Ralph Hasenhuttl hints at Southampton exit for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg

As reported by the Evening Standard, Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has hinted that midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg could be on his way out of the club this summer, amid interest from Tottenham Hotspur.

Hojbjerg has been with Southampton since 2016, having arrived from Bayern Munich. The midfielder has grown into a key player at the St. Mary’s during his time at the club. So much so that, he was named captain of the team this season.

However, the Danish international was stripped off of the captaincy recently, after he refused to put pen to a new contract. With his current deal expiring in less than a year, Hojbjerg has been heavily linked with an exit, with Tottenham emerging as his most likely destination. (h/t Standard)

Indeed, Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has identified the 24-year-old as his priority target for the defensive midfield position, while Hojbjerg himself believed to keen on moving to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. (h/t Standard)

And now, Saints’ boss Hasenhuttl has dropped a major hint that the former Bayern Munich midfielder may very well be on his way out of the club. (h/t Standard)

“I’m always scared that players playing well in our team are interesting for others. If they then outperform and another club comes and says, ‘He’s interesting for us’, then we cannot stop them going. This is normal for us.”

It goes without saying that adding Hojbjerg would boost the quality of our midfield department to a great extent. The Dane has proven himself in the Premier League for years now. Given his age, he would be a long-term solution to our defensive midfield problems as well.

Hopefully, the club manages to close the deal to sign him at the earliest.
