Danish news outlet Ekstra Bladet (as relayed by Sport Witness) claim that Spurs are ‘certain’ to make an offer for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg but the Lilywhites may have to pay over the odds in order to secure his services.

The Denmark international has been heavily linked with a move to Spurs (Football Insider) and has previously hinted that he is open to joining the North London giants this summer (Football.London).

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl confirmed this week that the 24-year-old has been stripped of the captaincy after he refused to extend his contract at St Mary’s (The Independent).

The Evening Standard claimed last week that the Saints are demanding around £35m to part ways with the former Bayern Munich man this summer.

Ekstra Bladet also report the same valuation and claimed that Southampton are unlikely to let Hojbjerg leave unless their valuation is met.

Everton are also said to be determined to land Hojbjerg when the transfer market opens.

The rumoured Hojbjerg to Spurs deal makes sense for all three parties as the midfielder seems to be intent on making a step up and Tottenham are desperate for a player with his attributes.

Additionally, it has become increasingly clear that Southampton have little choice but to sell him this summer due to his contract situation. I believe they will eventually be forced to accept around half of their rumoured £35m asking price.
