This month, Tottenham Hotspur might use reinforcements in the midfield.
Although the North London club has an amazing roster, they now need depth in the midfield due to the departures of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Yves Bissouma for the African Cup of Nations.
Fortunately for Tottenham, the January transfer market is still open, and reports suggest that Spurs have found the ideal midfield addition for this month.
In fact, Dean Jones stated on the Ranks FC Podcast that there’s a chance Spurs recruit a new midfield player this month, and he claims to have heard from the team that Conor Gallagher would be the ideal number eight.
Gallagher the perfect fit
Jones discussed the 23-year-old based on what he has heard.
“I’ve been informed that they think Conor Gallagher would truly be the ideal number eight fit, so there’s definitely a chance of that happening,” Jones stated.
The notion of Gallagher playing under Ange Postecoglou for Tottenham is enticing.
Spurs believe Gallagher will be a great fit for them, and they are not entirely off base.
The midfielder is a terrific football player, and Postecoglou’s approach perfectly complements his strengths.
Gallagher is the definition of an all-action midfield player—he runs nonstop throughout every game, which is ideal for Postecoglou’s style of play.
It remains to be seen, of course, if this agreement turns out to be feasible.It won’t be simple for Spurs to push the Blues in this one, as there have been contradictory outcomes in recent weeks. Gallagher is a key player for Chelsea this season.
Jones’ remarks demonstrate how much Spurs value Gallagher as a player, and it wouldn’t be shocking if they keep pushing for this acquisition as the month comes to a close.

More discussion over Conor Gallagher’s departure from Chelsea to Tottenham Hotspur this month will continue for a few hours.
As Tottenham looks to build on the spectacular acquisitions of Radu Dragusin and Timo Werner, Gallagher is among their main targets.
Given the uncertainty surrounding Gallagher’s future at Chelsea, Spurs and Ange Postecoglou want to add him to the team.
Gallagher hasn’t yet expressed a desire to leave The Bridge, and Mauricio Pochettino has stated that he wants his captain to stay.
However, journalist Ben Jacobs stated today on the FIVE YouTube channel that Chelsea will sell if the proper offer is made.
Chelsea will listen to Tottenham offer for Conor Gallagher
Regarding the Gallagher scenario, Jacobs states that Chelsea is willing to consider offers and has a price for the player.
“It’s highly possible that Chelsea will opt to cash in on Conor Gallagher if the correct number is hit. He isn’t being promoted to teams or placed on a transfer list, though, because he isn’t actively for sale. But he will be free to leave if a team approaches and meets Chelsea’s asking price. Gallagher is still free to decline, but Chelsea’s strategy is to examine and listen to offers if the deal has less than two years left on it.
As a result, Chelsea might accept the offer from Spurs if they make it since there isn’t a new deal on the horizon. Gallagher is able to refuse, though. Chelsea needs Gallagher in the near term, but I believe Chelsea supporters will disagree on whether or not he fits in the long run. At the end of the previous window, the Spurs made a bid of about £35 million for Conor Gallagher. They believed that any amount higher than that was excessive, but as Gallagher’s form has improved, the figure will rise. We’ll have to wait and see if Spurs are willing to spend that kind of money, but if they are, Chelsea will pay close attention, according to Jacobs.
Levy should push the button
This is the best moment to fully support the manager at Tottenham during the Daniel Levy era.
Spurs are well-positioned to finish in the top four this season, if not higher, under Postecoglou.
Spurs have strengthened their roster with the additions of Dragusin and Werner, who join during the summer transfer window.
But it would feel like a huge statement to land Gallagher. You also get the impression that, with Ange in command, he may persuade the Englishman to move.
Therefore, Levy must act now while the opportunity is still present.
