Tottenham Hotspur have no plans to sell midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg this summer, reports reliable journalist Alasdair Gold.
The Lowdown: Bissouma’s arrival
Fabio Paratici’s latest signing, Yves Bissouma, joined Spurs last week after the Lilywhites chief agreed a £25m fee with Brighton, with add-ons potentially raising the overall cost to £35m.
Ranking in the 91st percentile for pass completion and 87th percentile for tackles when compared with positional peers across Europe, it’s easy to see how Bissouma will slot straight into the first XI at N17 (via FB Ref).
And his arrival at Hotspur Way led to rumours of a potential departure for Hojbjerg.
The Latest: Gold’s news
Gold has now shared the latest news on Hojbjerg’s future with Spurs.
Taking to Twitter, the journalist claimed quite simply: “Spurs have no plans to sell Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg this summer.”
The Verdict: Keep him…
These exit rumours appeared after the 26-year-old’s standout season, with the Denmark international only second to Harry Kane in terms of playing time at Spurs, with 3,986 minutes under his belt.
With the Lilywhites’ busy schedule next year including Champions League action, Antonio Conte will need strong depth in each position to compete in all competitions.
Therefore, it is imperative that the North London club keep hold of Hojbjerg ahead of next season, with the Dane having previously been described as ‘phenomenal’ by former boss Jose Mourinho.
