Multiple journalists have now claimed that Tottenham re inching towards a conclusion in the transfer of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton.
Earlier this week, Sky Sports reported that Tottenham and Southampton had agreed on a fee of £15m for the central midfielder.
However, Radio Solent journalist Adam Blackmore then threw cold water on the claims that a deal was done, revealing that Spurs were still falling short of Southampton’s valuation.
As recently as today, The Sun weighed in on the debate and reported that a £20m fee plus add-ons had been agreed between the two clubs and the contract would likely be signed this weekend.
Both journalists claimed that the difference between the Hojbjerg and Walker-Peters price tags remains £3m, meaning that Spurs would effectively be paying £3m plus the academy man for Hojbjerg.
Both Hojbjerg and Walker-Peters deals now edging towards the conclusion Spurs and Saints want and should be completed in the coming days. As far as I understand it, the difference between the fee for the Saints man and KWP remains £3m. Mourinho wanted Hojbjerg in for pre-season.

#thfc Understand bids accepted by Spurs & Saints for Hojbjerg and Walker-Peters. Some conflicting information on final fees but understand there’s a £3m difference. So Spurs are effectively paying £3m plus KWP for PEH.
