Report: Chelsea want £60m for Tottenham target Conor Gallagher

Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher is unlikely to sign for Tottenham this month, despite reports linking him with a move across London.

The rising star has drawn interest from Spurs but the Blues are demanding £60million, which is too steep for the north London side due to Financial Fair Play rules.

The price tag could mean such a move will only be feasible at the end of the current campaign.

Gallagher, a key figure in Chelsea’s midfield, has been a standout performer this season. Despite the admiration from Spurs, Chelsea are reluctant to part ways with the England international, especially considering his pivotal role in the team.

In contrast, another Chelsea player, Ian Maatsen, is on the radar of Borussia Dortmund. The potential sale of the Dutchman could provide additional funds for Chelsea’s transfer activities.

While Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino aims to strengthen the squad for the second half of the season, the club follow a sell-to-buy strategy, and any acquisitions in the January window depend on player departures.
