Over the past several weeks, numerous media publications have backed Juventus’ plan to buy Hojbjerg in January; just a few days ago, LondonWorld even claimed that the Old Lady is already putting together a proposal for the midfielder.
According to the most recent source to report on the situation, Gazzetta, Juventus dispatched a scout to watch the Tottenham player in action during Denmark’s 3-1 triumph on Saturday.
They wanted to witness the midfielder for the full 90 minutes, as evidenced by the fact that they went to Parken rather than the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Scouts for Juventus were impressed by Hojbjerg.
The Serie A heavyweights were reportedly impressed by what they saw and are ‘fascinated’ by Hojbjerg’s profile due to his expertise and adaptability.
But according to Gazzetta, Juventus is also keeping an eye on Lazar Samardzic of Udinese, Habib Diarra of Strasbourg, Youssouf Fofana of Monaco, and Manu Kone of Borussia Moenchengladbach. The Spurs star is not the only player they are keeping an eye on.
Hojbjerg is valued at £26 million, and the article concludes that Tottenham is not willing to loan him out in January.
Hojbjerg will want to leave because he will only have 18 months left on his contract and Tottenham will be happy to let him go in order to give him regular playing time. Spurs will be hoping that a bidding war develops between teams like Juventus and Atletico Madrid in order to up the midfielder’s price to £30 million in January.
In any case, Hojbjerg would be sold for a fair price if he wanted to leave Tottenham.
