Tottenham have given up on signing Conor Gallagher

Tottenham have effectively given up on signing Conor Gallagher (Chelsea-23) in the January winter transfer window.

‘Tottenham have given up hope of signing Gallagher,’ the UK’s ‘Sports Mall’ reported on January 20 (KST), citing ‘Football Insider’. “Tottenham and Chelsea have held talks in recent days,” Football Insider reported. However, Chelsea have made it clear that they want to keep Gallagher for the rest of the season.

Enze Postecoglou has been targeting Gallagher since last summer’s transfer window. Chelsea were also keen to move forward.

The Blues snapped up midfielder Moises Kaysedo for £115 million, the highest transfer fee in English Premier League (EPL) history. However, 바카라사이트 the much-anticipated arrival failed to materialize.

Gallagher has been the mainstay, starting 20 of Chelsea’s 21 EPL games this season and recording four assists.

He has also worn the captain’s armband in the absence of ‘captain’ Rhys James and vice-captain Ben Chilwell. Caicedo, on the other hand, has made 18 appearances but has no points to his name.

However, the door is still open for Gallagher.

Tottenham will try again to sign Gallagher in the summer transfer window after this season.

Chelsea has Financial Fair Play (FFP) at stake. Chelsea have spent an astronomical £1 billion in the last three transfer windows since Todd Boeli took over.

Failure to comply with FFP rules could result in severe penalties, including a points deduction. The best thing they can do for their financial health is to sell youth players. Gallagher is ‘first choice’.

In this case, the transfer fee earned would be captured as a ‘net profit’. This is why Man City sold Cole Palmer to Chelsea for £42.5 million, despite his talent.

The Sun recently reported that “Gallagher is not in Mauricio Pochettino’s long-term plans but is unlikely to leave Chelsea in the January transfer window”.

The emphasis is on the “not in the long-term plans” part. Gallagher is out of contract at Chelsea next June. 토토사이트 순위 Chelsea will likely put him on the market this summer in order to sign a new player.

Tottenham brought in all-weather striker Timo Werner and center back Radu Dragucin as soon as the January transfer window opened. Gallagher’s signing never materialized.
