Atletico Madrid, which initially had Lee Kang-in in mind, is looking to reinforce the midfield this summer by turning to Pierre-Emil Hoivier (28, Tottenham Hotspur).
Spanish media Lelebo said on the 21st (Korean time), “The player Atletico is watching this summer is Spurs anchorman Hojbjerg.” .온라인바카라
At the end of last season, Atlético handed over an official recruitment offer to Lee Kang-in’s team, Mallorca, on the condition of adding players to cash. According to local reports, it was an offer including winger Rodrigo Riquelme (22) for 12 million euros (approximately 16.9 billion won), but Mallorca rejected it.
Atlético, whose revenues decreased due to being eliminated in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League last season, felt burdened by the higher transfer fee and withdrew from the recruitment of Lee Kang-in.
▲ Hoivier (right) is regarded as a genius midfielder born in Denmark.
Hoivier, who was picked as an alternative, has been called a genius midfielder born in Denmark since his youth days. His talent was recognized and he made his professional debut in 2012 with Bayern Munich’s second team. At this time, he was praised by Pep Guardiola as “Munich’s Sergio Busquets”.
In 2016, he moved to Premier League side Southampton. Soon after, he was on the lips of reporters as a league-class defensive midfielder. He stood out for his vigorous defense and good chance-making through long passes.
In August 2020, he changed into a Spurs uniform at the strong request of Tottenham manager José Mourinho at the time. After that, for three seasons, he played a big role as an immovable main central midfielder to protect Tottenham’s third line.
During this period, he played 109 games in the league alone and showed off his ‘Steel King’ aspect. Last season, he was responsible for the team’s performance by recording an 88.6% pass success rate with 4 goals and 5 assists in 35 games.
He is the anchorman who relieved 120% of the regret for Harry Winks, Moussa Sissoko, and Tanguy Ndombele after Christian Eriksen left the team.
Hoivier has not had any impact on his position in the team even after Mourinho, who brought him, was sacked in April 2021. Ryan Mason, Nuno Santo, Antonio Conte, Christian Stellini, and other managers and acting managers took over and passed on the baton, and they firmly maintained their starting position even during the turbulent times.
Recently, the British media The Sun and the German statistics website Transfermarkt predicted that it was listed as one of the best 11 of Enzy Postecogluho without fail.
