Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly edging closer to securing a deal for Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly made progress in negotiations with Southampton for midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

With less than 12 months remaining on his contract, Hojbjerg has decided to request a move away from St Mary's during the summer transfer window.

While Everton have been linked with the Denmark international, it has been widely claimed that the 24-year-old would prefer a switch to Spurs.

According to Sky Sports News, the relevant parties are continuing to hold positive discussions regarding a deal.

Despite Spurs currently bidding significantly below Hojbjerg's £25m asking price, there remains the possibility of the Saints also signing Kyle Walker-Peters in part-exchange.

The report suggests that Southampton are prepared to consider their options before pressing ahead with a bid for the full-back, who has just concluded a loan spell on the South Coast.
