Tottenham are ready to enter the tussle to sign Joachim Andersen from Sampdoria, report Genoa regional media outlet Primocanale.

It’s explained Mauricio Pochettino’s club have pointed at the signing, and are keen on the defender to the point of being ready to get involved in the efforts to sign him.

This would put the club up against Juventus and Inter Milan, who have also been linked with the Danish footballer.

It’s not the first time recently that Spurs have been linked with making a move for the player. At the end of September it was reported in Italy that ‘particularly Tottenham’ were interested.

Then Tottenham were said to have been scouting the player, and in mid October it was reported they’d been receiving positive updates.

A week ago, Italian newspaper Tuttosport gave Arsenal a 30% chance of signing the defender. Borussia Dortmund were given 35%, Juventus got 25%, Inter Milan 5%, and Roma 5%.

Tottenham didn’t get a mention in that report, and Arsenal don’t get a mention in this latest one.
