Chelsea may be set to add to their squad over the coming days with the signing of Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall from Leicester City. understands that the Blues have made their move for the talented midfielder after a sparkling season under new boss Enzo Maresca during their time together at the King Power Stadium.

The 25-year-old was a pivotal figure in the Foxes' Championship title success, registering 12 goals and 15 assists as the team pipped Ipswich Town to the league title. Brighton & Hove Albion were winning the race for the Leicester academy graduate but it is now the west London club who have moved to the front of the queue for the player.

Leicester are said to be open to selling their academy product as they come under huge pressure to abide with the Premier League's Profitability and Sustainability Rules (PSR) this summer. Already having a number of options in midfield as things stand, Dewsbury-Hall moving to Stamford Bridge could potentially pave the way for Conor Gallagher to exit the club.

The England international's future once again remains up in the air amid plenty of speculation 12 months ago that he would depart Chelsea. A move away never came to fruition, though, and he instead became an integral part of Mauricio Pochettino's side and even captained the Blues on a number of occasions.

Gallagher's future once again remains a big talking point this summer, especially due to the fact that Monday will mark the beginning of the final year of his Chelsea contract. If he is not to be part of Maresca's plans at Chelsea for the 2024/25 term, last season's Carabao Cup finalists will need to part with the midfielder before the summer transfer deadline or else they run the risk of losing him on a free transfer next summer.

If Gallagher is to bid farewell to Chelsea, he will certainly have a number of options available to him after making quite the impression in the Premier League. The England international is a player of interest to Tottenham and Ange Postecoglou is a big fan of the Chelsea ace.

Midfield is a position Tottenham need to look at this summer and the Epsom-born player would certainly provide them with more quality in the central areas. Chelsea and Tottenham tend not to deal with one another but an attractive offer from the latter could prove too good for their London rivals to turn down.

Whereas Dewsbury-Hall could make the move to Chelsea over the coming days if an agreement between both clubs can be struck, Gallagher's participation at Euro 2024 in Germany may mean that his future is resolved one way or another once England's time at the tournament has come to an end. As well as interest in Gallagher, Aston Villa's Jacob Ramsey is another player who has been linked with Tottenham as they look to bolster their midfield options. understands that the club have enquired again about his availability this month after Johan Lange approached Villa in January about the talented youngster. Tottenham have so far only brought in Timo Werner ahead of the new season and supporters will have their fingers crossed that a few more follow in the weeks ahead.
