After Paul Pogba’s positive drug test, Juventus will return to the transfer market, and Tottenham midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is being mentioned.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, if the Frenchman’s contract in Turin is cancelled as predicted, ‘he would be the one’ to replace him
Pogba faces a lengthy suspension after a re-analysis of his failed test today confirmed the first findings.
It is now’very likely’ that his contract would be terminated by Juventus, who will then look for a successor on the market.
Tottenham midfielder Hojbjerg has been linked with a transfer in recent weeks, and TMW believe ‘he would be the one’ to complete their team.
This is despite the fact that his name is just ‘lukewarm’ at the moment within the club, with sources stressing today that he is not a target.
According to TMW, the Denmark international would be excellent since he is experienced, used to being under pressure, and would not cost much considering that he is not a starter at Tottenham under Ange Postecoglou.
These are all elements that, in their opinion, should make him the ideal target, albeit that opinion does not appear to be shared by Juventus just yet.
Indeed, it appears that the Italian media is more persuaded than the club and is attempting to influence the Bianconeri’s thinking.
