Rooney claims Gallagher could become Chelsea's version of West Ham ace Rice

Derby County director Wayne Rooney accepts Conor Gallagher can turn out to be very much like West Ham United's Declan Rice for Chelsea.

Rooney was talking on Sky Sports ahead of Arsenal's outing to Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

Gallagher is loan at Palace from Chelsea for the season, and has played 26 league games this term.

"He is a player who brings a great deal of energy, yet he additionally has a ton of value to go close by that," Rooney said.

"I think he merits his England call-up and has the right to play in those games, and I figure he can have a major influence for England going ahead.

"He can be a player, as Declan Rice, that can be that machine of that England team. I would take more time to the World Cup, he is a player who is valued very more by his teammates, and that gives evidence that you are a decent player"
