Newcastle United plan to make a bid to sign Tottenham’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg this summer.

Hojbjerg, 26, has been a mainstay for Spurs since joining from Southampton in 2020 for £15million.

However, manager Antonio Conte wants to make changes to his squad at the end of the season and sees Hojbjerg as a player who could demand a significant fee that would help start a rebuild.

Corresponding The Mirror, Newcastle boss Eddie Howe is an admirer of the Dane and would be interested in signing him for £30m.

Since Howe became Toon Army manager, Newcastle have won 10 of their last 14 games and the signing of a player of Hojbjerg’s rank would be another step in the right direction since the club took over.

However, the report goes on to say that Roma could also be interested in Hojbjerg’s signature as Jose Mourinho is the manager who bought the midfielder for Tottenham two years ago.

Since arriving in north London, Hojbjerg has secured a place in the Spurs squad and has already made 96 appearances in all competitions.

A departure for the former Bayern Munich player would leave Tottenham with only Oliver Skipp, Harry Winks and Rodrigo Bentancur as midfield options.

Conte is believed to be looking to sign a centre-back, two full-backs, a midfielder and a forward as part of a summer overhaul at White Hart Lane.

The 52-year-old has praised Hojbjerg’s performances since taking charge at Tottenham.

Earlier this season he said: “Pierre is another important player for us, he’s young but he has more experience than others and he’s a good player.”
