According to reports, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s future may be affected by Tottenham Hotspur’s pursuit of a new midfield player during the January transfer window, according to Dharmesh Sheth of Sky Sports, who made this observation in an interview with GIVEMESPORT.
In his maiden season at the helm in north London, manager Ange Postecoglou has received strong backing in the transfer market. Under his supervision, Spurs are firmly in contention to qualify for European events once again and clinch a position in the Champions League for the forthcoming season.
While the Lilywhites have already made a lot of progress during the winter transfer window of 2024, talks are still in progress to bring in another midfield player before the market closes at the end of the month. Hotspur Way has seen the arrival of Timo Werner and Radu Dragusin, but the north London outfit’s work may not be done yet. Prioritizing outgoings has also helped Postecoglou and his hiring team construct their business before the window closes.
Hojbjerg is about to go out the door.
Regarding Hojbjerg’s possible January window departure, Florian Plettenberg disclosed to Sky Sports News that the midfielder intends to depart the team by the end of the current month. Postecoglou has made it challenging for the Danish international to play frequently, but Plettenberg insists that nothing has progressed. Daniel Levy won’t let him go without charging him a price; a loan with a buyout option has been discarded.
Tottenham is keeping an eye out to sign Riccardo Calafiori and Dharmesh Sheth in a “late” move.
Sheth has indicated that Tottenham is monitoring the midfield position at Tottenham Way. According to the Sky Sports reporter, it might depend on outgoings. If Hojbjerg is sufficiently sought after for a long-term contract, Spurs might think about making a move for the midfield player. Sheth said in an interview with GIVEMESPORT…
“I believe Tottenham would contemplate making a move for Hojbjerg if there is enough interest in him and if the transfer is permanent, given they can find a replacement. Because the Tottenham team already has a rather small roster. I am aware that they added Werner and Dragusin to the team, but it was essentially done merely out of a desire to keep those players on the field given their history of injuries to key players. Thus, I’m sure they’ll keep a watch on the midfield in particular, but I also think it might rely on Tottenham’s outgoings.”
Tottenham is vying for youthful talent.
Additionally, transfer guru Romano disclosed to GIVEMESPORT that Tottenham is now in communication with Club Brugge regarding teenage player Antonio Nusa. According to the Italian journalist, Spurs and the Belgian team have met twice in an attempt to strike a deal, and talks are still underway to get to a final agreement.
Even at the age of 18, Nusa has already established himself as a dominant force in the Jupiler Pro League, tallying three goals and dishing out two assists. Nusa is one of Europe’s best players, so it would be wise for the north London club to secure his services. However, expecting him to make an instant impact at Hotspur Way may be asking for too much.
