Tottenham are known admirers of Conor Gallagher, who has been the best player for Chelsea so far this season. The Englishman is only under contract at Stamford Bridge until 2025. Therefore, in the most ironic transfer move of 2024, Ange Postecoglou could take advantage of his contract situation, by signing Mauricio Pochettino's most prized asset.

Tottenham finally prepare bid for Chelsea contract rebel

According to a new update from Football Insider, Spurs are FINALLY preparing their opening offer for Conor Gallagher. It is thought that they are prepared to table an early summer bid for Gallagher and they will attempt to lowball Chelsea, at around £30m-£40m.

Without doubt, Chelsea would like more money for Gallagher. However, it will be interesting to see how Daniel Levy goes about the negotiations. Levy drives a hard-bargain and he will be aware of the psychological edge which Spurs hold over Chelsea. With only a year remaining on his deal come the summer, Chelsea's best bet is to sell Gallagher this summer.

Of course, Chelsea's financial situation could play a big part in the cut-price deal for Gallagher. In the latest update from Hotspur HQ, it was revealed that up to 15 players could be up for sale at Stamford Bridge this year, with Conor Gallagher one of the most tempting options.

Gallagher has started most matches for Chelsea this season and has a goal involvement rate of 15%, according to Transfermarkt. This is an impressive stat for a midfielder and it goes to show why Gallagher has a line of clubs queuing up to sign him.

Most notably, Gallagher was involved in the incredible comeback against his former club Crystal Palace last month. He scored two goals, including a stoppage time goal to win the match for Chelsea. Therefore, losing him could be detrimental for the Blues.
