Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur this summer and he has now seemingly dropped a huge hint on social media.
Hojbjerg’s official Twitter account has liked a tweet from SPORT1 journalist Florian Plettenberg suggesting that Spurs is the club he wants to join in the summer.
Even if the ‘like’ is subsequently removed, @Daily_Hotspur quickly took a screenshot of the evidence, thus preserving its public nature.
Hojbjerg has informed Southampton that he will not sign a new deal at St Mary’s, which has seen him stripped of the captain’s armband by Ralph Hasenhuttl. He has been relegated to the bench in recent weeks, although he did play the full 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw with Brighton at right-back.
Spurs were first linked with the former Saints skipper back in January, as Jose Mourinho has identified the Dane as the signing he needs to rebuild the midfield.
The ex-Bayern Munich ace has played 33 games in the Premier League this season, supplying one assist, taking 1.4 shots, winning 2.4 tackles and completing 1.5 clearances per game on average (via WhoScored).
He has made more than 100 appearances for Southampton in all competitions but seems destined to depart from St Mary’s in the summer transfer window.
Recent reports had suggested that he favours a move to Spurs instead of Everton, and his social media activity all but confirms these claims.
However, supporters should not jump the gun, as a deal is far from done at this point in time. The Guardian reported that the Saints have accepted a £25m bid from the Toffees, although talks are still ongoing with Tottenham.
If Hojbjerg arrives in north London, Spurs could be set for a changing of the guard, as it is highly likely that Kyle Walker-Peters will head in the opposite direction, while Harry Winks could be forced to make way. This may seem unfair on the former Mauricio Pochettino favourite, as he has formed a crucial partnership with Giovani Lo Celso in recent weeks.
