Report: Andersen aware of Spurs interest, but they may look elsewhere
Joachim Andersen is aware of interest from Spurs this summer, but The Sun claims that Tottenham could ultimately choose to look elsewhere.
Andersen was one of the players to emerge from Fulham’s season last year with real credit.
The Dane’s arrival seemed to be pivotal in providing Scott Parker’s men with a real chance to beat the drop in the Premier League.
Obviously, Fulham failed to keep themselves up. But Andersen may well have done enough to earn himself a fresh chance in England’s top flight.
The Sun reports that Tottenham and Crystal Palace want the 25-year-old. However, the Eagles may already be out of the running.
According to The Sun, parent club Lyon want around £26 million. And it has been claimed that that has priced Palace out of the race.
Andersen meanwhile, is aware of Spurs’ interest. But the report adds that Fabio Paratici may look elsewhere.
Spurs may feel Andersen asking price makes move too much of a gamble?
Of course, Tottenham have been linked with a raft of defenders this summer.
So perhaps Spurs may also feel that paying £26 million for Andersen is too much.
It would potentially be a roll of the dice. He did not have the best spell at Lyon. And the expectations at Fulham were nowhere near as high as they would be in North London.
So you can understand why Spurs may be looking elsewhere for the time-being.
