Tottenham are very close to signing Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, according to multiple reports.

Two of football’s most reliable journalists when it comes to transfers, David Ornstein and Fabrizio Romano, claim Spurs have now agreed a £15 million fee with Southampton. Ornstein adds the fee could rise to £19 million.

Hojbjerg has apparently agreed a five-year contract and will undergo his medical at the beginning of next week. But how much will he be earning at Tottenham?

Football Insider believes the Denmark international has secured a salary worth £100,000 per week and a ‘multi-million pound signing-on fee’.

A few years ago that would have seemed a huge amount, but £100,000 is probably now par for the course for a midfielder at a club towards the top end of the Premier League table.

Hojbjerg is like to be a regular starter for Spurs, replacing either Harry Winks or Moussa Sissoko to provide support for Giovani Lo Celso in central midfield.

With that in mind, he is probably worthy of those wages and could prove to be a coup at just £15 million.



  1. Love the business we are doing now ….Wilson and Diallo to provide strike options next and Castagne or Emerson at RB and get the deadwood out.

  2. Please bring Son’s international team mate, he’s a fantastic defender who will help keeping clean sheets for Spurs COYS

  3. Lots of talk about right back and Aurier definitely needs upgrading, but there is no way Ben Davies should have left back all to himself all season. He simply is not good enough and was far better as cover when Danny Rose was good and fit. We really need a left back too as it looks like Sessegnon plays further forward and will go out on loan. Tanganga could have a few games there, but he is not left footed.
