Hojbjerg is therefore set to become Tottenham's first major signing of the summer window and he'll give Mourinho another top class option in midfield as he'll provide competition for the likes of Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko in the middle of the park.

It has been confirmed that Tottenham Hotspur have signed Southampton captain Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, making him Jose Mourinho's first acquisition ahead of the 2020/21 season.

Sources in France have claimed that Celik could be sold for around £18 million, which, providing they can sell players, would fit into Tottenham's limited budget.

Finding a striker to act as back-up to Kane may prove hard, just as it did in January when Tottenham failed in a bid to sign Olivier Giroud from Chelsea.

Celik has done well for Lille this past season and he has the talent to develop into a quality full-back.

Spurs and Southampton are two clubs that have been busy in communication over two separate transfers and at the end of it they can both be pleased with the outcome.

It remains to be seen whether the Londoners can now agree on a fee with Lille. He needs to go on loan to a bottom half Premier League side where he will play week in, week out.

Spurs have been linked with a host of potential signings, including Lille defender Celik and he is a player the club are keen on. He contributed to 2 assists in Ligue 1 this past season.
