Juventus could ponder a move for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in as Paul Pogba’s replacement, but Tottenham’s asking price poses a problem.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport via Sport Witness, Juventus are not yet convinced by the idea of singing Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg but could start thinking about the Dane now. Tottenham are open to a full sale only, and their asking price might pose a problem for the Biuanconeri.

Trouble has found the Juventus camp once again, and this time, there are some clear decisions for the club to make in the coming period. Since Paul Pogba failed a doping test, his B-sample also tested positive for Testosterone.

With the Frenchman set to face a lengthy time out, as per multiple reports, Juventus might look to cancel his contract and set him free. With that, they will have the funds to sign a new midfielder, with several options already discussed in the background.

Arsenal’s Jorginho is a target for them, and the Italian might come on the cheap, considering his contract expires in the summer of 2024. They may have liked to sign his teammate Thomas Partey. The Gunners will not allow a departure for anything lower than their valuation of the Ghanaian.

Khephren Thuram is also a target, but there’s increasing pressure with the interest of Liverpool and Newcastle United. Many reports point towards the 22-year-old signing for one of the Premier League sides if he leaves OGC Nice.

The other option is Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, who was free to leave Tottenham during the summer. Atletico Madrid appeared to have taken the lead for the midfielder but could not agree favourable terms with Spurs. The 28-year-old Tottenham ace has found himself down the pecking order since the season began. Ange Postecoglou prefers the partnership of Pape Matar Sarr and Yves Bissouma in his midfield.

Juventus are not yet convinced the 28-year-old Tottenham ace is the right choice to replace Pogba. While they are thinking hard about the midfielder, they are also wary of Tottenham’s asking price of €30 million. The Bianconeri have maintained contact with Spurs for the Danish star, but initial talks centred around a loan deal in January.

Tottenham have reasons to demand a significant fee, considering they will lose Bissouma and Sarr to the AFCON in January. Hence, if Hojbjerg remains a Spurs player around, then he will have a big role to play in the team.

Juventus have not decided on making a concrete approach to sign him. The story insists his salary won’t become an issue for the Italian side. The only trouble is Tottenham’s asking price, which, if they reduce, the Bianconeri might make a concerted effort in January.

    He’d be a steal at £40m, let the old Lady have him.
