Tottenham Hotspur ‘open to Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg sale amid Atletico Madrid link’s

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly open to the idea of selling Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg this summer amid interest from Spanish club Atletico Madrid.

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly prepared to sell Atletico Madrid target Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg this summer.

Since joining Spurs from Southampton in the summer of 2020, Hojbjerg has gone on to make 145 appearances across all competitions.

The Denmark international featured regularly for the North London club last term, registering five goals and seven assists in 44 competitive appearances.

Hojbjerg featured in 35 Premier League matches, but he was not included in the squad for the final two fixtures against Brentford and Leeds United.

Despite having two years remaining on his contract, there has been a suggestion that Hojbjerg could be offloaded this summer.

Atletico have been linked with the 27-year-old, as they look to strengthen their midfield, with Geoffrey Kondogbia on the verge of joining Marseille.

According to The Athletic, Tottenham will allow the midfielder to depart the club if they receive a suitable offer.

Spurs have a number of alternative central midfield options in their squad in the form of Yves Bissouma, Rodrigo Bentancur, Oliver Skipp and Pape Matar Sarr.

While Spurs are open to a sale, there has been no formal contact between Spurs and Atletico over a potential transfer.

Having previously spent time at Bayern Munich, Augsburg, Schalke and Southampton, a move to Diego Simeone‘s side would give Hojbjerg the chance to test himself in a new league.

After finishing in eighth place and missing out on European football, Spurs are currently at the start of a rebuild under newly-appointed head coach Ange Postecoglou.

Tottenham have already bolstered their squad with the addition of James Maddison from Leicester City for a reported £40m fee.

They have also converted Dejan Kulusevski on a permanent deal, and signed goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario from Serie A side Empoli.
