Tottenham willing to sacrifice ‘important’ star to ruin Arsenal and Liverpool’s plans

Tottenham are preparing to sanction a departure in January if it means signing Ange Postecoglou’s top target.

Tottenham boss Ange Postecoglou is reportedly willing to part ways with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in order to secure one of his top targets in the January transfer window. Reports suggest the north London club are prepared to listen to offers for the central midfielder in January as Postecoglou looks to continue his pursuit of Champions League football and potentially a title challenge in the second half of the season.

Hojbjerg was a key member of the squad last season under Antonio Conte before the Italian was sacked. Even then, interim boss Ryan Mason leaned on the Dane to lead the side through a tumultuous period after Conte’s departure.

The 28-year-old only missed five games since joining the club in 2020 in a £3million deal which included Kyle Walker-Peters joining Southampton in part-exchange. But he could be set to leave the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the coming months.

According to talkSPORT, Postecoglou ‘would be willing to part ways’ with Hojbjerg if it means funding a deal to sign his top target in January.

And that could force Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United to move quickly as they compete with Spurs in the transfer market.
