Tottenham Hotspur's midfield maestro Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg seems to be on the verge of a departure from the North London club this summer.

According to insider Paul O’Keefe, Spurs have put a £25m price tag on the Danish midfielder as he enters the final year of his contract.

Hojbjerg's imminent departure has been a subject of speculation for some time now, with reports indicating that his four-year stint with the club is set to conclude in the upcoming transfer window. Several Serie A clubs, including Juventus, AC Milan, and Napoli, have been mentioned as potential suitors for the 28-year-old.

Adding to the list of interested parties, Atletico Madrid have emerged as contenders for Hojbjerg's signature, with manager Diego Simeone reportedly keen on bringing him to the Spanish capital. Atletico's interest dates back to last summer, and they are hopeful of striking a deal before the commencement of the 2024-25 season.

Despite Hojbjerg having just a year left on his current deal, Tottenham is standing firm on their valuation of £25m for the midfielder. The club anticipates significant interest from across Europe and is unwilling to compromise on their asking price.

Furthermore, Hojbjerg's potential value could see an increase if he puts in strong performances for Denmark at the upcoming European Championship. This factor adds another dimension to his transfer situation and could potentially influence negotiations.

A successful sale of Hojbjerg could provide Tottenham with the financial resources needed to strengthen their squad in other areas. One potential target is Atalanta's Ederson, whose acquisition could significantly bolster Spurs' midfield options.

The impending departure of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg marks the beginning of a new chapter for both the player and Tottenham Hotspur.
