Tottenham are expected to re-open talks with Southampton over a deal for midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, according to the Daily Mail.
Last week we relayed word from the Guardian suggesting Spurs are confident of securing a deal for Hojbjerg, who has just one year left on his current contract. The Saints stripped him of the captaincy when he made it clear he won’t be extending his deal.
The Telegraph claims Everton have already had a £25 million offer accepted for Hjojberg, but the latest update indicates Tottenham are still very much in for the former Bayern Munich ace.
The Mail believes Spurs are set to ‘renew discussions’ with Southampton, who are apparently holding out for £25 million. The report also suggests Hojbjerg has already told Everton he would rather move to north London than Goodison Park.
If all of the above stories are taken into consideration, it sounds like it’s just a matter of time until Tottenham make a breakthrough, but Southampton could easily lose patience if Spurs don’t meet their valuation soon.
