Journalist Dean Jones stated in his SportsLens blog that if Tottenham’s pursuit of Conor Gallagher fails, they may choose to move for Blackburn Rovers prodigy Adam Wharton in transfer window.


After making his debut in Blackburn’s starting lineup the previous season, Wharton has established himself as a mainstay in the Championship club’s midfield. Several Premier League teams are now reportedly showing interest in the 19-year-old.


When 90min revealed in November that Tottenham had studied the teenager extensively this season, it became apparent that the Lilywhites were interested in the teenager.


The publication did, however, make it apparent that Ange Postecoglou’s team would have fierce competition for the center midfield player, with teams like Manchester United, Newcastle United, Everton, Brighton & Hove Albion, and Liverpool keeping an eye on him.


Spurs’ interest in the Rovers youngster was also verified by Football Insider a little over a week ago. However, the publication stated that the Ewood Park administration is unlikely to allow the player to go in the middle of the season, meaning the Premier League team may have to wait until next summer.

Adam Wharton might be the Spurs’ substitute for Gallagher.


In a recent article, Jones stated that although Tottenham is still looking into a trade for Gallagher, the England international’s negotiations have not advanced.

He claims that as a result, the Spurs may try to “strike an early deal” for Wharton before the transfer window closes at the end of this month.


According to the writer, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium would accept a price of about £10 million to sign the young midfield player.

Gallagher is perceived as someone who can instantly strengthen the starting eleven, whereas Wharton is more of a future player. Therefore, I’m not sure if Tottenham would have considered the young Blackburn player as a substitute for the Chelsea player.
