Chelsea star Gallagher attracts attention from Tottenham Hotspurs

Chelsea Conor Gallagher

Allegedly, one of Chelsea’s major rivals considers Conor Gallagher their ideal acquisition. The Cobham graduate is excelling at Chelsea, becoming pivotal under Mauricio Pochettino.

Despite his current success, uncertainty looms over the future of the English international as his contract expires in just a year.

The 24-year-old strongly expresses his desire to stay at the club. With Pochettino also eager for his tenure to extend at Stamford Bridge. However, substantial discussions regarding a new contract have not yet taken place.

As per rumors, Tottenham, Chelsea’s rivals, may pursue Gallagher to bolster their midfield, seeking another number eight. According to journalist Dean Jones, Spurs view the Chelsea midfielder as their ideal addition in that position.

What did Dean Jones say about the Chelsea midfielder and Tottenham?

Dean Jones said: “Tottenham are absolutely convinced that he’s the kind of dream number eight that they’re after. So from a playing style, and personality on the pitch, Conor Gallagher really does fit the ethos of where they want to take this team.”

I’d say things that go against it at the moment are the fact that Conor Gallagher is Chelsea through and through and that does sometimes play into whether a player would be willing to join a certain team. I’m not ruling out that he would join Tottenham, but it’s something to consider.”

The ex-Crystal Palace loanee has featured consistently for Chelsea this season, participating in 24 out of 25 Premier League matches. Across all competitions, he has contributed three goals and six assists in 33 matches.
