Newcastle 'target £30m transfer move for Tottenham star Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg' as part of summer spree

April 26, 2022

NEWCASTLE are interested in making a £30million move for Tottenham midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, according to reports.

The Dane, 26, has been a regular for the North Londoners since joining from Southampton for £15m back in 2020.

But for the right price, Spurs could let him leave as they reshuffle their squad.

According to the Mirror, Hojbjerg is 'high' on Toon boss Eddie Howe's list of targets.

They add that Howe will be handed plenty of money to spend this summer by Newcastle's new Saudi owners – with Hojbjerg a real possibility.

The Magpies may face competition from Roma, however, with Jose Mourinho having already tried to sign his former player last summer.

Hojbjerg has been a regular for Spurs this season, starting 31 of their 33 Premier League games to date.

But the Lilywhites are targeting a new midfielder this summer, having already added Rodrigo Bentancur in January.

The North Londoners also handed academy midfielder Oliver Skipp a new five-year contract.

In addition to a new midfielder, Spurs would also like to sign a centre-back, two new wing-backs and a striker.

Hojbjerg was recently positive about life at Tottenham under Antonio Conte.

He said: "Antonio is a special coach, with a special way of doing things, with a very high level of performing.

"There is always a time of adaptation, a time of understanding the sports side and also the personal side, and everything is coming together well.

"It’s important now to go with the flow and see how far we can take it, because the team is evolving very positively.

"That creates a platform where we can perform at a really very high level.

"We’re climbing the ladder, so it’s difficult to stop and look back down, we have to keep going and stay focused on the next challenge ahead.

"That’s how I think to work the best, not to draw too many conclusions, try to maintain a high level of focus and performance, be consistent in your behaviour and to enjoy the process, because eventually this is what makes you better."
