Chelsea mulling over the sale of Conor Gallagher to Tottenham

Chelsea could potentially incur the displeasure of Mauricio Pochettino, as there are reports of talks with Tottenham over the sale of Conor Gallagher.

Blues captain Conor Gallagher has stood out as one of Chelsea’s top performers in a somewhat lackluster season, playing a pivotal role as a midfielder.

The 23-year-old has earned the trust of Pochettino and even served as the team captain for a substantial portion of the campaign, filling in for the regular skipper, Reece James.

As per information from Gianluca DiMarzio, Chelsea has established a valuation of £35 million ($45 million) for Gallagher’s potential transfer to North London. Tottenham had previously shown interest in acquiring the English international during the summer transfer window.

Although Chelsea was open to the idea, a conclusive agreement didn’t happen. However, the current situation may unfold differently, with Todd Boehly and his associates willing to allow Gallagher’s departure. They have reportedly welcomed Tottenham’s renewed interest in the academy graduate.

Tottenham faces potential squad issues as Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarrwill reportedly leave for the Africa Cup of Nations. Furthermore, they are considering the sale of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, who has attracted interest from Juventus and Napoli. This has prompted them to accelerate talks with Chelsea.

Whether Gallagher will join Tottenham is still uncertain, as Pochettino is likely keen on having the valuable asset. Gallagher has featured in 22 matches this season and was included in the starting XI against Luton Town on Saturday, highlighting the Argentine manager’s significant trust in the player.
