Tottenham Outcast Hojbjerg Appoints Italian Agent Amid Serie A Interest


Amid ongoing speculation linking Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg with a move to Serie A, the Tottenham midfielder has taken a significant step in potentially securing a transfer to Italy. Reports indicate that Hojbjerg has appointed Luca Puccinelli from the agency USG Italy as his new representative, signaling a possible shift in his career path, as reported by Calciomercato.

The Danish midfielder has been on the radar of Serie A clubs in the past two transfer windows, with both Juventus and Napoli expressing interest in acquiring his services. While a move failed to materialize previously, the upcoming summer transfer window could present better opportunities for a transfer to Italy.

Hojbjerg had reportedly expressed his desire to switch clubs during the January transfer window. However, Tottenham opted to retain him due to midfield issues related to the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON). Additionally, despite his limited playing time under coach Ange Postecoglou, the valuation placed on him by Tottenham has remained robust.

Tottenham set a price tag of €35 million for the midfielder, with Juventus showing the most interest in securing his signature. Although Massimiliano Allegri was keen on bringing him to Turin, negotiations between the two clubs failed to reach a resolution due to differences in valuation and transfer terms.

Napoli remains in the hunt for Hojbjerg, keeping a close eye on his situation. With his contract set to expire in 2025 and no signs of an extension on the horizon, the likelihood of his departure from Tottenham increases. Despite making 28 appearances this season, the Danish international has started in just six Premier League games, indicating a reduced role within the squad.
