Tottenham set to miss out on Conor Gallagher

Tottenham could miss out on Conor Gallagher. The midfielder is set to re-evaluate his future, with a stay at Chelsea likely this summer.

According to Football Insider, Conor Gallagher will not join Tottenham or any other club as he is set to stay put at Chelsea. Spurs are keen on landing the midfielder, but his stance could change their direction of targets, as the England international will evaluate his future and stay put at Stamford Bridge for the coming season.

Tottenham will not sign Conor Gallagher

The Conor Gallagher saga could be diffused right at the start, as the midfielder is unlikely to join Tottenham or any other team this summer. The 24-year-old is firm on his stance that he will not be forced out of the club and will take time to evaluate his next steps.

A contract with Chelsea is not on the cards as things stand, although the Blues are not keen on allowing players to run down their deals with Gallagher into the final year of his deal. Hence, there is a possibility of the 24-year-old staying at the club beyond next season, as the West London club might ponder opening talks about a new deal.

Tottenham have been considered front-runners since the closure of the 2023 summer transfer window, and it has led to heavy speculation surrounding the England international. Ange Postecoglou wants to strengthen his central midfield options and could have benefited from a versatile midfielder like Gallagher.

Tottenham could lose Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg this summer and would need a player with good enough experience to replace the Dane. The signing of Archie Gray is seen as a big step forward, but he is not the answer to bringing solidity and experience into this Tottenham midfield, something Gallagher would bring.

Gallagher’s future at Chelsea

While Tottenham and other clubs are now unlikely to land Gallagher, they will still keep close tabs on the midfielder, who could be available on a free transfer next summer. With Chelsea’s policy, they will want to add some years into Gallagher’s deal, meaning a new contract could be on the cards.

Moreover, Chelsea have passed the chance to sell some of their key stars amid PSR concerns, as they have found different ways to deal with that particular problem. However, they have also signed Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, which may be seen as a direct indication that they are willing to move on from Gallagher this summer.
