According to The Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur are on the brink of reaching an agreement with Southampton for the transfer of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, as well as the sale of Kyle Walker-Peters.
Hojbjerg has been heavily linked with a move to Tottenham over the past few weeks with multiple reports suggesting that the Lilywhites were in talks with Southampton (Corriere dello Sport via Sport Witness).
Meanwhile, Kyle Walker-Peters enjoyed a terrific loan spell on the South Coast, with his performances since the restart leaving some Saints fans mightily impressed.
It has been reported that Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side are keen on completing a permanent deal for the right-back this summer (The Sun), with some reports suggesting that Tottenham could use the defender to bring down the asking price for Hojbjerg (Sky Sports).
It appears that Daniel Levy is close to getting his wish as The Telegraph report that there has been considerable progress in the talks between the two clubs this week.
The report asserts that Hojbjerg is set to complete a £15 million move to Spurs while Southampton will pay £12 million to sign Walker-Peters in a separate deal.

If the reported fees are accurate, then there is no question that we have got the better deal. In hindsight, the decision to loan Kyle Walker-Peters out to Southampton in January seems to have been a well thought out one. If we did not have that leverage over Southampton, I suspect they would have likely sold Hojbjerg to the highest bidder.
