The 23-year-old midfielder has started every game under new manager Mauricio Pochettino and is happy at Chelsea.


He wants to fight for a place in the team and has so far ignored offers to leave Chelsea in the ongoing transfer window.




However, Chelsea are close to signing Manchester City’s Cole Palmer, who is seen as direct competition for Gallagher’s spot in the team.


Palmer’s imminent move to Chelsea has encouraged Tottenham to consider making a move for the Blues midfielder in the final two days of the window.



Spurs have been monitoring Gallagher’s situation all summer and are big admirers of the 23-year-old.


Tottenham are now weighing up whether to try and sign the midfielder from Chelsea in the coming hours.



It remains to be seen whether Spurs can convince the player to leave Chelsea even if they agree on a fee with their London rivals.
