Tottenham midfielder Pierre Emile-Hojbjerg does not get enough credit for his vision and creativity, according to Paul Robinson.
The former Spurs and England number one, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed the “amazing” 25-year-old is a contender to be the Premier League’s signing of the season.
Hojbjerg has been ever-present for Jose Mourinho’s side in the league this term, with his 22 appearances from holding-midfield yielding one goal and three assists.
One of those assists came in Sunday’s 2-0 home victory over West Brom – a pinpoint pass through to set up Harry Kane for the opener.
Robinson believes the £15million summer signing from Southampton has been Spurs’ best player in the 2020/21 campaign.
“A great ball in for Kane, his vision was amazing,” he told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs.
“He has got that in his locker as well and he perhaps does not always get credit for it. Yes, he has the defensive side of his game and a great ability to keep hold of the ball but he can also be forward thinking. He can create and get assists.
“Hojbjerg is looking like the all-round player. He has been one of the signings of the season, certainly Spurs’ signing of the season. I would say he has been their best player this year.
“If you notice, even when Jose Mourinho rotates his side, Hojbjerg remains in the starting eleven.”
