Renowned journalist Ben Jacobs has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are the last ones standing in the race to sign Chelsea star Conor Gallagher.

Tottenham Hotspur vie for Gallagher amidst Chelsea renewal talks

Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher has been the premier target at Tottenham Hotspur FC going into the summer transfer window, with multiple reports stating the North Londoners are making a move for the England international.

There is an air of change at White Hart Lane as Spurs look to build on the progress made by Ange Postecoglou at Spurs, and the officials in the cubicles of Hotspur Way 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 where the club will be looking to increase depth and quality, as they could lose out on a couple of midfielders.

Tottenham are set to lose Giovani Lo Celso and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the off-season, with both midfielders linked with a move away from the N17, and this aids Spurs pursuit of the former Crystal Palace midfielder as he brings that additional ceiling-raising quality and increased depth.

Beyond the blues?

Amid rumors of a Chelsea exit, the player is hopeful to renew his contract at Stamford Bridge despite long-running uncertainty surrounding his future, per Football Insider. The boyhood Chelsea fan has never hidden his desire to continue with the Blues and wants to explore the possibility of a contract renewal.

Alongside Tottenham, the likes of Aston Villa and Atletico Madrid are also interested in acquiring the 24-year-old this summer; however, it is to be seen if he pursues his future with the West Londoners beyond the summer window.
