Longo: Spurs defensive midfielder with €20m price tag offered to Milan – the response

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan are expected to reinforce the team with a defensive midfielder in the summer and several players have been linked with the club. Pierre-Emile Højbjerg is the latest name, having reportedly been offered to the Rossoneri by his agent. 

One position that Milan have struggled to cover this season is defensive midfield, often playing with a very attacking-minded midfield tandem. The situation has improved since the recovery of Ismael Bennacer, but later today it will be Yacine Adli and Tijjani Reijnders together.

As a result, the Rossoneri are expected to reinforce that position this summer and several players have been linked with the move. According to Daniele Longo of Calciomercato.com, Unique Sports Group has offered Tottenham midfielder Højbjerg to the club.

The Dane has a price tag of €20m and his contract with Spurs will expire in 2025. A summer exit appears likely, therefore, but Milan’s response was cold as they are currently focused on other targets. As Longo states, Youssouf Fofana of Monaco is a more concrete target.

It should be noted that Højbjerg’s agency also has Malick Thiaw and Wolfsburg defender Maxence Lacroix as clients. The latter has been heavily linked with Milan in recent months and perhaps a concrete attempt will be made.

  1. Absolute no brainer, what an opportunity!
    Exactly the type of player we need, experienced and ready.
    He is plug and play

  2. ACM response are cold . Probably their main target are kephren & fofana . This spurs DM maybe have high salary in spurs so management not interested. Stick to fofana plan

  3. Sure has a low resell value but you get exp and leadership which this midfield badly needs. Not to mention dude was coached by Pep for a while. That’s an asset by itself

    1. By Pep?
      Pep barely trained him lol 😅 no he was trained by mourinho Nuno santos postecoglou and whoever was in Southampton. So no pep bro check it out. Better get young and of the future players in France like Khephren thuram and Youssouf fofana. You guys want exp we should try and get koopmeiners and my preference is Khephren thuram and teun koopmeiners

      1. Yes by Pep. You do know Pep was at bayern once upon a time, right? And so was Hojby.. And he played here and there, at that time.. Obviously he trained with the groupe and in the end he clocked 994 minutes with the club.. So yeah. HE WAS trained by Pep for a while..

        How daft do you have to be to not check that before you go and make a comment like this?

        And no, we dont need a younger player, we need exp
