Sources: Tottenham work on five new signings after sealing Hojbjerg deal
Tottenham are working on at least five more new signings after completing the capture of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton, Football Insider understands.
The Londoners announced Hojberg’s arrival yesterday for a fee of £15million rising to a potential £19m.
A Spurs source has told Football Insider the club have feelers out for other new recruits as Jose Mourinho looks to strengthen his side ahead of the new campaign.
The Portugese is trying to sign a right-back, a centre-back, an attacking midfielder, a striker who can operate anywhere across the forward line and a back-up goalkeeper.
Mourinho is pleased to have already secured his top priority, after landing long-time target Hojbjerg to fill the midfield anchorman.
Spurs need to sell before they can buy any major signings but the £12m exit of Kyle Walker-Peters is sound business for a player who barely figured for the first team and came through the academy.

The Londoners are also in talks to sell Serge Aurier, a player they hope can raise at least £20m.
Other notable permanent departures could include defenders Juan Foyth, Danny Rose and Cameron Carter-Vickers as well as long serving attacking midfielder Erik Lamela.
Speculation is rife that Tanguy Ndombele will also leave the London giants, including in a potential player exchange deal that could bring some top stars to Spurs.
But Tottenham sources have consistently denied that is the case as the club hierarchy are convinced their record signing from last year will eventually come good.
