Atletico Madrid midfielder target interested in joining club; €18 million transfer cost will be negotiated

Atletico Madrid appear to be looking for another deeper midfielder this summer, and several have been connected, but Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg appears to be the most probable at the time of writing.

It is unclear whether the Danish behemoth is in new Tottenham Hotspur boss Ange Postecoglou‘s plans, but Spurs are said to be open to a trade at the appropriate price.

MD cites English sources indicating that the player is receptive to the move, implying that the only compromise to be reached is the money.

There appears to be a substantial difference between what Atletico Madrid is ready to pay for Hojbjerg and what Tottenham wants for him. According to Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet, the English side wants €40 million, but Atletico only wants €22 million. Bayern Munich has also inquired about one of their former players, but despite this gap, Atletico are now the best-placed.

Similar rumblings have surrounded Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat, with Los Colchoneros interested in the Moroccan, albeit for around €10 million less than his €30 million asking price. With hindsight, it’s worth thinking whether Atletico has multiple options they like and are waiting to see which is the most cost-effective move to make.
