Tottenham Hotspur targeting Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher?

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly showing an interest in Chelsea midfield Conor Gallagher, who is set to leave Stamford Bridge this summer.

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in signing Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher.

Chelsea are expected to offload several members of their squad this summer and Gallagher is among those that could be heading out of the exit door.

Gallagher made 45 appearances for Chelsea across all competitions last term, but he only started 23 of those matches.

The England international was linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge in January, and there is now an expectation that he will leave the club.

According to Football London, Chelsea’s London rivals Tottenham are interested in signing the 23-year-old this summer.

Tottenham are expected to be busy in the transfer window as new manager Ange Postecoglou looks to build a squad that suits his attacking philosophy.

Postecoglou has reportedly held a meeting over transfers with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, and Gallagher’s name is believed to be among their list of targets.

With speculation surrounding Pierre-Emile Hojberg‘s future, the addition of Gallagher would certainly strengthen Postecoglou’s midfield options.

Gallagher, who has been with the Blues since the age of eight, spent time on loan with Charlton Athletic, Swansea City, West Bromwich Albion and Crystal Palace, before making his Chelsea debut in August 2022.

West Ham United and Newcastle United have also been linked with the Chelsea academy product, but the Magpies are said to be looking at other options.

Newcastle are said to be leading the race for Spurs target James Maddison, who is expected to be sold following Leicester City’s relegation.

Brentford goalkeeper David Raya is another player that features on Tottenham’s radar, with Hugo Lloris set to leave the club this summer.

A recent report claimed that Spurs were close to agreeing personal terms with the Spain international, but Brentford’s £40m asking price could prove to be a stumbling block.
