Tottenham Hotspur continued their impressive start to the Premier League season with a 5-2 victory over Burnley on Saturday. 

Club captain Son Heung-Min scored a hat-trick at Turf Moor, with Cristian Romero and James Maddison also on the scoresheet.

The Lilywhites have won three of their first four league games and remain unbeaten, leaving them second in the table at present.

New signing Brennan Johnson wasn’t involved in the victory over the Clarets, but the Wales international will likely make his debut against Sheffield United after the international break.

Johnson signed for Spurs from Nottingham Forest on deadline day, and it has since emerged that the North London outfit also had a late bid rejected for a midfielder.

As per Football Insider, Tottenham had a £40 million offer for Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher rejected on Friday.

The report claims that Spurs had been interested in the England international for much of the summer but were ultimately unable to agree a deal, with their offer falling short of Chelsea’s £45 million valuation of the player.

Gallagher, 22, graduated from Chelsea’s academy and enjoyed a superb breakthrough season last term, making 45 appearances across all competitions.

The midfielder, who has previously spent time on loan at both West Bromwich Albion and Crystal Palace, has started all five of the Blues’ matches so far this season and captained his boyhood club for the first time when they faced AFC Wimbledon on Wednesday.

Despite featuring regularly last term, Gallagher’s chances of doing so this season may have been hindered by the arrivals of fellow central midfielders Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia this summer.

Fellow London side West Ham United were also rumoured to be interested in the Englishman, but a move never materialised and he ultimately stayed put at Stamford Bridge.
