After successfully guiding his side to a top-six finish in the Premier League this season, despite having been 14th when the Portuguese chief arrived at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium back in December, Spurs will compete in the Europa League next season.
Having qualified for Europe for the 2020/21 campaign, Spurs will be a more attractive destination to a whole host of players, as playing in Europe is what every footballer strives for during their career.
Tottenham have been linked with a number of players since the window opened just a few days ago.
The most heavily linked is midfielder Hojbjerg, who has made his intentions to move to Spurs this summer clear.
With that in mind, here is a round-up of all the very latest on Spurs’ pursuit of the midfielder and all the very latest.
Midfielder wants Tottenham switch
The Danish international, who has been on the books of Bayern Munich in the past, wants to seal a move to the North London club this summer, with right-back Kyle Walker-Peters set to be involved in a deal.
That is according to a report by the Evening Standard, who claim that Spurs would be ready to offer the Saints Walker-Peters on a permanent deal as a way to convince the St Mary’s club into letting go of Hojbjerg.
The report also claims that Southampton want a fee of £35million to part with the midfield enforcer, but Spurs believe they could reduce that fee if they successfully use Walker-Peters as part of the deal.
Manchester City enter Hojbjerg chase
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is keen on the idea of having a reunion with Hojbjerg at the Etihad Stadium, a report by the Daily Record claims.
The duo spent time together at Bayern Munich a few years ago and Guardiola is open to the idea of teaming up with him once again.
The midfielder is now into the final year of his current deal on the South Coast and has expressed a desire to play at a “higher level.”
Spurs closing in on deal
Tottenham are closing in on the signing of Southampton midfield enforcer Hojbjerg, a report by Sky Sports claims.

Spurs have been keeping tabs on the central-midfielder for several months and are now reported to be inching closer and closer towards getting a deal over the line.
It is claimed that Spurs have offered Southampton £15million to conclude a deal, though the Saints value the 24-year-old at £25million.
However, Tottenham are prepared to use right-back Kyle Walker-Peters, who has been on loan at St Mary’s since January, to try and convince the Saints to let go of the midfielder for less.
£15m deal close
Tottenham are on the verge of completing a deal for Hojbjerg, according to the Telegraph.
The reports claim that the outline of a package with Southampton has been agreed, with Spurs paying £15 million to the Saints for the Danish international.
It is also claimed that a deal that will see Kyle Walker-Peters move permanently to St Mary’s is also almost complete, with both deals, although done separately, to be announced in the coming days.
Personal terms between Hojbjerg and Spurs are still to be agreed, although they are expected to be a formality with the midfielder keen on a move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
£25m fee agreed
Tottenham and Southampton have now reached an agreement for Hojbjerg to move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, according to reports.
It is reported that Tottenham will pay an initial fee of £20 million up front, with an additional £5 million in add-ons.
Hojbjerg will now hold talks with Tottenham over personal terms, but that is expected to be a formality with the player having his heart set on a move to Spurs.
Kyle Walker-Peters will also be moving the opposite way for a fee of £12 million after a successful loan spell at St Mary’s Stadium.
Social media hint
Tottenham fans have also noticed a potential hint from the player himself on social media, after he ‘liked’ a post from Jose Mourinho.
