Tottenham are yet to make a final decision on a move for Southampton captain Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, according to the Telegraph.
Back in January we relayed a Sky Sports story that claimed Spurs had made Hjojberg one of their top transfer targets for this coming summer. And now, the Telegraph is claiming the Londoners are still keen on the midfielder.
However, the report suggests Tottenham will wait until the coronavirus pandemic ends to make a final decision on whether an offer will be made.
It is believed Hjojberg will be ‘affordable’ to Spurs because of his contract situation. The 24-year-old Denmark international’s current deal expires at the end of next season.
Everton are also said to be interested but Tottenham look more likely to qualify for European football than the Toffees, which perhaps makes a move to Jose Mourinho’s side more likely.
Spurs have plenty of options in central midfield but the level of quality needs to improve if they are to push for a Champions League spot next season.
