According to reports, Tottenham have agreed a fee with Southampton over the sale of midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

After what seems to be ages of negotiations, Spurs might have seen a breakthrough in their chase for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

The Danish international is high on Mourinho’s wish-list as part of his plans to bolster Tottenham’s midfield options.

Hojbjerg has only one year left on his current contract hence Southampton have no problem selling him now than losing him for free next summer.

Spurs were initially willing to pay around £15m for the 25-year-old with the Saints holding out for at least £10m more.

The BBC now reports that both sides have agreed on a fee believed to be around £25m.

The same reports say Saints and Spurs have also come to an agreement over the sale of Kyle Walker-Peters.

The defender spent the second half of last season on loan with Saints and is believed to be heading back to the club in a permanent deal worth around £12m.

Since joining Southampton from Schalke in 2016, Hojberg has featured 134 times for the club, scoring five goals in that span.
