Tottenham is nearing completion on the deal of a ‘phenomenal’ 65-cap player.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is expected to leave the club this summer, with the club close to finalizing a deal.

Tottenham would have like for him to stay, but Hojbjerg is allegedly interested in joining Atletico Madrid during the summer transfer window.

Both the player and the La Liga club appear to have gotten their desire. Tottenham are attempting to finalize the deal of Hojbjerg to Atletico Madrid, according to 90min.

Spurs reportedly valued the player at £40 million, but Atletico will not pay more than £30 million. Despite this, it appears that the Spanish club will get their wish because no other bidders have entered the race, causing Spurs to lower their value.

Hojbjerg is expected to join Atletico Madrid.
This will undoubtedly be a significant loss for the Spurs this summer. Hojbjerg was a prominent player in the Premier League last season, appearing in 35 games.

The 65-cap Denmark international can be “phenomenal” on his day and has been instrumental in bolstering the club’s defense when required.

Spurs will now have to recruit a new center midfielder to replace him. They can find some nice possibilities in transfer window if they can get about £30 million for him.

The 27-year-old will be missed, but if he does decide to depart, this summer seems like the ideal moment.

Ange Postecoglou, the club’s new manager, is attempting to rebuild the team, and with several key additions already in place, there is little question that they will find a suitable successor for Hojbjerg.

The club is having a busy summer. They need to avoid having players who aren’t devoted if they want to reclaim their place towards the top.
