Tottenham could compete with Man United for 24-year-old midfield powerhouse

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with the move for the Sporting CP midfielder Morten Hjulmand in recent months.

The two English clubs are keen on Hjulmand, but the player is open to staying at the Portuguese club beyond the season. It will be interesting to see if they can convince him to move to the Premier League in the summer.

It is no secret that Tottenham need to add more quality and depth in the middle of the park. The 24-year-old midfielder can operate as the central midfielder as well as a defensive midfielder. He will add physicality and defensive cover to the side. He has chipped in with four goals and four assists in all competitions and he will add creativity to the side as well.

Tottenham midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has been linked with the move away from the club and Hjulmand could be the ideal replacement for his compatriot at the North London club. The opportunity to join a big club in the Premier League could be an attractive proposition for most players. It will be interesting to see how the situation develops.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are in need of midfield reinforcements as well. Sofyan Amrabat will leave the club upon the expiry of his loan deal and the Red Devils will have to bring in a quality midfielder in the summer. The 24-year-old Sporting CP star certainly fits the profile and remains to be seen with the Red Devils can win the race for his signature.
