Chelsea have been brutally slammed for their transfer stance on Conor Gallagher amid interest from Tottenham. The Blues are open to letting the Cobham academy graduate leave the club for the right price as they search for ways to balance out their books with selling Gallagher seen as an easy solution as any funds gained from his departure will count as pure profit on the books.
Significant investment has been completed by the Blues in midfield in recent windows with Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo signed for a combined £221million. Surprisingly, despite the lofty price tags of the duo, Gallagher has often matched their displays this season which has increased confusion as to why the west Londoners are open to letting him depart.
The Lilywhites were interested in the summer and those links have remained in the January transfer window, although focus from Ange Postecoglou was elsewhere first. Radu Dragusin and Timo Werner have both been signed to add depth in defence and attack with it possible that a new midfielder is also acquired.
