Hojbjerg’s future at Tottenham had already come under scrutiny during the summer transfer window, with Atletico Madrid showing interest in signing him.
Reports had suggested that his playing style might not align with the attacking brand of football that manager Ange Postecoglou aims to implement at the club.
The 28-year-old Danish midfielder joined Tottenham in 2020 after impressing with his performances for Southampton.
Since his arrival, Hojbjerg has been a consistent and reliable presence in the midfield.
However, it’s important to keep into consideration that the managers he played under all employed a passive style of play which perhaps suited the Dane.
Ange Postecoglou’s style of play is completely opposite to the previous managers, with him demanding a much more attacking football.
With the likes of Yves Bissouma, James Maddison, and Bentancur/Sarr in the squad, Tottenham seems to have midfield options that better fit the new style of play.
Hojbjerg’s role in the team could diminish further once Bentancur returns from his injury.
The decision to part ways with his agent suggests that Hojbjerg is actively considering his options.
A potential January move could be on the horizon, depending on the offers that come his way.
