Southampton’s outcast Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg “wants to join Tottenham” and Jose Mourinho “could use Kyle Walker-Peters as leverage to lower the asking price by £ 35 million”

  • Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is ready for Southampton’s exit door this summer
  • Dane dismissed as captain after failing to accept contract extension
  • He has a year left after telling the Saints that he wanted to leave
  • Spurs lead pursuit of former Bayern Munich midfielder

Former Southampton captain Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is reportedly planning to move to Tottenham this season.

The Dane was stripped of his captaincy at St Mary’s in June after failing to agree to a contract extension with 12 months remaining.

After informing the Saints of his desire to join a larger club, the armband was given to James Ward-Prowse, and Hojbjerg appeared only three times during the Restart project.

Tottenham is believed to be leading the hunt, and according to the Evening Standard, the 24-year-old is looking for a move to north London.

They say the Spurs are confident of lowering the asking price of £ 35 million that Southampton has placed in the midfield.

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is keen to acquire a midfielder, Eric Dier should go on defense.

He sees Hojbjerg as a realistic upgrade as he prepares for his second season at the club.

Mourinho could seek to use Kyle Walker-Peters, who is currently on loan on the south coast, as a weighting factor in the agreement.

The youngster has been a regular on the Ralph Hasenhuttl squad since the restart, which included victory over Manchester City and a draw at Manchester United on Monday evening.

Last week, Mourinho said there was room for 23-year-old Spurs, but would not oppose him if he wished to seek new pasture.
