Ajax rival Spurs, Everton for Hojbjerg

Ajax have joined the race for wantaway Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

The London Evening Standard says Tottenham are also interested in the Denmark international, but Southampton's £35million valuation is unlikely to be met by Jose Mourinho's side.

Everton is another Premier League rival keen on Hojbjerg.

However, interest is also arriving from Ajax, which could have an advantage on their English rivals.

Ajax signed former Saints star Dusan Tadic two years ago.
