The past few weeks have seen Tottenham linked with a new centre-back: Joachim Andersen.

With Toby Alderweireld potentially leaving in the summer, and Jan Vertonghen’s contract running its course, Spurs could be left in a situation where they are left with just Davinson Sanchez and Juan Foyth, as unlikely as that may be.

The Sampdoria defender has apparently been on Tottenham’s radar for a while now, with a report stating they’d been keeping an eye on his performances and reviews so far being ‘positive’.

A fee of around €25m was touted to be enough to convince the Serie A outfit, although that remains to be confirmed.

On Friday, Calciomercato look at the situation surrounding the 22-year-old, and believe Roma have joined Juventus and Inter, who know Sampdoria well after dealing with them for Milan Skriniar.

The Serie A champions also have a small advantage, having loaned out Emil Audero to Marco Giampaolo’s side, meaning they could facilitate a permanent transfer if they are given an advantage in the Andersen race.

This presents Tottenham, who are also mentioned in the article, with some tough competition, especially if the Dane’s priority were to be a stay in Italy where he has been since August 2017, signed from FC Twente for £1.3m.

As for the valuation, the website believe somewhere in between €25-30m should do the trick, echoing the previous reports.
