Transfer: Gallagher decides to leave Chelsea amid interest from EPL rivals


Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher has ruled out leaving the club in the January transfer window amid reports of interest from Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Despite being promoted to vice-captain by manager Mauricio Pochettino, Gallagher's future at his boyhood club Chelsea looks very much in doubt.

Chelsea need to make ends meet after an unprecedented spending spree under new ownership, but they know that selling a fresh-faced player would be a pure gain on their balance sheet.

Reports last weekend claimed that the Blues were already close to signing the England international with Tottenham in last summer's transfer window, entering into talks over a potential £50m deal.

However, according to the Evening Standard, the 23-year-old is expected to turn down a move from Chelsea in January, preferring to remain at the west London club.

Recent developments have had a negative impact on Chelsea's plans to sign a new striker, with Pochettino's side considering using the proceeds from the sale of Gallagher to finance the signings of Brentford's Ivan Toney and Napoli's Victor Osimhen. ing.
