‘What a mess’ – Jamie Carragher in disbelief over Tottenham transfer rumour

Jamie Carragher is astonished at the reports suggesting that Chelsea are willing to sell Conor Gallagher to Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs Web has been disseminating a plethora of rumors over the last several weeks that indicate Chelsea has placed Gallagher up for sale and the Lilywhites are prepared to make a move for the 23-year-old after their attempt to get him last summer failed (talkSPORT).

The previous few days have seen a further escalation of rumors, with Gianluca Di Marzio stating over the weekend that negotiations between the two London clubs on the England international have started and that an agreement worth approximately £40 million may be reached.

Carragher confused by Gallagher to Spurs rumours

Pundits have already reacted strongly to these rumors; Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, for example, urged the Chelsea leadership not to consider moving Gallagher (Amazon Prime Sport – 7:08 pm, December 27).

The Dutchman made the observation that in addition to being a vital member of Mauricio Pochettino’s team, the midfielder also brings a wealth of leadership qualities to the group.

Now, Carragher is the most recent commentator to question the rationale behind trading Gallagher, citing the notion as evidence of the Blues’ owners’ ineptitude.


One would hope that the Chelsea board do not change their stance on Gallagher as a result of all the negative reactions from fans and pundits. Tottenham should perhaps look to strike a deal as soon as they can as they might not get another opportunity to sign the 23-year-old.
