This is the latest TOTTENHAM News with Spurs making clear intentions over 26yr old player who has been involved in transfer talks.
According to Football l0ndon, Tottenham will not sell Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg this summer. Hojbjerg had another solid season, missing only two Premier League games as Spurs qualified for the Champions League for the first time (Transfermarkt).
In the second half of the season, the Denmark international emerged as a vital figure for Antonio Conte, forming a powerful midfield relationship with January arrival Rodrigo Bentancur.
Next year, he will face a new level of competition in the shape of Yves Bissouma, who joined from Brighton in a deal for up to £35 million with add-ons (Sky Sports).

While Tottenham’s acquisition of the Mali international will strengthen Conte’s options in the center of the pitch, Hojbjerg’s position in North London is unlikely to be jeopardized.
Spurs are not planning to sell the 26-year-old this summer, according to reports in London, as they prepare for their first full season under Conte.
Hojbjerg joined Spurs from Southampton in 2020 and quickly established himself as a regular midfielder under then-manager Jose Mourinho.
Since his arrival, he has been a near-constant in the side, and he just passed the 100-appearance mark for the club (Transfermarkt).
In the second part of last season, Hojbjerg emerged as a solid option, and he was one of the leaders on the pitch as Spurs finished fourth in the Premier League and qualified for the Champions League.
Spurs are unlikely to move Hojbjerg on the strength of his late-season performances unless they receive a very attractive amount. Many fans would be dissatisfied as well.
