Longari: Milan await possible discount for Tottenham midfielder Hojbjerg – the latest

By Isak Möller -

Pierre-Emil Hojbjerg has been linked with a move to AC Milan in the last few weeks and while the idea has seemingly gone quiet, the interest remains. According to a journalist, the Rossoneri are awaiting a potential discount from Tottenham. 

Milan are currently in talks with Monaco over Youssouf Fofana, who is the primary target for the midfield, but he might not be the only one to arrive. Hojbjerg has also been linked with the club as his contract with Tottenham will expire next summer.

According to SportItalia’s Gianluigi Longari, as cited by @garante_il on X, Hojbjerg has been offered to Milan by his entourage and the Rossoneri are evaluating the player. Tottenham are also open to discussing a sale but for the time being, their demands are a bit too high.

As such, the interest is currently on ‘standby’ and it remains to be seen if there will be an opening towards the end of the transfer window. Given the expiring contract, it’s possible that Spurs could settle for a little less than first intended in order to avoid a free transfer.

In any case, Milan’s main target is Fofana and that is really the important signing, while Hojbjerg could potentially be a ‘late mercato opportunity’.

    1. I can understand that some people would love us to sign Hjulmand but what I can’t understand is that people think we would actually pay 60-70 mil for a player because that is in the vicinity of what he will cost by now.
      I wouldn’t oppose the idea of signing Højbjerg though as he could offer something to this squad.

  1. I think we need this guy more then Fofana. Also he is valued at 18mil and if he is on an expiring contract and dont want to renew, we can get him for like 10mil. He is not that old aither at 28.

    1. We need two good defensive midfielders if we really want to upgrade our midfield, so I think two of them can come. I also think we should get Morata and Depay ,a good deal especially since the later is free.

  2. Milan’s main keywords this summer’s transfer market: waiting, discount, rejected players, Mr. X (Xtra Cheap, I guess)
    I am saying “main”, not only those words

        1. Mike hobbled off thanks to Mike. He needs to figure out what he can and can’t do with his body….like slide tackling as a GK. Im sure that feeling was like a hyperextension after the tackle he made. I’m as.suming this because I’ve done the exact same thing but much older 😂

  3. Here’s an idea to get a discount for Hojbjerg. Remember the 12M€ we wanted to pay to get Royal ? Add them to whatever we are going to propose to Hojbjerg and ditch Royal altogether.

    1. Very well said. We don’t need Royal,if we want a good upgrade to our right back position then Cancello is the deal to close. This is even sweeter when you consider that he is efficient in both flanks.

  4. But according to the people on here we should pay 50 million for Hojbjerg because we can’t wait and must do it right away. And lets whip out the crystal ball.

    1. Imagine if management just started buying players left right and center when the window opened – all we’d hear is “they’re just buying random rejects without stopping to think! It’s the banter era all over again!!”

  5. What we really need is to sell Pobega, Adli and Bennercia and bring in Andre Trindade and Fofana.
    We need a midfield Trio of Reinjers, Fofana and Andre Trindade to match and compete with Thuram, Douglas and Koopaimeyers of Juventus.
    That will be the strongest midfield in Serie-A this season under Tiago Motta…
