Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly followed up their initial interest in Joachim Andersen by scheduling a meeting with his representatives, according to the Daily Express.
The 24-year-old centre-back, who is on loan at Fulham from Lyon, has been in sensational form this season, so much so that he’s been handed the captain’s armband on multiple occasions.
Spurs, meanwhile, have had an inconsistent season, with outstanding displays offset by some really poor performances, and the north Londoners’ back line has been particularly shaky for much of the campaign.
The Daily Express claims that Tottenham have looked to move ahead in the race for Andersen, by penciling in a meeting with his representatives.
The club are on good terms with the Denmark international’s entourage having previously held discussions in 2019, added the outlet.
Spurs will reportedly face competition from Manchester United and Fulham, who could potentially try to make his loan deal permanent if they secure Premier League safety.
Andersen has done so well at Fulham that club legend Tony Gale described him as “absolutely sensational” and suggested he’s the best defender at Craven Cottage since Brede Hangeland.
It’s little surprise to hear that he’s in demand, and given Spurs really could do with bolstering their frail defensive ranks, he’d certainly be a good shout for the north Londoners.
