Tottenham Hotspur are thought to be keeping tabs on Joachim Anderson after his impressive performances for Fulham in the Premier League this season.
The 24-year-old defender has formed a quality partnership with Tosin Adarabioyo and the likes of Manchester United and Leicester City are monitoring his situation as well.
Apparently, Spurs are admirers of the Denmark international and Manchester United are looking for a partner for Harry Maguire.
According to the Telegraph, Lyon could sell the player permanently for a fee of around £25 million this summer and the transfer could prove to be a major bargain if Spurs can snap up the defender for that price.
Jose Mourinho needs to add more depth to his central defensive position and Anderson would be a superb addition in the long run.
He has already managed to adapt to the Premier League and he could make an immediate impact at Spurs next season.
The likes of Davinson Sanchez have been linked with a move away from Spurs in the summer and Andersen could be his replacement. It will be interesting to see if he partners Toby Alderweireld at the heart of Spurs’ defence next season.
The likes of Joe Rodon and Japhet Tanganga are young and they need more time to develop into regular starters for the Premier League club.
Some of the Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the potential signing of the 24-year-old defender and here is what they had to say.
That’s a steal. Sanches was nearly twice that.
