Tottenham midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is a man in huge demand with both Juventus and Atletico Madrid interested.

Juventus are preparing a bid for Tottenham midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg who came close to joining Atletico Madrid in the summer.

Hojbjerg has found himself more on the bench this season than he would have anticipated with Senegal international Pape Matar Sarr at the centre of Ange Postecoglou's revolution, paired with the the exciting Yves Bissouma and the creative force James Maddison.

Tottenham signed the Danish midfielder three seasons ago from Southampton under Jose Mourinho for a reported fee of £15millkion with full-back Kyle Walker-Peters heading in the opposite direction.

Since then, he started 36 league games in the first season and played 35 games last season but is yet to get going this time around. Juventus are in desperate need of a midfielder in his profile with Paul Pogaba testing positive for a doping case while fellow midfielder Nicolo Fagioli is being investigated for betting issues.

Tottenham have been brilliant under new manager Ange Postecoglou who has found a way of introducing a brand of football that fans love and getting results that have them at to top of the league table.

They have also coped well with the loss of record scorer Harry Kane while ensuring new signings like James Maddison and until his injury Manor Solomon all being massive hits.

They have also mastered the art of turning draws into wins exemplified by their last minute wins against Sheffield United and Liverpool while showing strong character to win against Luton despite being a player down away from from home.

There will be more players likely to leave in the coming window and more to come in as the Spurs board look to balance the squad and generate healthy competition that allows manager Postecoglou to continue getting ultimate results.
