Gallagher to N17? Tottenham look to solve midfield woes with Chelsea star

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher for some time, with multiple reports stating the North Londoners are making the England international their prime target this summer transfer window.

The Lilywhites will be looking to build on the progress made by Ange Postecoglou at N17, and the officials in the cubicles of White Hart Lane will be looking to ascertain that the off-season is used smartly with a keen eye on improving the roster at the Australian’s disposal. Midfield is one of the positions in which the club is looking to increase depth and quality in the upcoming summer window, as they could lose out on a couple of midfielders heading into the transfer window. 

Giovani Lo Celso and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg have been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane as Spurs look to bring Conor Gallagher to the N17 this summer. He would not only increase the quality of the midfielder but also help provide depth in the position.
