the Battle of Pierre-Emile Højbjergs future started to really intensify.
It has long been clear that the Danish midfielder does not want to extend his contract with Southampton before it expires in a year, which has resulted in both startplads and anførerbind.
The price is Wigan are undoubtedly willing to pay, if the premium is a future on a major address.
the Question is just where he needs to go.
Everton and Tottenham are the clear favourites for the dane's signature, and now have Everton, according to the Ekstra information opened budkrigen with a response in the range of 20-25 million. pound (164-206 million. Danish kroner, ed.).
the Question is, however, about the amount impresses management in Southampton, which has slammed a price tag on the whole 35 million. pounds (288 million. kroner, ed.) on the now former captain.
It speaks not in Evertons favour, to Wigan, according to Ekstra English pressekilder supposedly prefer a move to Tottenham, who have long cast long glances after the midfielder.
Ekstra Bladet learns to Wigan so should already have been past tottenham's training facility and greet José Mourinho and co., but it will look like the London club's chairman, Daniel Levy, really bad to pay full price for a player who only has a year left on the contract.
Why have the Spurs in the hope that Southampton will accept højrebacken Kyle Walker-Peters as part of a possible trade. He is currently on loan from Tottenham for the club from the English south coast, but although he has gotten plenty of playing time, have Southampton so far refused to let him or any other Tottenham players included in a trade.
The Saints hope to continue to get a large part of the estimated selling price for him, and has therefore offered him to several other clubs, among other Manchester City, who earlier in the week was reported in the race for Pierre-Emile Højbjergs signature.
