Aston Villa are actively pursuing Tottenham’s target Conor Gallagher (24, Chelsea).

The Express reported on Friday (Nov. 5) that a swap deal between Chelsea and Aston Villa would include England international Gallagher, but the Blues are intent on cashing in on him outright.

Aston Villa, led by Unai Emery, have finished fourth in the English Premier League this season, ahead of Tottenham. They are looking to bolster their squad as they compete in the UEFA Champions League next season.

Villa are looking to bolster their midfield and Gallagher is one of their favorites. Gallagher is a product of Chelsea’s academy. According to global publication The Athletic, Chelsea and Aston Villa have already started preliminary talks for the player.

Gallagher”s contract expires in the summer of 2025 and he wants to stay at Chelsea. However, 토토사이트 there have been no renewal talks yet. The Blues need to raise cash to avoid breaching the Premier League’s Revenue and Sustainability Regulations (PSR), and Gallagher is part of that.

Gallagher is valued at £50 million.

Chelsea have no intention of loaning Gallagher and see him as a cash asset. They believe it will ease their financial burden in the future.

However, Aston Villa are aware of Chelsea”s interest in Colombian striker John Duran, 21, and would like to sell him for cash in exchange for Gallagher. Aston Villa is hoping that Chelsea will be more attracted to Duran.

If Gallagher heads to Tottenham, Spurs, who have been consistently interested, 사설 토토사이트 will lose out. Gallagher is one of the midfield options that manager Ange Postecoglou wants to bring in this summer.

Tottenham have a busy summer transfer window ahead of them with a Europa League spot on the line next season. They’ll need to build a squad that fits Postecoglou’s tactics of attacking aggressively and pressing forward.

At the center of it all is Son Heung-min (32). It’s imperative that the midfield is strengthened to provide more opportunities for the strikers, including improving Son’s goal-scoring ability. James Maddison showed great chemistry with Son at the start of the season. However, since returning from injury, he hasn’t been quite the same player.

According to local media, Postecoglou is a big fan of Gallagher.

A BBC column described him as “a player who covers an unbelievable amount of ground and has an unbelievable attitude”.

Fansite Football Fancast also claimed on the same day that Gallagher’s prolific output would make him the perfect complement to Son Heung-min if he were to join Spurs. He would be a great synergy with Son, despite being incredibly expensive, according to chairman Daniel Levy.

Gallagher has scored seven goals and provided nine assists in 50 appearances this season. That’s better than the rest of the Tottenham midfield. Maddison has four goals and nine assists in 30 games, while Lo Celso has two goals and two assists in 24 games. They are better in terms of work ethic and record.

As a box-to-box midfielder, 안전놀이터 Gallagher’s move could eventually ease the defensive burden on strikers like Son Heung-min. These factors would allow the 32-year-old to focus more on scoring goals while minimizing his physical demands.

Gallagher, meanwhile, has been included in Gareth Southgate’s England squad. He is likely to be included in the final 26-man roster for Euro 2024. This could delay Gallagher’s decision on his future.
