Conor Gallagher not keen on Newcastle United move

Conor Gallagher may not prefer a move to Newcastle United right now, with Tottenham considered the front runner for the Chelsea mainstay.

According to Tyneside outlet Geordie Boot Boys, Conor Gallagher may not prefer a move to Newcastle United should he leave Chelsea in the summer. The England international may be subject to a move away from Stamford Bridge, with Tottenham considered the front-runner for the midfielder.

Conor Gallagher uninterested in Newastle move?

As Chelsea are unsure about his future, Conor Gallagher could become a big transfer story in the summer. With PSR obligations likely to play a huge role in forcing the Blues to make the sale of the midfielder, a few suitors are lining up a move for the Blue’s homegrown star.

Newcastle United are keen and has been since last summer. They did want to sign him last summer but decided against making late bids despite reports stating the contrary. Yet, they had planned on making an attempt in the upcoming window when the Chelsea mainstay was expected to become available.

However, Gallagher has no interest in joining Newcastle United in the summer, as per the report, which could be due to various reasons. He might evaluate the other offers, particularly from Tottenham, who could offer him a chance to stay in London.

Additionally, there might be the case of the project he will become a part of at Newcastle United, which has thoroughly struggled for relevance despite finishing in the top four the year before. Hence, the Chelsea mainstay might choose his options wisely, including waiting on a new contract from the Blues, which still seems like his priority.

Tottenham in pole position for Gallager

If Newcastle United were interested in Gallagher last summer, Tottenham as keen as well. Spurs might have made a concrete approach for the Chelsea mainstay late in that window, which could not be fulfilled. Ange Postecoglou wants someone of the midfielder’s character and profile and has urged the club to wrap up the signing as soon as possible.

There’s a higher chance for Tottenham to sign Gallagher ahead of the summer, as many factors favour them. Hence, with Newcastle not considered by Gallagher as a destination, Spurs might have the upper hand in the chase.
