£23m player causing “Great Damage”to Ange postecoglou after failing to accept Personal term agreement!!

Chelsea have reportedly slapped a £60 million price tag on Conor Gallagher this month, which could ultimately price Tottenham Hotspur out of a move.

Tottenham have been heavily linked with a January swoop for Conor Gallagher, with his future at Chelsea looking uncertain.

Gianluca Di Marzio claimed just last week that Spurs have opened talks with the Bluesover a move for Gallagher.

Yet, recent reports have suggested that no such talks have taken place just yet.

Gallagher has starred for Chelsea under Mauricio Pochettino this season and has even captained them in the absence of Reece James.

The 23-year-old’s links to Spurs certainly raised a few eyebrows last week, with Jamie Carragher labelling Chelsea a ‘mess’.

But according to Football Transfers, Tottenham simply won’t be able to afford Gallagher this month.

Football Transfers claims that despite recent reports, Tottenham are unlikely to snap up Gallagher this month.

This is down to Chelsea demanding a £60 million fee to even consider selling the Englishman.

The outlet notes that due to Financial Fair Play (FFP) constraints, Spurs are likely to stall their interest in Gallagher until the summer.

Gallagher has been lauded for his ‘brilliant’ displays in a Chelsea shirt this term. The Englishman has emerged as a standout performer under Pochettino.

Of course, Spurs could be in the market for a midfielder this month, with Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr heading to AFCON 2024.

But a move for Gallagher looks unlikely at this stage unless Chelsea significantly lower their demands.

It would be a shame for Tottenham to miss out on Gallagher given the fact they need reinforcements in midfield. The Chelsea star also seems like a perfect fit for Ange Postecoglou’s high-energy brand of football.

Nevertheless, there are other options Spurs could explore should they miss out on Gallagher, with Kalvin Phillips also said to be a target.
