Journalist Dean Jones has highlighted that Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is on the radar of Roma after Jose Mourinho is keen on bringing him to Italy.

Hojbjerg has been linked with a move away from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer, with Roma reportedly showing interest in the Premier League man. Mourinho is familiar with the Danish midfielder from his time at Spurs and will know his capabilities.

Do you think Hojbjerg will leave Spurs?

Hojbjerg signed for Spurs in 2020 from Southampton and he has made 99 appearances in all competitions since, including 34 in the league this term, meaning he has missed just two games all season.

With the reports of a move to Roma for Hojbjerg, Jones highlighted to GiveMeSport that the 26-year-old would be a great asset for Mourinho if he was to join the Italian side.

“One thing I’m hearing on Hojbjerg is that Jose Mourinho quite fancies taking him to Roma. Next season Jose intends to ask the board to back his vision as he thinks they can make a real push at the top of Serie A – and Hojbjerg could be a great asset,” Jones said.

So, there appears to be another twist out of Tottenham with another side now in the race for Hojbjerg. This comes after there were claims of Newcastle being interested and another claim suggesting Conte would be fuming should he actually leave the club, so things appear to be heating up.

Hojbjerg has been a superb performer for Spurs this season, in the Premier League for his side, he has the highest amount of accurate passes on average per game (61.5), the second most amount of interceptions on average per game (1.4), and the joint third amount of tackles on average per game (2.2), as per Sofascore.

With Hojbjerg being such a consistent performer and barely missing a game if he was to depart the club in the summer, then he would be a huge miss for Conte, and he may have to spend big to find an adequate replacement.

Oliver Skipp has missed a large period of this season due to injury, and he recently signed a new contract that will see him stay at the club until at least 2027, so Conte may have the pairing as the long-term future in the middle of midfield.
