Tottenham could keep Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg instead of selling him in January
As the January transfer window approaches, one name that continues to dominate headlines at Tottenham is Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. The Danish midfielder, who saw himself heavily linked with a move away from Spurs during the summer, finds himself at a crossroads in North London.
Amid Ange Postecoglou’s quest to reshape the midfield, Hojbjerg’s future has been under scrutiny since the summer. The 28-year-old, who boasts experience and quality, was on the radar of several clubs, including Atletico Madrid, during the previous window. Reports even suggested he turned down a last-minute move to Fulham on deadline day.
Despite this, Hojbjerg has encountered a challenging start to the season, with Postecoglou often favouring the likes of Pape Matar Sarr and Yves Bissouma over the Danish international. Consequently, speculations surrounding his potential departure have resurfaced, with Fabrizio Romano providing a fresh perspective on the situation.
In his latest YouTube video, Romano shared an update on Hojbjerg’s future, emphasizing that the midfielder remains open to a January transfer. He also noted that Juventus and other clubs are monitoring the situation. However, a potential exit might become complicated due to the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations, during which some Tottenham midfielders will be on international duty.
“Let’s see if it’s going to be January or the summer window because we know some Tottenham midfielders will go to the Africa Cup and this is why it could be complicated to give the green light to the exit of Hojbjerg.”
Hojbjerg’s journey at Tottenham has seen its fair share of twists and turns. The Danish midfielder was a linchpin under the tenures of Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho, consistently demonstrating his worth in the heart of the midfield.

Yet, since Postecoglou’s arrival, he has found himself descending the pecking order, raising questions about his compatibility with the new manager’s system.
Despite the challenges, Hojbjerg has displayed resilience and professionalism. He has made valuable contributions off the bench, showing his commitment to the team’s cause. His opportunity to make an impact is likely to increase, especially with Yves Bissouma serving a suspension following a red card in the recent 1-0 victory over Luton.
The coming months will be pivotal for Hojbjerg, as the January transfer window looms. Us supporters shall be closely monitoring his situation, aware of the midfielder’s potential departure.
