Tottenham edging closer to Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg transfer

According to a report from the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur are on the verge of signing Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in a deal worth £15m.

Hojbjerg is in the final year of his contract with Saints and had refused to pen a new deal. This led to him being removed from the club captaincy.

Hojbjerg close to joining Tottenham

The 24-year-old has been heavily linked with a switch to Tottenham for quite some time now. Spurs’ boss Jose Mourinho has identified the Danish international as his priority target heading into the next season.

However, negotiations hadn’t been going ahead smoothly as the two teams were quite apart when it came to the player’s valuation. Amidst this, Everton had also emerged as a suitor for the former Bayern Munich midfielder and had reportedly had an offer accepted by the Saints.

But Hojbjerg’s willingness to join Tottenham seems to have swayed the deal in our favour. As per the latest report from the Daily Mail, Spurs are close to arriving at an agreement with Southampton over a deal worth £15m.

The report also states that defender Kyle Walker-Peters, who spent the second half of the 2019/20 season on loan at Southampton, will be making the transfer permanent in a £12m deal. Both deals will be handled as standalone transfers and not a cash-plus-player swap. (h/t Daily Mail)

Given the lack of quality options at Mourinho’s disposal in the holding midfield position, this deal would be a major boost for Tottenham.

Hojbjerg is just 24 years of age, but has four years of Premier League experience under his belt. Having captained Southampton, he will also add a leadership presence on the field, which ought to make the team better. Seems like Daniel Levy & co. came through on this one.
