With just a few days of the current transfer window remaining, a number of Premier League sides are still yet to complete a signing. 

Last January top flight clubs in England spent more than £800 in total on new arrivals, but so far this month several sides including Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United, and Liverpool are all yet to complete a move.

The Blues have spent more than £1 billion over the past three transfer windows, and it appears that their previous spending may now be restricting them in the current window.

According to Football Insider, Chelsea will have to sell one of their most important players if they are to make any signings in the final days of the window.

The report claims that the West London outfit would have to sell a big-name star this month to fund any January business, due to the Financial Fair Play restrictions that they must adhere to.

While the club are said to be keen on signing new players, they will have to first offload at least one of their current crop of players to do so.

Gallagher remains a target for rivals Tottenham Hotspur

Midfielder Conor Gallagher has been heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge for several months now, and the report also claims that rivals Tottenham Hotspur are plotting one final move for the Englishman.

Spurs have been touted as a possible destination for the player if he were to depart Chelsea, but it had previously been suggested that Gallagher would stay put after establishing himself as a regular in Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

After previously spending time on loan at several clubs including Crystal Palace, the England international returned to Chelsea at the start of last season and quickly broke into the first team.

He has now played 73 times for the Blues across all competitions, scoring three goals and providing seven assists.

Gallagher, 23, has also captained his boyhood club on a number of occasions in the absence of Reece James and Ben Chilwell.
