Juventus Face Big Obstacles in Pursuit of Tottenham Ace

Juventus continue to chase after Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg while they wait for the first ruling on Paul Pogba. The counter-analysis will happen on Thursday. If the sample was positive again, a lengthy and arduous legal process would start, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.

The Bianconeri will have the option to terminate his contract if he’s suspended for any period of time. Director Cristiano Giuntoli weighed in during a recent interview.

“We’ll wait for the outcome, then we’ll decide along with his representatives.”

Partying ways with Pogba would allow Juventus to save €30M throughout the duration of his contract, which the brass could quickly utilize to sign Hojbjerg. While he’s unhappy with his playing time, the Old Lady would have to clear significant roadblocks to add him. There have already been some contacts between the parties and the player is keen on the destination.

For instance, the Spurs’ current starting duo, Yves Bissouma and Pape Sarr will participate in AFCON in January. The hierarchy could be reluctant to part ways with a midfielder. Moreover, Atletico Madrid are still on the prowl after coming up empty-handed in the summer.

In addition, Tottenham want no less than €30M to have the funds for replacement and are opposed to an initial loan, which would instead help Juventus in their Hojbjerg chase.
