Rio Ferdinand believes Conor Gallagher is among the best young players in Premier League.
The Crystal Palace starlet, who moved from Chelsea on loan, has been in great form for the Eagles as he has scored 4 goals and provided 2 assists in his 10 PL appearances.
During the latest Vibe with Five podcast, Ferdinand claimed that Gallagher is one of the best young players in the Premier League.
“Shoutout Wilfried Zaha and Conor Gallagher… If you’re looking at young players in the league at the moment, his name (Gallagher) will be up there.”
“He’s been in the England youth set up for a long long time, a World Cup winner with the under-17s four years ago.
“It can’t be long, if he keeps playing like this, before Gareth Southgate acknowledges he should be in the England squad. He’s doing it week in week out, whether they win or lose, he is performing without a doubt.
The 21-year-old’s brilliant performances led him to be called up to the England squad.
