Tottenham Not Going to Help Juventus in Hojbjerg Deal

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has gained ground over other options to shore up the Juventus midfield, but the Italian giants would have to pony up the money to get him or at least commit to doing so in the summer. Tottenham are open to letting him go, but only in a permanent fashion and for a sizeable offer, Tuttomercatoweb informs.

The Dane would like to be a regular and is raring to depart. Coach Ange Postecoglou would sign off if he were replaced adequately. That might make it hard for his departure to come together in January because a pair of Spurs staples will play in AFCON.

Tottenham could eventually accept a loan with an obligation to buy, provided Juventus agree to shell out €30M. Instead, the Bianconeri seem keener on taking a flier on somebody for the next six months and then reexamining the situation down the line.

While Paul Pogba is probably lost for good, Nicolò Fagioli will finish serving his suspension in May. The Old Lady will have to spend big in the midfield if Adrien Rabiot doesn’t renew his contract.

Napoli are also keen on the Spurs outcast, but they will try to sign Lazar Samardzic first.

Our Take on Juventus and Hojbjerg

They have made do so far, but they have been playing with fire. They’ll be in big trouble if Rabiot, Manuel Locatelli, or Weston McKennie go down with a multi-week injury. It’ll be arduous to find somebody decent if those are their parameters.
