This Spurs midfielder who has fallen out-of-favour under new manager Ange Postecoglou is still wanted by two of Europe’s biggest superclubs. 

Spurs are one of only two clubs to be unbeaten in the Premier League this season and for that record, they are top of the Premier League table during the current international break. Facing some tough matches this season, new manager ange Postecoglou has overcome adversity and has the club playing the way they’ve wanted for ages.

What’s impressive, is that this was meant to be a season of transition for Spurs. Losing their club captain and Premier League legend Harry Kane, while also being the first season for a new manager with no experience in the league. For them to even be in the top four is impressive enough.

But it’s not sunshine and rainbows for everybody at the club. Indeed, there’s one player who could seriously benefit from some more game time and that’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. The Danish midfielder who was one of Spurs’ best and most consistent players last season, is currently surplus to requirements as he’s been replaced in the starting eleven by Yves Bissouma.

According to a report from Gazzetta dello Sport (via 90min), Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is wanted by Atletico Madrid and Juventus, so it could be a transfer tussle between the two clubs to sign him from Spurs in January.

The Top Flight recently claimed that Hojbjerg had given Ange Postecoglou his final ultimatum – Essentially, he said play me or I will leave. It remains to be seen whether Ange has taken his notice on board as Tottenham will face Fulham on Monday.

Meanwhile, Tottenham will rival Arsenal for their Thomas Partey replacement.

Do you think Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg will leave Spurs in the January transfer window?
