“I’m sure he is going to help us win the league “ Ange Postecoglou made it certain that £34m premier league is signing for Tottenham after a secret talk

It would seem that Tottenham Hotspurmanager Ange Postecoglou has conceded defeat in the brazen push to sign Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher this month, with Football Insider revealing that a move has been ‘shelved’ until the summer.

Spurs have been in fine fettle this season and perch just three points behind third-placed Aston Villa after 21 fixtures in the Premier League, having languished to a lowly eighth-placed finish last year.

Postecoglou’s side have been in an even more commanding position if not for a lack of depth that created a stark decline in form in November, though this issue has been fixed through the winter acquisitions of Radu Dragusin and Timo Werner.

The Lilywhites still need to strengthen the midfield, however, and while Gallagher was considered the No. 1 target it seems that Chelsea are standing firm on their stance that he shall remain at Stamford Bridge until the end of the campaign.

The search for a new star in the centre was not limited to just one player and now attention looks to have shifted abroad, with a Serie A star catching Postecoglou’s eye.

According to Italian outlet Tutto Atalanta, Tottenham are poised to rival Newcastle United for the signing of Atalanta phenom Ederson, who has been immense for his side over the past few years.

It’s understood that La Dea value the Brazilian among their most important and influential players and are reluctant to grant his departure at the season’s midpoint, currently one point behind Fiorentina in the top four.

That said, Italian reports earlier in the term suggest that Atalanta would be tempted to consider bids totalling €40m (£34m), which would make him a far more affordable option for Tottenham than Gallagher, who has a £50m price tag.
