Ancelotti is an admirer: Real Madrid ready to pay £58m for Tottenham midfielder

    Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has been linked with a move away from the London club, writes the BoyHotspur.

    According to Danish outlet BT, the 27-year-old Tottenham midfielder could be a replacement for Luka Modrić at Real Madrid.

    The Croatian international is on his last legs and the Spanish giants will need to bring in a replacement for him.

    BT believe that Los Blancos are considering the Danish international midfielder as a potential alternative. Apparently, they could shell out a fee of around £58 million.

    Hojbjerg has been an exceptional signing for Tottenham since his move from Southampton and he has established himself as a key player for Antonio Conte.

    It seems highly unlikely that Daniel Levy will sanction the 27-year-old’s departure anytime soon.

    The midfielder has recently been nominated for the player of the month award and he will be crucial to Tottenham’s quest for silverware.

    The Danish international is one of the first names on the team sheet and losing him would weaken Spurs severely.

    It remains to be seen whether Real Madrid are willing to come forward with a concrete offer for the Danish international in the coming months. They certainly have the resources to test Tottenham’s resolve.

    Furthermore, the opportunity to join a club like Real Madrid is a tempting proposition for most players and it will be interesting to see if Hojbjerg’s head is turned once the interest is formalised.

    With the likes of Harry Kane already being linked with a move away from the London club, the fans will be worried about whether Antonio Conte can keep his squad intact for the upcoming seasons.
