Son Heung-min leaves for Atletico in the end

British media Telegraph reported on the 6th (Korea Standard Time) that “Tottenham has decided to listen to other clubs’ proposals for Pierre-Emile Hoibier (28) in the transfer market this summer.”

Hoivier left Southampton and joined Tottenham in 2020. His extensive experience at Bayern Munich, Schalke, and Southampton was expected to be a valuable asset for Tottenham.

The recruitment effect was excellent. He quickly became involved in Tottenham. Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte also utilized him as the team’s core player.

He also performed well last season. He played in 44 matches throughout all tournaments. Among them, he was evaluated as one of the few Tottenham players who played his part by scoring five goals and seven assists.

The mood of this season was completely different from that of last season. Tottenham manager Enze Postecoglou selected Yves Bissouma and Pape Sarr as key midfielders. Hoibier’s position was inevitably reduced.

This is supported by records. In many cases, Hoivier was a backup rather than a regular player. He had limited chances to play in the league this season, as he started only seven games.

Prospects for next season are even worse. Tottenham is continuing its bid to recruit Conor Gallagher (24, Chelsea). It is considering paying £50 million (W86.2 billion) in transfer fee to recruit him.

Atletico Madrid has offered a helping hand. According to the latest report, Atletico are ready to push for the recruitment of Hoivier once again, following the summer and January last year.

Recruitment of a new midfielder is considered one of Atletico’s goals. In order to compete for the title next season, it is essential to recruit a midfielder to work with Koke and Rodrigo de Paul.

There is a good chance that the deal will be signed. Telegraph said, “Hoybier’s market value has dropped significantly, as his contract is about to expire in 2025. Atletico believe it will be able to recruit him for 15 million euros (about 21.9 billion won).”
