Tottenham will have no qualms about selling midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg this summer as long as they secure a massive profit, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.
The 25-year-old has been one of the few Spurs players who has enhanced his reputation during a difficult debut season at the club.
A recruitment source has told Football Insider that the Londoners have no problem selling Hojbjerg but value him at double the £15million paid to Southampton last summer.
This site revealed on 18th May that new Roma boss Jose Mourinho is planning to raid his former club for the Denmark international in the upcoming window.
It is said that the midfield anchorman is the only Spurs player the Portugese is looking to recruit.
Tottenham will need to sell to buy this summer after losing around £150million from a season without fans at their stadium.
Much will depend upon the outcome of the Harry Kane transfer saga, which is already shaping up to be the off-season’s biggest talking point.
Hojbjerg is one of the few Spurs players who could command a £25m-plus fee, and he certainly has one powerful admirer.
Mourinho hailed the central midfielder last December as “a phenomenal player” who possesses a “genius” to his game, remarking “congratulations Mr Levy” for signing him from Southampton.
Hojbjerg has remarkably played every single minute of Spurs’ Premier League campaign, a record he has maintained since Mourinho was sacked.
In total, he has accumulated 36 league starts among 51 appearances in all competitions this season.
His tally of 4,143 first-team minutes puts him among the highest outfield players in Europe this season.
