Tottenham’s possible cash injection from transfer window to fund Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg deal
An important transfer window lies ahead for Jose Mourinho.
A mixed run of form that has comprised two wins, one draw and one defeat since the reason restarted means that there is uncertainty over where Tottenham Hotspur will finish this season.
Whether they qualify for the Champions League, Europa League or neither, they will still be linked with transfers – and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg presents an interesting conundrum.
Recent reports from The Telegraph outline that Spurs will need to sell players in order to finance a move for the Southampton man, who has been valued at around £35-40million.
Despite a high valuation from the Saints, there are a number of ways that Mourinho could look to finance a deal. One method, perhaps the most high-risk option, would be to test Southampton’s bottle with a deal worth far less than what they will be likely to quote.
Hojbjerg has already voiced his desire to play at a higher standard and just one year left on his current contract means that the club could be forced to either sell him now or risk losing him as a free agent next summer.
Alternatively, Spurs may look to sell some unwanted players in the squad in order to get the funds together for the Denmark international.
