The Daily Mirror claim that Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton will announce an agreement on the transfers of Pierre-Emile and Hojbjerg and Kyle Walker-Peters in opposition directions once the former completes his medical with Spurs.
Reports over the last few days have indicated that Spurs have come to an agreement on Hojbjerg’s fee, as well as his personal terms (Football Insider).
The Mirror now claim that Kyle Walker-Peters has also agreed on personal terms with the Saints over a five-year deal. The right-back will not need to undergo a medical, having undergone one before his loan move to the South Coast in January.
The two clubs are now said to be waiting on the Denmark international to complete his medical in North London.
The report asserts that the sell-on clause for both players was the last stumbling block in negotiations but an agreement on that was reached on Thursday.
They claim that Spurs will pay a fee of £15million rising to £19m for Hojbjerg while Southampton will pay £12m plus add-ons for Walker-Peters.

Paying just £3m on top of Walker-Peters, who was seemingly not wanted by Mourinho, to sign an experienced midfielder who the Spurs boss reportedly likes, is brilliant business once again by Levy. It is a positive sign that we seem to have got the business done early. Hopefully, we can complete another signing or two before the players begin pre-season in two weeks.
