Exciting Chelsea attacker Palmer vows to play alongside Liverpool ace Gomez

Chelsea prospect wants to play alongside Liverpool's Joe Gomez again.

With the likes of Dominic Solanke and Lewis Baker loaned out to Vitesse Arnhem, Kasey Palmer has emerged as the star of Chelsea's under-21 campaign.

The 19-year-old winger scored 10 goals for the under-21s and under-19s, helping Chelsea to a second successive UEFA Youth League crown.

Palmer has been in the first team squad in recent weeks, and will hope to continue his progression under next boss Antonio Conte.

Chelsea fans certainly will hope his future is with them, but last night he made a vow to one day play alongside pal Joe Gomez, who he has known for over a decade, and is part of the Liverpool squad.

The picture was taken after Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Liverpool on Wednesday night, with Palmer an unused substitute for the clash.

Palmer and Gomez both began their careers at Charlton Athletic, with Gomez leaving for Liverpool last summer.

He quickly established himself in the first team, only for what was lining up to be a fantastic season to be ended prematurely in November as he suffered a serious knee injury.

Liverpool are unlikely to let him go any time soon, while Palmer has a contract at Chelsea until 2019, so their best bet - unless Chelsea repeat their Daniel Sturridge mistake - is for the duo to line up together for England's under-21 side or even the senior team in the future.
