    Manchester City are considering making a move for Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, according to a report in the Daily Record

    There has been speculation regarding Hojbjerg’s future for some time. The Saints star has shown no signs of wanting to extend his stay at St. Mary’s beyond his current deal.

    The Danish international has also made it clear that he wants to win the Premier League and Champions League, hinting towards an impending exit.

    His decision not to put pen to paper on new terms as of yet has even cost him the captaincy last month.

    With just one year remaining on his current contract, a summer move is looking increasingly likely. Tottenham are interested, with Jose Mourinho making Hojbjerg his number one target.


    Spurs are confident of completing a deal, although the latest developments could see them face serious competition for his signature.

    That is because Manchester City have entered the race for the 24-year-old, with Guardiola looking to make changes to his squad.


    City are looking to bring in new faces to help them reclaim their Premier League crown next season having lost it to Liverpool.

    And Hojbjerg has been identified as a player who could help them do just that. He would add depth to the City midfield, while his 107 English league appearances would add plenty of experience.

    What’s more, Hojbjerg has worked with Guardiola previously having been at Bayern Munich while the Spaniard was in charge. He made 23 appearances for the German giants under the current City boss.

    That could give them an advantage in the race to secure his services, with Hojbjerg familiar with Guardiola’s tactics. The report adds that City’s superior financial position could also be a decisive factor.

    Dutch champions Ajax and Everton are also keeping an eye on his situation with views to making offers.
