Home Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Tottenham are working on a deal for Southampton star Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, according to Foot Mercato, as relayed by Ricky Sacks. 

According to @Santi_J_FM, Spurs have already made an offer for Hojbjerg, who was stripped of the Saints captaincy by Ralph Hasenhuttl. Tottenham have been chasing Hojbjerg for several months after Jose Mourinho identified him as a top transfer target, via Sky Sports.

The Times reported that Southampton are holding out for £35m for their former captain, even though Spurs had hoped he would be available for £20m. It is worth pointing out that the Lilywhites spent £53.8m on the club’s record signing Tanguy Ndombele last year.

Spurs are now in negotiations with the Denmark midfielder’s representative Pini Zahavi to reach an agreement to finalise the transfer.

Mourinho has paid close attention to Hojbjerg’s performances over the past couple of years. The Dane, who previously played for Bayern Munich, has made 30 appearances for the Saints this season, supplying one assist, winning 2.6 tackles per game, averaging 1.5 interceptions and completing 1.6 clearances on average (via WhoScored).

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg Philippe Coutinho

Zahavi, who orchestrated Neymar’s world-record transfer from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain, is widely credited with bringing Mourinho to England in the first place. The pair have a strong working relationship which may work in Daniel Levy’s favour.

Mourinho is well aware that he will be restricted by a tight budget in the upcoming window as the Lilywhites wrestle with the financial repercussions of the coronavirus crisis.

While Southampton’s asking price should be more than affordable, as Levy splashed the cash to sign Ndombele last summer, clubs are operating in unprecedented circumstances. As it stands, fans will have to wait and see what deals can be made before the transfer market closes.

Tottenham fans, should Daniel Levy sign Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the summer? Let us know in the comments section below!
