Tottenham have agreed to pay £15m for Southampton and Denmark international midfielder Pierre-Emile Højbjerg.
The Guardian reports that Spurs have beaten off completion from Everton and Bayern Munich for the midfielder’s signature who fell out with the club after failing to renew his contract.
The player who has one year to run on his Southampton contract is said to be a big admirer of Portuguese boss José Mourinho; a move that is believed to have swayed his decision.
In order to get their player, Spurs are reported to have accepted a £12m bid from Southampton to sign Kyle Walker-Peters on a permanent deal after he spent the second half of last season on loan under Ralph Hasenhüttl.
Højbjerg is believed to be in to replace midfielder Tanguy Ndombele who is attracting interest from Inter Milan; the midfielder having struggled to cement a place under Mourinho.
Pierre-Emile Højbjerg to Tottenham is now one step away to become a done deal. Personal terms agreed and last details between clubs then it’ll be completed. €17M to Southampton.— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) August 4, 2020
