Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has been linked with a move away from the club in recent months.
The 28-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at the North London club and he needs to leave in order to play regularly at the stage of his career. Italian giants Juventus are reportedly keen on him and there have been rumours that Tottenham could demand €30 million for him.
However, it seems that the Italian outfit are hoping to sign him on a bargain. A report via Tutto Juve now claims that Tottenham are ‘willing’ to send the player out on loan during the January transfer window only if there is an obligation to buy included in the contract. They ‘would like to close’ the transfer quickly.
It will be interesting to see if Juventus are prepared to accept the conditions of the deal. The Italian giants need to sign a quality midfielder in January, especially with Paul Pogba facing a lengthy ban for doping.
Hojbjerg has proven himself in the Premier League over the years and he should prove to be a quality acquisition. The 28-year-old would look to prove himself in the Italian league as well and he has the qualities to establish himself as a key player for Max Allegri.
Juventus will look to compete for major trophies this season and they need to bring in the right reinforcement during the January window. Signing the Tottenham player on loan with an obligation to buy could prove to be a shrewd investment for them.
