Tottenham are confident of beating Everton to the signature of Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, according to the Guardian.

The 24-year-old has just one year left on his Saints contract and has already expressed his desire to challenge for major titles and play in the Champions League in the near future.

Reports from the Telegraph earlier this week suggested that the Toffee’s had a £25m bid accepted for Hojbjerg, although the Liverpool Echo quickly denied those rumours and revealed that the Merseyside outfit are yet to table a bid for the ex Bayern Munich man.

Prior to the restart of the Premier League last month, Hojbjerg was stripped of the captaincy and has started just once for Southampton in their previous six matches.

Despite Everton’s interest, Spurs remain frontrunners to sign the Denmark international – especially with Jose Mourinho keen on signing a defensive midfielder after selling Victor Wanyama in January and then moving Eric Dier back into the defence before lockdown – and are confident of getting a deal over the line.

Kyle Walker-Peters, whose on loan with the Saints, has been linked with a permanent move to St Mary’s after an impressive spell on the South Coast since joining in January, although it appears that the right-back might be signed in a separate transfer and not in a part-exchange deal for Spurs to bring Hojbjerg to north London.



  1. I don’t believe 99% of what I read concerning transfers, especially concerning Spurs, but it does seem very obvious that Spurs are interested in the player and the player wants to join Spurs.
    So another one which will go to transfer deadline day with Daniel Levy saying he didn’t have enough time to get it over the line.

  2. Spurs have enough good players on their books including academay players the real issue is Jose style of play is very old fashioned, apart from Portp everywhere he goes he has to spand huge sums of money , if he was that great he would be able to do wonders with what he has, instead of moanng and graoning all the time, I have never rated him s a manager regardless of the trophies has won- my type of manager is Poch, people forget how long it tok alex ferguson to win a trophy at United– some of the commentators who make omments nowadays were not that great as players punditery seem to be the best they can do ..

    Bring back POch anytime and give him the money,,, COYS.. I am hoping we do not get into any European competion this season, because we need to take stock and launch an attack on th elegue this season, we have all the playeers we need aprt from another striker, and why is it that we annot play two forwrds is really a mystery to me- I would also sell Harry Kane if he feels he is bigger than the club- in my book he should never have started in the CL final 2019 should have been on the bench was not fit of rady for such a game… COYS

    • We have all the players we need except a 2nd striker??? I’ll have a pint of whatever you’ve been drinking….

  3. I 100% do not believe anything written about Spurs and the transfer market simply because these reports are written by story tellers and two Bob hacks linking Spurs to every Random player across the World irrespective of cost. One minute Spurs haven’t got a pot to piss in and have to sell players in order to buy, the next minute they are supposedly interested in buying a player valued at £85M as a back up to Harry Kane, you just got to laugh. However, they are confident that the dunces amongst us will lap it all up and hang on their every word as though it’s gospel.

  4. Spurs talk a lot about transfer
    Stop it for now and sell Davies Aurier and Lamela then get new 3 layers in place of them is the est optional

  5. Lols, I’m highly disappointed with your comment as regards Mourinho, you need not to respect him, besides do you know how much it cost poch to lure the likes of Sanchez, aurier , Moura, sissoko, wanyama, lo ceslo, won and the likes without achievement. When he won the treble at intermilan and porto, does he parades the likes of ronaldo de lima, zidane, beckham, figo or meddi. Please think before you criticize. You can only criticize is pattern, but so far he is successful, who are you to do that? I learnt guardiola bought the likes of mahrez, mendy, stones, cancelo, laporte, ederson, bernando, jesus, gundogan, rodrigo for free. With that he is yet to claim a champions league trophy in his last 7years
