Tottenham set for meeting with agents of Joachim Andersen over summer transfer
According to Danish publication BT (h/t Express), Tottenham Hotspur are set to hold a meeting with the representatives of on-loan Fulham defender Joachim Andersen in a week over the possibility of a summer transfer.
The 24-year-old arrived at Fulham on a season-long loan deal from French club Olympique Lyon last summer. Having picked up an injury soon after joining, Andersen missed a few games early in the campaign. Once fit though, he has become an undroppable member of Scott Parker’s side.
Such has been his impact at the back that Andersen has been named the captain for a lot of the Cottagers’ fixtures this term. His rise in stature at Craven Cottage hasn’t gone unnoticed with a number of top-flight clubs, including Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester United taking a keen interest. (h/t Daily Mail)
However, as per the aforementioned report, though, Tottenham may have taken the first step in securing the signing of the Danish international. It is claimed that the Spurs hierarchy is set to hold a meeting with the agents of Andersen to assess the possibility of a summer transfer.
Heading into the new season, our defence will once again need restructuring given how inconsistent the likes of Davinson Sanchez and Eric Dier have been. In addition to that, Toby Alderweireld is not getting any younger. Joe Rodon has shown signs of promise when given a chance but needs time to establish himself as a top-tier centre-back.
So, someone like Andersen, who has been responsible Fulham still standing within chance of a survival in the Premier League, can be a solid addition to the ranks.

The report adds that Andersen’s parent club, Lyon, will be open to doing business for a transfer fee of around £25m. But the main hindrance for Tottenham will be the competition from the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United.
