Tottenham Hotspur and Juventus are engaged in a tug-of-war over the future of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (28).
Italian media ‘Calciomercato’ reported on the 25th (Korean time), “Tottenham wants to sell Hojbjerg outright, while Juventus prefers to sign him outright after a six-month loan.”
Hojbjerg was once considered a key midfielder for Tottenham. Since leaving Southampton and joining Tottenham in 2020, he has instilled stability in Tottenham’s midfield with his excellent physique and active pressure.
The situation has changed dramatically this season. Tottenham coach Anger Postecoglou preferred to use Yves Visou and Pape Sar as starting midfielders rather than Hojbjerg.
He rarely got a chance to compete. Before the 9th round of the league against Fulham on the 24th, Hojbjerg had not started a single game in the league.
Even his starting appearance against Fulham didn’t mean much. Hojbjerg performed better than expected against Fulham, but is expected to return to the bench when Bissouma returns from his suspension.
There is a high possibility that he will leave Tottenham. Transfer market expert Fabricio Romano said, “It could be next January or it could be summer, but Hojbjerg is definitely looking for a new challenge.”토스카지노 도메인
Juventus is mentioned as a likely destination. Juventus is said to have recently decided to sign Hojbjerg after watching his performance against Kazakhstan through a scout.
The stumbling block is negotiations with Tottenham. According to this report, Tottenham demanded 30 million euros (approximately 42.8 billion won) for Hojbjerg’s transfer fee, while Juventus proposed a six-month loan with an option to sign him outright.
As negotiations are sluggish, the possibility of remaining is being raised. Calciomercato reported, “Tottenham may withdraw its plan to sell Hojbjerg to fill the voids of Bissouma and Sarr participating in the Africa Cup of Nations.”
Juventus is not without measures. It is reported that Juventus is considering Calvin Phillips (27, Manchester City) as the next best option if the signing of Hojbjerg fails.
