Gallagher’s displays have caught the attention of former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino and the French giants, who plan to move in January for the England international.

But the boss of PSG is not the only one to notice the performances of the England international since Gallagher was named in the eleven of Marca of the wonders to watch.

Spanish media hailed him as a “gem” in the scintillating Chelsea squad and praised the “finesse and flexibility” of his game.

Marca compared him to international teammate Jack Grealish, who became the most expensive Englishman of all time after his £ 100million move to Manchester City from Aston Villa last summer.

Southampton teenager Tino Livramento was also on the list as the 19-year-old grab the right-back spot.

Livramento was named Chelsea Academy’s best player in 2020-21, but chose to move from west London to the south coast in the summer in search of consistent playing time.

He’s been one of the biggest revelations of the season with a goal and an assist in 19 games for the Saints this season.

Noni Madueke is the latest English name to make the cut.

The 19-year-old left Spurs for Dutch side PSV in June 2018 and reportedly rejected an offer from Manchester United to do so.

The winger has signed a new four-year contract that will keep him in the Netherlands until 2025.
