The Daily Echo claim that Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has turned down three different offers as he has his heart set on a move to Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
The Daily Echo now claims that two clubs from the Premier League, as well as a Bundesliga side, have already made offers for the 24-year-old but he has had made it clear to Southampton that he wants to join the North Londoners.
This is said to have complicated matters for the Saints in the transfer market as they were planning on selling Hojbjerg to the highest bidder early on in the transfer window.
However, it is asserted that Tottenham are only willing to pay around £15m for the midfielder, which is £10m million short of Southampton’s valuation.

One would expect that Southampton would eventually lower their valuation and Walker-Peters could potentially be included as a part of the deal. However, I expect negotiations to drag on for a long time as Levy will look to get the best possible deal. Agreeing fees for two players with the Tottenham chairman will not be an easy ask for Southampton. Levy will know that the longer the situation drags on, the more it favours Spurs.
