Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has now rejected the chance to move to three other clubs, as he sets his heart on a move to Tottenham Hotspur. That is according to a report from the Daily Echo, who suggest the situation now has his current club Southampton stuck in their own transfer plans for the summer.
The report claims that Southampton want to sell the Dane as soon as possible so they can fund their own transfer plans.
However, Hojbjerg’s insistence on wanting to join Tottenham has the Saints struggling, as Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is sticking to his lower than anticipated valuation of the player.
Tottenham’s frugal chairman is not willing to go above his £15 million valuation for the player, with Southampton wanting closer to £25 million.
Both clubs, therefore, need to make up a £10 million difference of opinion if they are to get any deal done.
Southampton appear ready to sell Hojbjerg and it looks as though they have had the chance to do so at a better price than that Tottenham have put on the table.
But with Hojbjerg intent on heading to North London, Tottenham appear to have Southampton over a barrel and will be unlikely to up their transfer offer by any significant amount.
