Tottenham Midfielder Roars Back in Juventus Search

Considering the issues and doubts concerning other names, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is back to being a primary target for Juventus. He’s unhappy with his playing time at Tottenham. The Bianconeri aim to get him on an initial loan, TuttoSport informs (via Notizie).

The deal could envisage a €30M obligation to buy. The Old Lady would pay it by sacrificing Samuel Iling-Junior or Matias Soulé. The Spurs are among the sides eyeing the English talent, but his price tag is substantial despite his lack of minutes.

The candidacy of Hojbjerg has re-gained momentum because Juventus were rebuffed for Rodrigo De Paul. Plus, Massimiliano Allegri doesn’t consider Kalvin Phillips the right addition. He’d be more expensive too.

The Dane has logged 17 appearances so far but has started just 3 times in the Premier League. On the other hand, Tottenham will lose a pair of pieces due to AFCON, which might impede his departure or force them to buy first. Napoli are in the market for a midfielder and are also keen.

Our Take on Juventus and Hojbjerg

He’s only a little more creative than Phillips. The main difference between the two is that the Spurs player is less pricey, so the Bianconeri would have an actual shot at retaining him and not just have him for six months. Since it’s uncertain that Adrien Rabiot will stay, they should definitely go in that direction. However, their midfield needs some pizzazz, as they already have a few muscular guys. He’s a better fit for Napoli.
