Sam Allardyce says £40m player who Tottenham want to sign has improved so much recently

Sam Allardyce believes reported Tottenham Hotspur target Conor Gallagher has improved so much recently.

The former Leeds boss was speaking on talkSPORT this morning and singled out one of Ange Postecoglou’s top transfer targets for praise.

Tottenham were heavily linked with a move for Conor Gallagher over the summer and even explored a deadline-day move for the midfielder.

Indeed, Spurs were attempting to offload Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in an attempt to bring in Gallagher.

A move to North London failed to materialise for the 23-year-old, despite Postecoglou viewing him as the ideal profile for his midfield.

Gallagher has since established himself as a regular starter at Chelsea under Mauricio Pochettino. And Sam Allardyce believes the midfielder has improved dramatically over the past couple of years.
