Tottenham received encouragement from Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl to go after Hojbjerg, after he admitted that the club will have to sell the midfielder as he is in the final year of his deal.

Following Hasenhuttl’s statements, Southampton chief executive Martin Semmens also went on to hint that the club are very much open to selling the Danish international, provided the right offer comes along.

Tottenham had made their interests known back in January itself, as per the report. At the time the club were quoted a transfer fee of £35m for the Dane. But now, given his contract situation and the overall financial picture of all clubs, there is an expectation that Southampton will lower the demand. (h/t Daily Star)

The report further adds that a transfer to Tottenham very much appeals to Hojbjerg and with Mourinho also intent on securing a new defensive midfielder, the club are poised to launch an offer for him.
