Pierre-Emile Hojberg Tottenham

The Dane is set to join the North London club in a deal worth £15 million.

Tottenham Close to Completing Move for Pierre-Emile Hojberg

Personal Terms to be Agreed

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has been linked with a move to Tottenham since the end of the 2019/20 campaign, and it now looks likely that a deal will be done. Fabrizio Romano has reported that the only remaining part of the deal to be done is to agree on the personal terms between the player and the club.

Once they are agreed, the 24-year-old will complete his move to North London.

Previous Experience in Germany

Denmark international Hojbjerg began his career in Germany with Bayern Munich and their second team. From there, he enjoyed several loan spells in the Bundesliga. In 2015, he played 15 times for FC Augsburg, before going on to join Schalke on loan, where he played a further 20 times.

Since making the move over to England, he has featured in over 100 games for Southampton. 38 of those appearances came last season; however, he failed to register a single goal, meaning he could not match his tally of four goals in the 2018/19 season.

The midfielder is still only 24 years of age and has his prime years ahead of him.

Walker-Peters Set to Complete Permanent Southampton Move

Heading in the opposite direction is Kyle Walker-Peters. After spending the second half of the 2019/20 campaign on loan with the Saints, he now looks set to complete a permanent transfer to the club for around £12 million.

The former England Under-21 international only featured a handful of times for Tottenham before making the switch to play for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side on a short-term basis. He has clearly impressed club chiefs, who are now ready to turn that deal into a full-time one.
