Tottenham has continued their pursuit of Southampton’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and a deal for his transfer appears to be getting closer and closer.
The Dane has told the south coast team that he will not be signing a new deal with them and that he wants to join a bigger team if an offer comes.
Sky Sports claims that Tottenham is being rivalled for his signature by Everton and the Toffees have already tabled a £19m bid for him.
Hojbjerg wants to join Spurs as they will be playing in Europe next season, but the Lilywhites have tabled just a £15m offer for his signature which is £10m lower than the £25m that the Saints want, but a deal can still be reached.
Tottenham’s Kyle Walker-Peters has been on loan at Southampton since the start of the year and the right-back has impressed enough to make the Saints want to keep him with them permanently.
The Sun is now reporting that the Lilywhites are looking to include a permanent move the other way for Walker-Peters as a sweetener in the deal.
This should make the deal happen, but it depends on how much Tottenham and Southampton value the right back.
Jose Mourinho plans to make additions to his team ahead of next season, and Hojbjerg will be a top one.
No, claiming hojberg is not.
Not a chance kwp couldnt get a game under 2 managers we claiming he worth 30+?
Should be them giving us money and holgberg
No but 10mil +kwp =20mil bid or 15+kwp may do it
They will want KWP, Levy has got the ace in the deal and will play that card to get what he wants, if we are really after Hojbjerg that is.
I agree, this lad gets up and down well and will probably get his foot in but other than that he’s a workhorse and workhorses don’t fetch the same as thoroughbreds, especially right now.
A month ago when trying to suggest how much we could bring in, by selling our unwanted players I think I put a figure of £7-£10m on Kwp and it was laughed at as ridiculous and over priced,possibly fanciful.After 2-3 good games do we think he is now £15m? If so great.Any concrete interest in either Cantwell or. Brooks,both heading to the championship.
Reality check guys.
Captain of Stains v a player neither Pochettino or Mourinho rate?
Echo all the comments below, no way is this guy worth more than KWP.
If Hojbjerg is valued at £25 million then Walker – Peters has to worth £35 million, that’ll be Hojbjerg and £10 million please.
KWP & £10m? Saints are getting a good deal if it’s any more.
