Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is a leading summer transfer target for Tottenham Hotspur, according to a report.

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen to sign Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg during this summer's transfer window.

The 24-year-old was recently stripped of the Saints captaincy, having refused to sign a new contract at St Mary's.

The midfielder's existing deal with Ralph Hasenhuttl's side expires next summer, suggesting that he will be leaving the club ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

According to Voetbal International, Tottenham have a 'concrete' interest in the Denmark international, who has made 35 appearances for Southampton in all competitions this season.

The report, though, claims that Jose Mourinho's side could face competition from both Everton and Ajax for the former Bayern Munich youngster.

Spurs will be looking to make it back-to-back wins in the Premier League when they travel to struggling Bournemouth on Thursday night.
