CONOR GALLAGHER will be allowed out on loan by Chelsea — with Crystal Palace and Newcastle scrapping for him.
The midfielder, 21, had hoped to impress boss Thomas Tuchel after a season at West Brom but the door is open for him to leave again.
But the Eagles have been priced out of a move for Denmark centre-half Joachim Andersen, 25, after he impressed for Fulham on loan last season.
Parent club Lyon want around £26million.
Andersen has heard of potential Spurs interest but may now find they will look elsewhere.
Defender Gary Cahill, 35, is being eyed by Steven Gerrard’s Rangers, who could give him £35,000 a week
Palace want Cahill to stay and sign a new deal after his contract expired — but the offer is less basic cash with extras for appearances.
Gallagher came on as a second half sub as the Blues beat the Posh at Cobham.
The visitors had opened the scoring but Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic gave Tuchel’s side the lead at the break
Erling Haaland Transfer News updates
Chelsea are desperate to land Erling Haaland this summer and a report explains why ‘Team Haaland’ are attracted by a move to Stamford Bridge.
The Borussia Dortmund striker is one of the hottest properties in football and scored 40 goals in all competitions last term.
Roman Abramovich has given the go-ahead for Chelsea to sign the Norwegian ‘at all costs’ and a £130million is said to have been made.
Dortmund are hoping Haaland will remain in the Bundesliga for another season but CFCNewsPagehas delivered an update on the deal which suggests Haaland and his representatives are keen on pushing for the move.
It’s claimed that ‘Team Haaland’ see Chelsea as a ‘significant step in improving Haaland’s game with the chances Tuchel’s team create game after game’.
The other factor said to be key in securing the deal is the alluring financial package the Blues are offering.
Haaland’s wages are set to be tripled from £100,000-a-week to £300,000-a-week, while his dad Alf-Inge Haaland and agent Mino Raiola would receive €40million, to be settled through personal cheques from Roman Abramovich.
The report also suggests Chelsea are prepared to offer improved terms if the initial bid is rejected.
A second offer will be for £130million plus £20million in add-ons, including bonuses for winning the Champions League and Premier League.
Meanwhile, former Blues star Emmanuel Petit claimed his old side should do everything possible to acquire the Dortmund star.
He said: “I’ll keep it simple.
“Olivier Giroud is on his way out of Chelsea, Tammy Abraham is probably leaving on loan, and Timo Werner is still struggling to score goals consistently and Kai Havertz is not a striker.
“Chelsea need a new striker and someone who scores lots of goals. Erling Haaland is the answer
