Tottenham have been linked with a move for the Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the recent weeks and it seems like they have made their move to sign the player.
We covered reports yesterday that Spurs have lodged a cash-plus-player offer for the 24-year-old central midfielder.
It will be interesting to see if Southampton find the offer appealing. Hojbjerg is expected to leave the Saints this summer and Spurs need someone like him.
Recently, the Danish midfielder was stripped of the club captaincy because of the uncertainty surrounding his future.
Hojbjerg has been linked with Everton as well and it remains to be seen where he ends up this summer. Apparently, he is valued at around £35m.
The 24-year-old is well settled in the Premier League and he could make an immediate impact if he moves to Tottenham. The Londoners need a midfield controller alongside Sissoko and Ndombele.
Hojbjerg would help them set the tempo of the game and recycle possession. Mourinho needs someone of his skill set to truly dominate the midfield battles.
Some of the Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the reported offer.
Here is what they had to say on Twitter earlier.
Would take him, but don’t think he starts for us

Regardless of tier, this feels like a deal that has legs and could get done. Good player and would fill CDM role as well as provide strong leadership.

So while we’re trying to get him for £5m plus a player Southampton don’t want, he’ll sign for someone else.

Maybe not at first, but we don’t have a good DM, so he will see no competition in that position
