According to Danish newspaper BT, Tottenham Hotspur are set to hold talks with the representatives of Lyon defender Joachim Andersen.

It’s claimed that Andersen’s representatives are expected to meet with Tottenham next week ahead of a potential summer deal.

The report adds that Manchester United are keen on the Fulham loanee, but Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Leicester City have joined the race too.

Andersen isn’t completely against staying with Fulham if they stay in the Premier League, but Spurs are emerging as the favourites to land him.

Andersen is represented by ICM Stellar Sports, who also represent Gareth Bale, meaning Tottenham have history with his reps.

The 24-year-old joined Lyon from Sampdoria in 2019, but has really excelled in the Premier League with Fulham this season.

Spurs already have one Danish international in their ranks in Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, and could now land another in Andersen.

With talks scheduled for next week, Spurs are moving quickly to win the race for Andersen – and give Jose Mourinho’s back line a welcome boost ahead of next season.
