Juventus received a boost in their pursuit of Tottenham midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg after he signed with an Italian agent.

The midfielder has long been on the radar of several Serie A sides, but above all the Bianconeri, as Napoli and Roma have turned their focus to other targets.

His contract with Tottenham is due to expire in June 2025 and that makes a summer exit all the more likely.

He is also pursuing more regular first team football in the build-up to Denmark’s participation in the EURO 2024 tournament.

The 28-year-old is seemingly leaning towards Serie A for his next destination after signing for USG Italy as his new agency, represented specifically by Luca Puccinelli.

Juventus need a replacement for Paul Pogba, who was handed a four-year ban for breaking doping regulations.

The asking price Tottenham had placed on Hojbjerg in January was circa €24m, but down to the last year of his contract, that will drop significantly.
