Report: England midfielder set to reject Spurs and fight for his place instead

Despite ongoing interest from Tottenham Hotspur, it is thought Conor Gallagher will reject a move across London and opt to stay and fight for his place in the Chelsea line-up instead.

Since Ange Postecoglou took over as Spurs manager this summer, there has been a big period of transition at the club, with players arriving and going.

Because it seems the Australian’s new 4-3-3 system requires a different kind of midfielder, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s spot in the Tottenham team may be in threat (Daily Mail).

In light of this, Spurs have been linked to a number of new central midfielders. Conor Gallagher, a standout for Chelsea, is reportedly one player who the North London club is interested in (Evening Standard).

Players very rarely switch from Chelsea to Tottenham or vice way, but this summer, Spurs continued to pursue the English midfielder. But earlier this month, it was reported (via Football Insider) that Chelsea were no longer prepared to let Gallagher leave.

Conor Gallagher wants to stay at Chelsea

Gallagher is eager to stay at Chelsea and contend for a starting spot, according to the most current information from insiders at Football Insider, and it is predicted that the 23-year-old will actively reject a trade to Spurs.

Despite the fact that Gallagher started the first three Premier League games, it is believed that as Mauricio Pochettino continues to reorganize his team, Gallagher “could be dumped out” of the starting lineup in favor of recent addition Romeo Lavia.

According to the most recent information, Chelsea would allegedly contemplate “letting him go for the right price,” but when it comes to Gallagher personally, there is reluctance to part ways.

I cannot see this deal working out for us at all. Chelsea want a big offer for Gallagher, which is not ideal, and the player himself doesn’t even want to leave. There are plenty of other options out there and we should be focusing our attention on attainable targets.
