Juventus interested in Tottenham’s Pierre-Emile Højbjerg

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Pierre-Emile Højbjerg is attracting interest from Juventus, who could make a January move for the Dane.

There remains a certain amount of uncertainty about the future of Paul Pogba, whose fate is yet to be known after the doping scandal and Juve are already looking for replacements for the Frenchman.

Corriere della Sera state that signing a midfielder in January is a priority for Juve and Højbjerg is a target. The Dane was also a target in the summer and the Bianconeri had tried to execute a swap deal involving the Spurs man and Arthur, who later joined Fiorentina and is now thriving under Vincenzo Italiano.

In January, Juve could once again return for the 28-year-old, who hasn’t been a regular under Ange Postecoglou and was heavily linked with an exit in the summer.

Another name on Juve’s shortlist is that Nice midfielder Kephrem Thuram, who is the brother of Inter’s Marcus Thuram. The final decision about who the Old Lady move for will be on sporting director Cristiano Guintoli.
