Mauricio Pochettino really likes 23-year-old Chelsea player, Tottenham Hotspur want him

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with Conor Gallagher, but Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino may not be willing to let the midfielder leave.

According to TEAMtalk, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Conor Gallagher from London and Premier League rivals Chelsea.

Spurs wanted to sign Gallagher in the summer transfer window and remain keen on the midfielder.

Newcastle United, West Ham United and Brighton and Hove Albion are also reportedly looking to make a move for Gallagher in 2024.

However, Chelsea do not have any plans to offload the 23-year-old England international midfielder anytime soon.

According to TEAMtalk, Chelsea are about to open talks with Gallagher over a new deal.

Chelsea head coach Mauricio Pochettino has made Gallagher an important part of his team and uses him regularly.

Pochettino has been hugely impressed by the youngster and wants him to stay, according to the report.

TEAMtalk has added that Gallagher is loving life at Chelsea and wants to stay at the former Premier League and UEFA Champions League winners.

My View: Conor Gallagher to Tottenham Hotspur unlikely

I do not think that Tottenham Hotspur will be able to sign Conor Gallagher from Chelsea.

Gallagher has become a key player for Chelsea and is flourishing under head coach Mauricio Pochettino.

If Pochettino wants to keep the 23-year-old, then I do not think that the Chelsea hierarchy will sell him.

Moreover, as TEAMtalk has noted, Gallagher himself is happy and wants to stay at Chelsea.

Chelsea and Tottenham are London rivals, so the midfielder may not be keen on crossing that divide.

Gallagher has given two assists in nine Premier League matches for Chelsea this season.

The English midfielder has made 108 appearances in the Premier League so far in his career.

The 23-year-old has scored 13 goals and given eight assists in those games.
