Tottenham ‘pressing ahead’ with plan to upset Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino | Football | Sport

The playmaker is viewed as a good fit for his manager’s 4-3-3 system, which could be why Postecoglou is so keen to acquire his services. However, Chelsea have never shied away from making it clear that bids for Gallagher would be entertained, and a significant bid from Tottenham could give them plenty to think about.

If Pochettino was to see one of his most important players offloaded to his former club then he could demand a thorough explanation and a replacement to be purchased as a matter of urgency. Chelsea’s current midfield trio of Enzo Fernandez, Gallagher and Moises Caicedo has not set the Premier League alight, though selling the best-performing of the three may be a step backwards rather than forwards, especially as they would be strengthening a direct rival.

Tottenham, in contrast, would be completing a hat-trick of impressive signings by welcoming Gallagher to their ranks, with Radu Dragusin set to sign and Timo Werner joining on loan for the remainder of the campaign.
