Denmark goalscorer Morten Hjulmand linked with move to Spurs but fans spot a big issue during England game

Denmark goalscorer Morten Hjulmand linked with move to Spurs but fans spot a big issue during England game

The 24-year-old midfielder has been linked with a move to Tottenham in recent months.

Denmark midfielder Morten Hjulmand has become a huge talking point amongst fans after he netted for his country in their Euro 2024 group stage clash against England.

The 24-year-old, who equalised for Kasper Hjulmand's side with a superb strike from range, was one of Denmark's standout performers at Frankfurt's Deutsche Bank Park.

His tireless efforts against England will come as no surprise to those who have been linked with a move for the defensive midfielder.

Hjulmand, who joined Sporting CP from Leece last summer, has reportedly been tracked by Spurs and Manchester United following an impressive campaign in Lisbon.

Earlier this year, the Dane said his “goal” was to one day play in the Premier League after he was praised by United captain Bruno Fernandes.

“It’s always great to receive praise from other big profiles," he added when speaking to Tipsbladet. "I know he’s a former Sporting player and he’s still a big fan of the club, so it’s great to know he’s still watching."

Hjulmand has also been strongly linked with a move to Spurs in recent months but during Thursday's game against England, some fans made a discovery.

Having followed them growing up, Hjulmand decided to get a special crest commemorating the 125th anniversary of Arsenal’s formation tattooed on his left arm.

In fact, he opened up on his admiration for former Gunners midfielder Patrick Vieira and labelled him an "inspiration".

“My dad supported and we watched games together when we were younger,” he said in an interview with Sporting CP's official website.

“When I started watching football, Arsenal had a fantastic team and Patrick Vieira was the captain and played in midfield. He was and is a great inspiration for me.”

Ahead of this week's clash against England, Hjulmand said he would be "ready for a new season at Sporting" after being asked about rumours surrounding his future.

"Right now I’m focused on the national team. We will try to get three points on Thursday," he added. "We will talk about this after those games."
