Tottenham could offer Kyle Walker-Peters in part-exchange to sign Southampton captain Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, according to Football Insider.
Earlier this month we relayed a Telegraph story claiming Spurs are yet to make a final decision on pursuing Hojbjerg this summer. But the midfielder did recently admit he is ready to play at the “next level” after four years at Southampton.
Meanwhile, Walker-Peters is currently on loan at St. Mary’s, where he will finish the season if and when the Premier League campaign resumes amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Football Insider claims Tottenham are ready to offer Walker-Peters – who is apparently valued at £15 million – to Southampton in order to tempt the south coast club into letting Hojbjerg leave for north London.
The Denmark international has just one year left on his contract with the Saints, so Spurs will probably be hoping to sign him for a reduced fee or as part of an exchange deal.
It would certainly make sense for Tottenham to offload Walker-Peters, who struggled to get any game time under Jose Mourinho. If Southampton are keen to keep the right-back, perhaps Spurs will be able to get their man in exchange.
