Juventus hold ‘exploratory chat’ for 28-year-old Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg

Juventus’ interest in Tottenham Hotspur’s midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has become a topic of much speculation and discussion in the football world. The Italian giants have been keeping a close eye on the 28-year-old Dane, with their director Cristiano Giuntoli reportedly an admirer of his experience and flexibility.

Juventus, keen to reinforce their midfield in the upcoming winter transfer window, see Hojbjerg as a prime target. His limited game time under Tottenham’s new manager Ange Postecoglou has only fueled these transfer rumours.

Hojbjerg, who joined Tottenham in 2020 from Southampton, has proven himself in the Premier League, becoming an essential part of Spurs’ first team. However, with Postecoglou’s arrival, his status within the team has shifted, leading to decreased playing time and speculations about his future at the club.

Despite this, Tottenham’s stance on a potential transfer is quite strategic. They are not willing to let Hojbjerg go unless they secure a suitable replacement, indicating the high value they place on him. This approach is influenced by the impending departure of defensive midfielders Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr to the Africa Cup of Nations, making Hojbjerg’s role in the team even more crucial.

The value Tottenham places on Hojbjerg is evident, with the club previously demanding up to £35 million for him. This high valuation, along with Tottenham’s conditions for his transfer, may complicate Juventus’ plans.

Juventus’ interest is driven by their need for midfield reinforcements, especially with player suspensions affecting their squad depth. Despite Hojbjerg’s situation at Tottenham, he remains a consummate professional and a viable option for the Italian club.

Tottenham’s search for a potential replacement for Hojbjerg has been challenging. Their interest in Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher as a possible replacement hasn’t borne fruit, as Gallagher is expected to stay at Stamford Bridge.

This leaves Tottenham still searching for a suitable candidate to fill Hojbjerg’s potential void. Meanwhile, the potential return of Rodrigo Bentancur from injury could provide a boost to Tottenham’s midfield options.
