The Saints value Hojbjerg at £25m but Spurs are also discussing a permanent deal for right-back Kyle Walker-Peters to move the other way.
Walker-Peters has been on loan on the south coast and Southampton are interested in buying him but believe the price has to be right.
Sky Sports News has been told Southampton have also been alerted to the potential availability of West Ham right-back Ryan Fredericks.
Everton are also interested in Hojbjerg and are said to have offered a deal rising to £19m so far, but Sky Sports News has been told Hojbjerg wants to join Tottenham.
Sky Sports News reported earlier this month that both Spurs and Everton had opened talks over Hojbjerg, and that the former wanted to include Walker-Peters in the deal.
Sky Sports News also broke the news in January that Hojbjerg was set to be a top summer target for Jose Mourinho, as he looks to restore Spurs' place in the Champions League next season.
The summer transfer window will run for 10 weeks from July 27 and close at 11pm on October 5. A domestic-only window for trades between the Premier League and EFL then runs from October 5 and closes on Friday October 16 at 5pm.
