Pierre-Emile Højbjerg has a ‘clear intention’ to leave Tottenham Hotspur after being restricted to limited game time under Ange Postecoglou, according to Corriere dello Sport.
The midfielder wants to join a club where he can enjoy more minutes and Juventus would be ‘more than a welcome solution’ for him. They are keen on signing him in January and efforts have already started taking place behind the scenes for a deal.
It’s said the intermediaries are working to find a possible solution and the Tottenham player’s agent is set to arrive in Turin today to find out Juve sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli’s intentions for his client.
The Denmark international has a deal until 2025 and the newspaper states Spurs want €30m to part ways with him.
This is a ‘problem’ for the Old Lady since Giuntoli’s idea is to take him on a loan deal, with a possibility of including an option/obligation to make the deal permanent. Tottenham, on the other hand, only want an obligation set at €30m, if it’s a loan deal.
The two clubs have a good relationship after negotiating the deal for Dejan Kulusevski, and this would also help to find an agreement for Højbjerg’s transfer.
The reports linking Højbjerg with a move from Tottenham would only increase if he were to continue being a substitute under Postecoglou.
