‘some concrete moves’ – Tottenham may revisit move for £45m midfielder in January

By Mehdi Gokal -

According to Caughtoffside, Tottenham ‘may engage in some concrete moves’ for Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher if Pierre-Emile Hojberg leaves in January.

The report claims that Gallagher holds a valuable place in Pochettino’s squad.

And while there’s no immediate rush to extend his contract, Chelsea have a ‘willingness to open discussions’ over the possibility.

They resisted pressure from interested clubs including Tottenham in the summer transfer window.

Tottenham were strongly linked with a move for the Chelsea man in the summer and reportedly even ‘held extensive talks’ with the club over a potential deal for him but an agreement could not be reached for the £45m man.

Spurs even made a verbal £40m plus add-ons bid for the Chelsea man on the deadline day but it fell £5m short of their £45m valuation at that time.

It was suggested then that Spurs had to offload at least two players before they could make a formal move for Gallagher but their priority at that time was to get Brennan Johnson done.

Spurs could return for him in January and with Hojbjerg keen on leaving in January, a move could be possible if they can offer Chelsea a price that is close to their valuation.

Tottenham could revisit a move for Gallagher in January, especially if Hojbjerg, who is keen on leaving, departs the club.

The midfield is an area that Spurs may need to strengthen, given the lack of depth in that position.

Currently, Yves Bissouma, James Maddison, and Pape Matar Sarr are the preferred midfield trio for Tottenham.

However, with Rodrigo Bentancur injured and Hojbjerg not in Ange Postecoglou’s plans, there is a need for additional reinforcements.

Whether Spurs pursue Gallagher or explore other midfield options in the January transfer window remains to be seen depending on Chelsea’s willingness to sell and Tottenham’s transfer budget.
