London club considering a move for Tottenham midfielder

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur are gearing up for an impactful summer as they aim to refine their squad for the upcoming season.

Among the potential departures from the club is midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, who has attracted interest from several clubs, including Fulham.

According to GiveMeSport, Fulham are considering the Danish international as a potential replacement for Joao Palhinha.

With Bayern Munich expressing strong interest in Palhinha, his departure from Craven Cottage seems imminent.

Marco Silva is focused on signing a player with proven Premier League experience to address the gap, positioning Hojbjerg as an ideal candidate.

Fulham’s pursuit of Hojbjerg aligns with their need for a solid defensive midfielder to stabilize their lineup.

Hojbjerg is now in the final year of his contract, having joined Spurs from Southampton in 2020 on a 5-year contract.

Last season, Hojbjerg was primarily used as a substitute under Ange Postecoglou, starting only 21% of Premier League games and making just eight starts in 36 appearances.

This limited playing time has intensified Hojbjerg’s desire to move on from North London in search of more consistent first-team opportunities.

However, Fulham will face competition from a number of clubs including Atletico Madrid, Juventus, Fenerbahce and Napoli.

In fact, it has been reported that the Turkish club have already started negotiations with Tottenham over a deal for the 28-year-old.

Tottenham are said to be seeking £20m for his transfer and Ange has also given the club the green light to sell him.

As Spurs approach this transfer window, the sale of Hojbjerg could generate the necessary funds to strengthen other areas of their squad.
