Tottenham are set to open talks with midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg over a new deal after the Danish international’s impressive start to the season.
The 27-year-old’s current deal expires in the summer of 2025 but is set to add more years through an extension which will also see the midfield star receive a pay rise and move into the London club’s second bracket of earners, reports Football Insider.
Hojbjerg’s current deal, signed when he joined from Southampton for £15m in the summer of 2020, is said to be worth around £5million-a-year, or £95,000-a-week, states the report.
The Dane has made an impressive start to the current campaign and is a player Tottenham manager Antonio Conte regards as instrumental to his team.
