Crystal Palace Set to Replace Conor Gallagher with Daichi Kamada

Daichi Kamada

Crystal Palace are on the verge of finally replacing Conor Gallagher, with rumors suggesting the imminent arrival of Daichi Kamada.


Conor Gallagher had a highly successful loan spell at Selhurst Park during the 2021/22 season, making 39 appearances, scoring eight goals, and assisting five. However, he returned to Chelsea, where he has become a key player. Despite Chelsea’s current disarray and their inclination to offload Gallagher to fund other transfers, Crystal Palace have lacked a player of his profile for two years.

Daichi Kamada: The Replacement

Crystal Palace are now set to fill the void left by Gallagher with Daichi Kamada from Lazio. Kamada, whose contract with Lazio expires this month, is expected to sign a two-year deal with Palace. Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reports that the deal is very close to completion.

Kamada’s Background and Fit

Kamada, a Japanese international, previously worked with new Palace manager Oliver Glasner at Eintracht Frankfurt, making him a familiar and trusted player. Kamada is versatile, capable of playing in midfield or further forward in attacking roles. His skill set is notably similar to Gallagher’s, with FBRef listing Gallagher as the player most similar to Kamada.

Additional Transfers

Kamada is set to be one of the first two signings under Glasner’s tenure, alongside Moroccan player Chadi Riad, who has already completed his medical and awaits his announcement.


Crystal Palace fans can look forward to Kamada’s arrival, as the club aims to regain the dynamic presence in midfield that Gallagher provided. Kamada’s experience and versatility make him a promising addition to the squad as Palace prepares for the new season.
