Since Ange Postecoglou joined Tottenham Hotspur in the summer, Pierre-Emile Hjbjerg has been given a smaller role.
The 28-year-old, who has played in every league game the past three seasons, is currently limited to 80 minutes of action in six games this year. According to Calciomercato, the midfielder “feels betrayed” by the team he “loves so much” and is “very disappointed” with his current predicament at Tottenham. As a result, the athlete is seeking a new challenge, which may be the cause of his recent breakup with his agent.
Atlético Madrid looked at the Denmark international in the last window and continue to have him on their agenda for January.
Diego Simeone is an admirer of the Tottenham man and the outlet states the La Liga side are planning a new assault in the winter market.
Atlético must be wary of the Old Lady as both their sporting director, Cristiano Giuntoli, and their manager, Massimiliano Allegri, like the Dane ‘a lot’.
According to Calciomercato, Tottenham values the player at €40 million and isn’t interested in a loan agreement, which is currently the Serie A team’s only viable alternative. The most recent communication between Juve and Hjbjerg’s new agency shows that Giuntoli is’ready to seize’ an opportunity, so long as there is a chance to close the deal.
