Ange Postecoglou rates Tottenham's chances of Gallagher transfer before deadline

Ange Postecoglou has revealed that he believes it is ‘unlikely’ that Tottenham bolster their ranks any further this month. Spurs have been heavily linked with Chelsea playmaker Conor Gallagher this week, though there does not appear to be confidence that an agreement can be reached with their London rivals.

Tottenham have been one of the busiest Premier League clubs in the transfer window this month, with Postecoglou being rewarded for guiding his side to such a strong start to the campaign.

Spurs bolstered their attacking ranks by hijacking Manchester United’s move for Timo Werner. The ex-Chelsea forward opted to head to north London on a loan-to-buy deal, with Tottenham keen to help the Germany international get his career back on track and prove himself in England.

Postecoglou then addressed his lack of defensive depth by acquiring the services of Radu Dragusin from Genoa, managing to fend off the efforts of Bayern Munich to strike a deal worth £25million for the Romania international.

Reports have suggested that Spurs’ spending spree is howing no signs of slowing down during the final days of the transfer window, with it being claimed that the higher powers at Totternham were considering reigniting their interest in Chelsea playmaker Gallagher.

However, Postecoglou appeared to play down his chances of landing the England international, or any other reinforcements, when speaking ahead of his side’s match against Brentford on Wednesday night. Asked whether he was expecting any further incomings or outgoings, to which he replied: “Unlikely I’d say. I don’t see any incoming.

“Outgoings are a little bit different because I’m not as engaged on that. Others are dealing with that but I’d say also unlikely.”
