Tottenham Officially Recruit Captain Southampton: Okezone Ball

LONDON – Tottenham Hotspur landed their first new player in the summer transfer market 2020. He is Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg who was bought from Southampton at a cost of 16.6 million euros (approximately Rp.286 billion).

Tottenham immediately tied Hojbjerg with a long-term contract of five years. The player who can play as a central, defensive and attacking midfielder is likely to earn a place in Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham first team.

Mourinho has certainly examined Hojbjerg’s abilities before signing him from Southampton. The Portuguese passport tactician seems to have prepared a strategy with Hojbjerg as one of his pawns in the match.

Hojbjerg can play in three different positions as a midfielder. However, the Danish player played a more frequent role as a central midfielder at Southampton last season.
