Fenerbahce Eye Tottenham Midfielder

Fenerbahce are reportedly chasing a reunion between their new manager Jose Mourinho and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

The 28-year-old Dane is rumored to be seeking a permanent exit from North London, and a move to Turkey could be on the cards.

According to Turkish outlet Sabah, Fenerbahce believe Mourinho’s presence is a significant advantage. The Portuguese coach managed Hojbjerg at Tottenham, and his influence could be key in persuading the midfielder to join the Istanbul club.

Struggling for consistent playing time at Spurs, a move could benefit both parties. Hojbjerg offers versatility in midfield.

Fenerbahce see Hojbjerg as a crucial addition to their midfield, bolstering their experience and defensive solidity. His ability to play as both a deep-lying playmaker and a defensive midfielder offers tactical flexibility for Mourinho.

While the initial bid from Fenerbahce is believed to be below Tottenham’s valuation, talks are reportedly ongoing. The prospect of reuniting with Mourinho, who managed Hojbjerg at Tottenham, could be a significant factor in the midfielder’s decision-making.
