Tottenham edging closer to Hojbjerg deal/Kim-min Jae & David Brooks tipped to join Spurs

A fresh update regarding Tottenham’s pursuit of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has emerged online, with a number of other players potentially set to be targeted by the Londoners this summer having also been revealed.

Hojbjerg looking likely to leave Southampton

Whatever happens in the summer, it looks as though Hojbjerg will be departing Southampton.

The Dane, who joined the Saints from FC Bayern Munich, has been a key figure on the South Coast for several years now.

However, with Hojbjerg having less than a year left to run on his current contract, and the midfielder seemingly not keen to sign a new one, Ralph Hasenhuttl recently stripped him of the Southampton captaincy.

Hojbjerg also saw his game time dramatically reduced, with the Saints star having started in just one of his side’s last seven league outings.

At the same time, Hojbjerg has been linked with a number of top sides of late, which isn’t too much of a surprise given his ability and contract situation.

Three such clubs come in the form of AjaxManchester City and Tottenham.

It is the latter of these side who have been most persistently linked with the 24-year-old, though, with it claimed earlier this month that Spurs were willing to use Kyle Walker-Peters, currently on loan at Southampton, as part of a deal to land the midfielder.

And now, according to Sky Sports News, Tottenham are edging closer to a deal to sign Hojbjerg.

Spurs are believed to have offered £15m for the midfielder, which is £10m less than the Saints’ valuation, and £4m less than what Everton are understood to have offered.

However, crucially for the Lilywhites, Sky also claim that Hojbjerg wants to join Tottenham.

The allure of Spurs will likely also have been boosted this past weekend, when the north Londoners secured a Europa League spot.

Spurs interested in Jae & Brooks

Qualifying for the Europa League will of course also benefit Tottenham financially.

And now, the Evening Standard have claimed that Jose Mourinho should be allowed to spend any money which the club manage to secure through sales, with all of Danny Rose, Kyle Walker-Peters, Juan Foyth and Serge Aurier potentially on the market.

The same report also provided an insight into some more of Tottenham’s potential transfer targets.

As well as confirming that Spurs are confident of landing Hojbjerg, the Lilywhites are believed to have enquired about Beijing Guoan’s Kim-min Jae.

The capital outfit are also admirers of Bournemouth duo Callum Wilson and David Brooks.

The former of this pair, meanwhile, could, as per a recent report, be available for as little as £10m, following the Cherries’ relegation.
