As Andersen signs new Sampdoria deal, have Tottenham missed out?

Sampdoria defender Joachim Andersen has officially signed a new deal with the club.

The Dane has committed his future to the Italian outfit, after being linked with Tottenham and, most recently, Manchester United.

The news will come as a blow to Spurs especially, with Toby Alderweireld potentially moving on in one of the next two transfer windows.

Andersen would have been an ideal replacement for the Belgian international, who is a target of Barcelona and United.

Sampdoria have essentially ensured that they will fetch a huge sum for the player with the new contract – but of course, they’d sooner keep hold of the player.

Andersen is having a fine season

The 6ft 4in defender has played every single minute so far in Serie A.

 

He has showcased his dominant aerial ability and leadership, as well as a respectable ability to break the lines with accurate passing.

He is also very handy at pinging long balls, which is trait of Alderweireld’s.

The fact that Andersen has put pen to paper on a new deal could be bad news in the sense that, United and Jose Mourinho may now refocus their efforts on trying to sign Alderweireld.

From a Tottenham standpoint, it may encourage them to step up their reported pursuit of Matthijs de Ligt.
