The Spurs of Jose Mourinho would have liked to sign Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg of Southampton of Ralph Hasenhuttl.

Southampton captain Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg called Tottenham Hotspur a “big club” amid speculation linking him to a move to the giants of north London, speaking to Viaplay and BT.

While the Saints have expressed their desire to get rid of this “sales club” label, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team may have no other choice but to consider offers for the former starlet of the Bayern Munich when the transfer window opens.

Hojbjerg is out of contract in 2021 after all, which means this summer may be the last chance for Southampton to demand the best price for its influential skipper.

The Mirror (March 6, page 62) reported that Tottenham is fighting Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City to sign the £ 13m dynamo, which recently hired a new agent in the form of Pini Zahavi.

Zahavi, interestingly enough, is a man famous for his ability to make big budget moves.

When asked if he would be tempted to follow in the footsteps of fellow Christian Eriksen by joining Tottenham, Hojbjerg made a rather intriguing response.

“It’s a great club and I also think Christian Eriksen has positive memories of that,” said Hojbjerg, in quotes translated by BT. “It would be a lie to say that I have not read (the reports).

“The most important thing is that I focus on Southampton and when the season starts again, I can continue where I left off.”

It is well documented that Tottenham misses the type of deep positional midfielder that Mourinho deems necessary.

But while Hojbjerg is not lacking in energy, technical ability or leadership, it remains to be seen whether he could play the role of “Nemanja Matic” for the Spurs.

Hojbjerg is perhaps better suited to a more box-to-box position.
