Tottenham could sell four players for Hojbjerg including Aurier

Tottenham Hotpsur could offload as much as four players in order to fund the transfer of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton.


The Southampton captain is keen to move to a bigger club, and whilst Spurs are willing to pay £20 million, the Saints want £35 million.


Tottenham are willing to sell Kyle Walker-Peters, Eric Dier, Serge Aurier, and Danny Rose in order to raise funds for the deal.


Walker-Peters has already spent some time on loan at Southampton, Rose is currently on loan at Newcastle United after joining them in January, Dier has barely started any games, and Aurier has been inconsistent ever since joining the club back in 2017.


All of the players seem to be fringe players, apart from Aurier who has started plenty of games due to the lack of depth in the squad at full-back.


The other three have all been destined to leave the club, with them basically being put aside from any sort of first-team football at the club.


Due to the coronavirus pandemic, several clubs have had to reduce their transfer budget in order to keep several of their employees employed, as well as pay the players and staff a significant amount despite not generating any funds through match tickets.


Whilst this decision may seem drastic, but for a club that is so reliant on midfielders, Hojbjerg would add a certain level of steadiness and Premier League experience to it.
