family comforts’ are cited as a justification for Gallagher’s position, and it would supposedly take a ‘huge sell’ to entice him to Merseyside.
Gallagher is a native of Epsom in the Surrey region and has been a Chelsea player since he was just eight years old.
