Football Insider has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur have informed Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg that he is free to leave in January if they can secure a replacement.
The Athletic reported on Wednesday that Spurs are ready to listen to offers for Hojbjerg and Eric Dier in January, with the publication adding that the Dane’s preference is to join Juventus if the Serie A club push for him.
Gianluca Di Marzio then revealed a day later that Juve’s pursuit of the Tottenham man had been boosted as Spurs had changed their stance and were ready to agree an initial loan deal for the midfielder as long as it comes with an obligation to buy.
Spurs inform Hojbjerg of their stance
According to Football Insider, Tottenham have now communicated to Hojbjerg that he will be allowed to leave after they secure a replacement.
The outlet states that the Lilywhites are now looking for a central midfielder and would sanction the 28-year-old’s exit if they can get a deal done.
The publication adds that they have heard ‘from a well-placed source’ that Tottenham have set an asking price of £20m for the Denmark international and would be open to a loan deal with an obligation to buy or a permanent sale.
Spurs Web Opinion
I do wonder if the change in Tottenham’s stance regarding Hojbjerg over the last week or so is down to Conor Gallagher becoming available. The Chelsea star is evidently a favourite of Postecogolou’s and the club will not want to miss out on the opportunity to sign the 23-year-old.
