Potential consequences of Spurs signing Joachim Andersen

Potential consequences of Spurs signing Joachim Andersen

Tottenham Hotspur failed to get the better of Burnley earlier on today, which has damaged their Premier League title hopes massively.

Spurs will feel extremely disappointed with today’s result but they’ll definitely be relieved to have Harry Kane back from injury, as he will no doubt play a huge part from here on in until the end of the season.

Interestingly, it looks as if the North London club are looking to bolster their defence in the summer, as according to Calciomercato (via Vital Spurs), Tottenham Hotspur have made an offer for Joachim Andersen.

It’s safe to say that securing the services of a defender would have a number of positive and negative affects on players and the team as a whole, so here are the potential consequences of signing the Sampdoria man…

FOYTH EXITS

Juan Foyth has been a spectator in recent times after filling in for injuries during the first half of the season, and it doesn’t look as if he’ll stand any chance of breaking into the side next season with Andersen on their radar.

Indeed, the 21-year-old needs to be enjoying regular minutes to develop at this stage in his career, so Spurs securing the services of Andersen would inevitably push him towards a loan move, with Davinson Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen all remaining ahead of him in the pecking order.

DANIEL LEVY LANDS LONG-TERM JAN VERTONGHEN REPLACEMENT

Jan Vertonghen turns 32 in April, and Tottenham may begin to look towards the future of their central defence.

Daniel Levy can secure himself a long-term replacement for Vertonghen if he manages to sign Andersen as he’s only 22 years of age with plenty of potential still waiting to be unlocked. The Danish defender is also very similar to the Belgian as he uses his height, strength and aerial ability to his advantage, as well as being able to play with the ball at his feet, which is a big part of how Spurs operate under Mauricio Pochettino as they like to play out from the back.
