Rivals ready to sanction £50k-a-week star’s departure to Tottenham this summer

By Saikat -

Chelsea could sell their homegrown star Conor Gallagher to rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

The North London club have started to plan for the upcoming summer transfer window and Conor Gallagher is one of the names that has been on their wishlist for a long while now.

Tottenham could finally acquire the services of the £50k-a-week star in the summer with Chelsea ready to sanction his departure to the London rivals according to a report by Football Insider.

Gallagher has been a standout performer for Mauricio Pochettino’s team this season. The 24-year-old midfielder has featured in 42 matches and has even contributed towards 13 goals. Despite his performances and his importance to their team, a departure in the summer is on the cards.

His contract with the Blues runs out in the summer of 2025 and talks regarding a renewal have completely stalled. With Gallagher entering the final year of his deal in the summer, Chelsea will look to sanction his departure rather than risk losing out on him for free next year.

Chelsea need to sell Conor Gallagher

The Blues are struggling in terms of finances, they have recorded losses of £211.5 million in the last two seasons and need to sanction a few departures before 30th June to balance their books. Gallagher’s sale would represent pure profit as he is a homegrown player.

With Chelsea ready to sell, Tottenham can finally get their hands on the 24-year-old. Spurs have been keeping a close eye on the England international for a while. They consider him to be an ideal fit for Ange Postecoglou’s style of play. With Pierre-Emile Højbjerg expected to leave the North London club, Gallagher could be a great signing for them.
