Tottenham player evasive on claims of ‘very financially attractive’ offer from Saudi

Pierre-Emile Højbjerg has been restricted to a substitute role at Tottenham Hotspur this season, managing 66 minutes of action from three league games.

The international player from Denmark informed his country’s media on Tuesday that he had spoken with Ange Postecoglou on his limited playing time at Spurs and vowed he would continue to respect the manager’s choice.

Both of those things, as well as the UK-based rumors that the Tottenham player had been contacted by a Saudi Arabian club, have been recounted by Ekstra Bladet.

According to the tabloid, they are aware that the midfielder turned down a’very financially appealing’ offer from an undisclosed Middle Eastern team this summer.

The 28-year-old was asked about the “possible future” in Saudi Arabia, but he would neither confirm or deny anything.

I am looking forward to the game against San Marino,” he said.Due to his lack of playing time after Postecoglou joined Spurs, the former Southampton player was linked to Atlético Madrid, Manchester United, and Fulham.

Despite the challenging circumstances at Tottenham, Ekstra Bladet reports that Hjbjerg is a “safe bet” for Denmark boss Kasper Hjulmand and will play a “important role” in this month’s European qualifiers against San Marino and Finland.


Tottenham transfers: Door opens for Postecoglou to sign classy centre-back after Sanchez exit

Tosin Adarabioyo, a defender who plays for Fulham in the Premier League, may be available for move to Tottenham in the January transfer window.

The 25-year-old center back was a target for Ange Postecoglou during the summer transfer season, especially after a deal to join Monaco of France fell through.

However, Adarabioyo is being left out in the cold under Marco Silva after a late escape from Craven Cottage fell through.

According to Football Insider, the large defender, who is in the final year of his contract, burned his bridges at Fulham, making it difficult for him to reenter the team.

Last month, it was asserted that Fulham was preparing for Adarabioyo’s departure and searching for replacements in the market.

The player stayed in west London, though, after Spurs’ offer fell through and Monaco’s proposal was rejected.

According to Football Insider, Adarabioyo has been training by himself up until recently and has only played as a substitute once this season after being left off the matchday squad for their first two games.

Adarabioyo first came to Fulham from Manchester City’s youth in 2020, and in January of this year, the club activated an extension to keep him at Craven Cottage through the next summer.

Since his arrival, the defender has made 108 appearances for Fulham across all competitions, netting three goals and laying on two assists.

Abarabioyo was a regular starter for Marco Silva’s team last season, but it now appears that he will be leaving in January, with Tottenham the clear favorites to sign him.

Due to the fact that Eric Dier is still not in Postecoglou’s plans and Davinson Sanchez was allowed to leave to Turkey this week, the north London team has several gaps at center back.

Only Ben Davies and Ashley Phillips remain as Cristian Romero and Micky van de Ven’s backup players after the summer signings.

On September 16, Tottenham will resume play when they visit Sheffield United in the Premier League, and Fulham will host Luton.
