Conor Gallagher has made a decision regarding his future at Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea amid interest from Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham Hotspur.
The Mirror, which has reported how much Chelsea wants in transfer fees for Gallagher, claims that to be the case.
What information has been released on Conor Gallagher, Chelsea, and Tottenham Hotspur? Let’s examine this.
Conor Gallagher wants to stay at Chelsea amid Tottenham Hotspur interest
Conor Gallagher is a player that Tottenham Hotspur is interested in acquiring from London rival Chelsea in the January transfer window, according to The Mirror.
According to the source, Chelsea wants to pay £60 million for Trevoh Chalobah, a midfield player, but the former Premier League and UEFA Champions League winners could only be able to get £50 million for him. Chelsea could lose Chalobah in January.
Despite being “true admirers” of the midfield player, Tottenham is unwilling to spend £50 million or £60 million on him.
Gallagher “is determined to stay at Chelsea” and “views Stamford Bridge as home,” according to The Mirror. He’s not interested in relocating to Tottenham. Mauricio Pochettino, the head coach, wants to hold onto the 23-year-old.
Tottenham Hotspur should move on from Conor Gallagher
Tottenham Hotspur should, in my opinion, move on from Conor Gallagher and concentrate on someone else.
I don’t think Tottenham should pursue the 23-year-old further if the club is unwilling to spend £50 million and the player isn’t willing to leave Chelsea during the January transfer window.
Ange Postecoglou, the head coach of Tottenham, really likes Gallagher, but I think it would be best for the team to go on and give up on him.
Gallagher has contributed four assists to Chelsea’s 19 Premier League games this year. Over the course of his 118 Premier League appearances, he has tallied 13 goals and provided 10 assists.
Revealed: Tottenham hand forced after new contract was confirmed on Tuesday
After rumors of interest in the midfield player from outside Tottenham surfaced, Tottenham moved swiftly to lock down Pape Matar Sarr to a new contract in north London, according to Tottenham News.
Sarr has re-signed with Spurs, extending his contract with the team through 2030.
On January 2, Tottenham made the announcement about the 21-year-old’s contract renewal on their official X platform.
With Sarr’s new arrangement, everything moved swiftly forward. On New Year’s Eve, reports that the Senegal international midfielder was close to signing a contract extension initially surfaced. Jack Pitt-Brooke, the Athletic’s Tottenham writer, shared the information on his personal X account on December 31.
After the announcement of the new long-term deal just two days later, Tottenham News has since revealed that rival teams had shown interest in the midfield player, prompting the north London team to move quickly to lock him down.
Spurs-connected recruitment insiders told Tottenham News that other teams were interested in Sarr because of his strong season-long play under Ange Postecoglou.
One of Spurs’ most vital players this season, the box-to-box midfielder has started 16 of the team’s 20 Premier League games while netting two goals and dishing out two assists.
His most recent goal came on New Year’s Eve at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium during Tottenham’s 3-1 victory over Bournemouth.
This week, Sarr received even more positive news when Postecoglou declared that he was well enough to play for Senegal at this month’s African Cup of Nations.
In the first half of Spurs’ match against the Cherries, Sarr was substituted out with what appeared to be a hamstring injury. However, the 58-year-old head coach of the club said the midfield player was “fine” when questioned about his status during his pre-match press conference before Friday’s FA Cup match against Burnley (Football London, 4 January).
