This January, Tottenham is in desperate need of midfield reinforcements, and Ange Postecoglou may have just discovered the ideal addition.


Long-term injuries have kept James Maddison and Rodrigo Bentancur out of action, but Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr will be competing at AFCON in January.


This would leave Giovani Lo Celso, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, and Oliver Skipp as Tottenham’s only available senior midfield players. This is an untenable situation, so the team will need to take unusual action in the January transfer window.



Given the recent events at Hotspur Way, there’s no reason they can’t have a player through the doors during the first week of the month.


Given the recent events at one of their fiercest Premier League rivals, there’s no reason they can’t have a player through the doors at Hotspur Way during the first week of the month.


As per an exclusive report published in the Daily Mail on December 11, Chelsea is contemplating a surprise sale of Conor Gallagher in January to generate funds for other squad members. According to club officials, it makes financial sense to let the midfield player go in order to adhere to Premier League spending regulations.


Even though Gallagher has proven to be a regular under Mauricio Pochettino this season, he still only has 18 months left on his contract at Stamford Bridge. There are currently no indications that talks over a new deal are moving forward.



The 22-year-old piqued Tottenham’s interest during the summer, and Mail Sport has now confirmed that the North London team would be prepared to move again.


Postecoglou would undoubtedly benefit greatly from this, as Gallagher has been among Chelsea’s best players this year—despite the possibility that their willingness to sell him suggests otherwise.




The midfielder was once again a standout player for his team in the exciting 4–4 draw with Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on November 12. He made three tackles, completed 95% of his passes, two of which were crucial, and contributed one assist.


Gallagher is the ideal midfielder for Postecoglou because of his defensive work rate and offensive prowess. At just 22 years old, he still has plenty of time to grow and learn, and under the Australian’s tutelage, he could become a top Premier League player.
