It is said that they will be stepping up their efforts to sign the Danish midfielder, having been unsuccessful with previous advances.
However, they will be facing competition from Leicester City in their pursuit of the 24-year-old’s signature.
Spurs may have conviction in their desire to bring Hojbjerg to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but fans are split on whether they want him, as suggested by the response to Ricky Sacks’ tweet.
There are some who would “happily take him”, while others have added that he is “totally the type of player we need” and that he would “complement players like Ndombele and Lo Celso”.
This comes in a season in which he has started 27 Premier League games, coming off the bench once, averaging 2.4 tackles, 1.5 interceptions and 1.7 clearances, while also making 1 key pass and 1.3 dribbles per game.
Great, he’s what we need, some aggression

I would happily take him

He’s a quality DM, would compliment players like Ndombele and Lo Celso in a midfield three by doing the defensive works whilst they do all the creative work. I can see this transfer happening and I can see our midfield shining with him

Totally the type of player we need and ticks a lot of boxes. Would be a good signing. No doubt some fans will turn their nose up as he isn’t a glamour signing.

However, there are various Spurs fans who have been left severely underwhelmed by this transfer link, as a player from Southampton is not the most glamorous of signings to make.
One fan has said “this club stinks” after seeing the connection, while another has claimed that they would rather see Wilmar Barrios join.
If the Denmark international does sign for Spurs, he may have some work to do in order to get some of the fans on his side.
Main target ? This club stinks https://t.co/bkVDQHuVWv

No, not good enough for spurs. Should be going for Wilmar barrios DMF. He is a beast. Or maybe just stop buying midfielders and actually concentrate on players we need in areas like defenders, gk and strikers
