Rudy Galetti confirms Tottenham would bid for Conor Gallagher if Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg leaves
Speaking to Tribal Football, popular journalist Rudy Galetti has confirmed that Tottenham Hotspur would likely bid for Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher in January if Pierre Emile-Hojbjerg leaves the club.
Galetti has hinted at a potential move that could reshape the midfield dynamics at the North London club. The subject of his revelation? None other than Chelsea’s dynamic midfielder, Conor Gallagher.

Gallagher remained in the royal blue of Stamford Bridge, leaving us to wonder what might have been. He has been sensational in Mauricio Pochettino’s side and is one of the silver linings for a struggling side.
The tantalizing prospect of Conor Gallagher donning the famous Lilywhite jersey could become a reality, albeit with an interesting condition – the potential departure of Danish maestro Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
Here is what Galetti had to say about the future of the talented Chelsea star and links to Tottenham
“Different story for Gallagher: his contract expires in June 2025 and there wouldn’t be a rush on Chelsea’s side to talk about a possible contract renewal. However, the Blues want to start discussions anyway, having already had to resist pressure from other clubs this summer. Conor – as is well known – attracted the attention of many Premier League teams and continues to do so. For this reason, let’s keep an eye on Tottenham, already in January: Spurs could make a concrete move following the possible farewell of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg”

For Hojbjerg, a change of scenery appears to beckon, as he seeks new challenges in his career. This could well pave the way for a Gallagher-shaped opportunity to knock on Tottenham’s door.
So, why should Tottenham fans be excited about the prospect of Conor Gallagher? First and foremost, his youth and potential are undeniable. At just 23, Gallagher represents the future of English football and could be a cornerstone of Tottenham’s midfield for years to come.
