According to a report by the Daily Express, Tottenham Hotspur have ‘made their move‘ to win the race for highly rated defender Joachim Andersen as Daniel Levy schedules talks with the player’s representatives.
Tottenham set for Andersen talks
As per this significant update, the Spurs chairman is apparently set to sit down with Andersen’s agents in the ‘next few weeks‘ to discuss a possible transfer to Tottenham this summer.
The Daily Express have now claimed that Levy is apparently set to meet with Andersen’s representatives imminently and that Tottenham have ‘made their move’ to win the race for his signature.
Transfer Tavern take
The 6 foot 3 (1.92m) sensation has impressed under Fulham manager Scott Parker this season on loan from Lyon, starting 26 Premier League matches and averaging the joint-fifth most clearances per game in the entire division (WhoScored).
Compared to Tottenham’s squad, only Joe Rodon has averaged more interceptions per game than the Dane’s 1.3, while he is also beaten in fewer dribbles per match than Spurs centre-backs Davinson Sanchez and Toby Alderweireld.
These exploits are arguably incentive to consider Andersen as a top target, with Cottagers legend Tony Gale describing him as ‘absolutely sensational’ (fulhamfc.com).
Gold first explained that Spurs are chasing a ‘leader‘ who can marshal their shaky backline, and Andersen definitely seems to fit the bill as Levy schedules transfer talks.
