Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has left the door open to joining Tottenham while addressing reports linking him to North London.
As the London Evening Standard details, the Danish midfielder has been earmarked as a summer target for Spurs since January, having played a leading role in Southampton’s second half of the season turnaround.
Although he answered the question over a potential move to Spurs with a straight bat, Hojbjerg didn’t completely hide his intrigue.
“It’s a big club and I also think Christian Eriksen has positive memories from there,” Hojbjerg told Viaplay Sport Live, via Danish outlet B.T.
“The most important thing is that I concentrate on Southampton and concentrate when the season starts again that I can continue where I left off. Whatever happens in the future, you have to take it as it comes.”
All the pieces are in place for this one, I feel.
Hojbjerg is entering the last year of his contract and, at 24, is an attractive age and yet has top-flight and international experience beyond his years.
He would improve our starting XI as the primary holding midfielder but is unlikely to be on the radar of clubs who can offer him a better package.
And, according to the Standard, the former Bayern Munich player is represented by Pini Zahavi, who has a good relationship with Daniel Levy having brokered recent deals for Jose Mourinho and Gedson Fernandes.
Make it happen, Daniel.
