Newcastle United are exploring a loan deal for Tottenham Hotspur target Conor Gallagher
According to the Telegraph, Newcastle United are exploring a loan deal for talented Tottenham Hotspur target Conor Gallagher from Chelsea.
The talented midfielder, currently plying his trade at Chelsea, has been on the radar of many top-flight clubs, including Tottenham. The Magpies are the latest club to take notice of his situation.
It appears that Eddie Howe’s men are on the hunt for further reinforcements in the heart of the park and have earmarked Conor Gallagher as a potential target. The Magpies have already made a significant investment in Sandro Tonali.
Just last month, reports from Football. London hinted that the Lilywhites were keen to utilise Gallagher’s desire to remain in London as leverage in securing his signature. However, not much has come up about that ever since.
However, the recent acquisition of James Maddison by Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou has cast doubt on Gallagher’s potential move to North London. The Australian tactician has wasted no time in bolstering his squad and may have shifted his focus away from the Chelsea midfielder.
One alternative that springs to mind is the young and promising Alex Scott. As Postecoglou seeks to build a team capable of executing his attacking philosophy, it wouldn’t be surprising if Tottenham opted for a fresh-faced talent like Scott.
Nevertheless, Mauricio Pochettino, currently in charge at Stamford Bridge, may have other plans for Gallagher. The Argentine manager reportedly views the midfielder as a player worthy of a fresh chance to prove himself in Chelsea’s first team.
The situation at Tottenham is intriguing, particularly considering the role of midfielders in Postecoglou’s system. The Australian’s preferred playing style demands a dynamic and creative number eight, a position that neither Tanguy Ndombele nor Giovani Lo Celso can truly call their own.

One player who can is Gallagher and unless Tottenham shift out Ndombele or Lo Celso, they are unlikely to move for the Blues man.
