Tottenham Hotspur reportedly place Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher and Barcelona winger Raphinha on a list of potential summer targets.

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly included Chelsea's Conor Gallagher and Barcelona's Raphinha on their list of potential summer targets.

Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou has strengthened his squad with a number of additions across his first two transfer windows, including the signings of Guglielmo Vicario, Micky van de Ven, Brennan Johnson, James Maddison and Radu Dragusin.

Postecoglou experienced a positive start to his tenure, collecting 26 points from his first 10 league games as Tottenham manager.

Although Spurs have continued to enjoy moments of promise, their Champions League hopes have been significantly dented by a four-game losing run.

Having picked up 60 points from 35 matches, Postecoglou's side are sitting in fifth place and seven points adrift of the top four with just three games left to play.

Spurs set to renew Gallagher interest

With Postecoglou keen to build a squad in his image, there are expected to be further changes in his third transfer window as Tottenham boss.

The 62-year-old recently revealed that he is preparing for summer exits as he looks to make room for potential new additions.

According to The Telegraph, Tottenham are considering a move for Gallagher after placing the England international on their list of possible transfer targets.

The report claims that Spurs are drawing up two plans for the summer transfer window – one for if they qualify for the Champions League and another for if they miss out on a top-four finish.

With Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg expected to depart, Spurs could decide to rekindle their interest in Gallagher after being linked with the midfielder in January.

However, Tottenham are only expected to pursue a deal for Gallagher if Chelsea drop their £50m asking price with just a year left to run on the player's contract.

Raphinha features on transfer shortlist

Spurs have also earmarked Everton's Amadou Onana as a transfer target, but are likely to face competition from the likes of Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Newcastle United.

As well as the midfield, Tottenham are seemingly keen to bolster their wide areas, with Raphinha believed to be on their radar.

Raphinha has been a regular fixture in the Barcelona side this season, scoring nine goals and providing 12 assists in 35 competitive appearances.

Although he is under contract until 2027, there has been a suggestion that Barcelona will entertain offers for the Brazilian this summer.

In addition to Raphinha, Spurs are weighing up a potential move for Juventus' Samuel Iling-Junior, who is set to enter the final 12 months of his contract.

Spurs are also keen to recruit a new centre-back, leading to speculation that they are targeting Bournemouth's Lloyd Kelly.

The 25-year-old is set to become a free agent this summer, but recent rumours suggest that he could be on his way to Newcastle.
