Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Pierre Emile Hojbjerg has been linked with a move away from the club in recent weeks.
The 28-year-old has struggled for regular game time at the north London club and he needs to leave in order to play regularly.
Journalist Florian Plettenberg claims that the midfielder is ‘open for a new challenge’ and he is ready to leave the Premier League club this month. Juventus are reportedly keen on signing the midfielder and it will be interesting to see if they can get a deal done.
Tottenham are prepared to let the player leave on loan this month as long as there is an obligation to buy included in the contract. Daniel Levy is not willing to sanction the player’s departure on a loan deal with an option to buy.

It is clear that the Premier League side are keen to get rid of the Denmark international permanently. The 28-year-old has been a loyal servant for the club since joining them from Southampton, but his style of play does not fit in with their new approach under Ange Postecoglou.
It makes sense for the two parties to go separate ways this month and it remains to be seen where the midfielder ends up. There is no doubt that he is good enough to play for the top clubs in Europe.
The Denmark international is still very much at the peak of his powers and he cannot afford to sit on the bench at Tottenham every week. A january move would be ideal for him at this stage of his career.
