Tottenham agreed deal for signing on Monday – Finalising personal terms, then medical

Tottenham Hotspur are confident they can get Conor Gallagher from Chelsea this summer if he doesn’t sign a new contract.

The 24-year-old has been linked with a move to Spurs for over six months now. Ange Postecoglou is a big fan of Gallagher, so much so that he has been described as the Australian’s ‘dream’ signing.

Tottenham think they can sign Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher for £45m

Conor Gallagher‘s Chelsea future has been up in the air since the end of last season, and Tottenham have been keeping a close eye on the situation.

Spurs look a completely different side under Ange Postecoglou. He has totally transformed the club, and almost every player he has signed has impressed.

Gallagher has been on Postecoglou’s radar since he became the Tottenham manager, and with the Chelsea midfielder entering the final year of his contract this summer, the rumour mill has been on fire.

Tottenham have also been linked with a move to sign Everton’s James Garner. He is said to be viewed as an alternative to Gallagher, but Journalist Ben Jacobs has now claimed that the Chelsea midfielder is the more likely target for Spurs.

He told GiveMeSport: “Tottenham appreciate the player (Garner), but there’s nothing advanced at this stage. Conor Gallagher, is perhaps the more likely target.

“I also think that if Gallagher doesn’t sign a new Chelsea deal, and nothing is advanced, the package that Tottenham may be able to offer will be a little bit less. I’m sure that Chelsea will point towards Mason Mount and say, he had a year left on his contract, and was a £60m total package to Manchester United, and Gallagher is in better form. So they may hold out for that £55m to £60m valuation.

“But, I think that Tottenham feel that by the time the summer comes, if Gallagher has not signed a new deal, he may be available for close to £45m to £50m. Whereas last summer, they thought that that was £5m or £10m too much.

“This coming summer, they may believe that’s pretty decent value given Gallagher’s form.”

Tottenham are right to target Gallagher

Conor Gallagher checks so many boxes for Tottenham, doesn’t he?

The Chelsea man is still just 24 years old but has already played over 120 games in the Premier League. He’s good on the ball, extremely hard-working off it, and he would fit into Postecoglou’s system perfectly.

We actually think the Australian would get more out of Gallagher than Mauricio Pochettino is doing right now at Stamford Bridge.

It will be interesting to see what will happen with Gallagher in the summer. Chelsea fans would hate to see him go to Tottenham, but it looks like there is a good chance of that happening at the end of this season.
