Agent of Tottenham star meets Barcelona chief regarding January move

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has been linked with a move away from the club in recent months.

The 28-year-old was a key player for the north London club under previous manager Antonio Conte but he has fallen down the pecking order under the new regime.

Ange Postecoglou prefers a free-flowing attacking system and the Denmark international is not a good fit for his style of play. Naturally, there have been speculations surrounding his future at the club and he is expected to move on in the coming months.

Initially, the midfielder was heavily linked with the move to Italy and Juventus are thought to be keen on securing his services. However, recent reports state that the midfielder’s agent has now held talks with Barcelona regarding a potential January move.

Barcelona could certainly use more depth and quality in the central midfield, especially after the injury blow to Gavi.

A report from Mundo Deportivo via Team Talk claims that the Denmark international’s agent has met with Barcelona president Joan Laporta. It remains to be seen whether Barcelona come forward with a concrete proposal to sign the player.

The 28-year-old certainly has the experience and technical attributes to thrive in Spanish football and he could prove to be a quality acquisition.

Tottenham are lacking in depth in the central midfield department and players like Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr will head to the African Cup of Nations in January. It remains to be seen whether they are ready to weaken the midfield even further by letting the Denmark international leave the club.

Spurs will be desperate for Champions League qualification and they cannot afford to weaken the squad further.
