Alasdair Gold has claimed that Chelsea might not be willing to sell Conor Gallagher to Tottenham Hotspur during the January transfer window

Several outlets (including The Times and The Guardian) reported during the last couple of days of the transfer window that Tottenham remained keen on offloading Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and replacing him with Gallagher.

However, that failed to materialise, with the Dane remaining at Spurs while the England international continues to ply his trade at Stamford Bridge.

Do Tottenham need Conor Gallagher?

It remains to be seen if Tottenham reignite their interest in the Chelsea player when the transfer window reopens in January, and it has been suggested by some publications over recent days that the Blues might be open to cash in on the midfielder.

This includes The Athletic, who claimed earlier this week that Gallagher is ‘more valued for his potential sale price than his on-pitch contributions’ by the West London club’s hierarchy.

However, the 23-year-old has started every single game for Mauricio Pochettino so far this season, which is why Gold is sceptical about whether he will be in the shop window.

The journalist said on his YouTube channel: “Gallagher is the more difficult one. He now plays regularly for Chelsea. Then why are they going to let him go in January? Much depends if he is out on the pitch or not.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Three months is a long time in football and a lot can happen between now and January. So, it is very much possible that Chelsea would be open to offers for Gallagher when the transfer window reopens, particularly since they would need to strengthen in other areas of the pitch and would want to comply with FFP.
