Crystal Palace have moved to the front of the queue for Lyon defender Joachim Andersen, according to The Telegraph’s Mike McGrath.
Andersen has been heavily linked with a move to Tottenham for a number of weeks, with The Express claiming that he had been ‘widely tipped’ to mak the move to North London.
The Denmark international impressed in the Premier League this season while on loan at Fulham and has since returned to France following the Cottagers’ relegation back to the Championship.

It appears that whoever was on Steve Hitchen’s shopping list earlier this year may have been amended following the arrivals of Fabio Paratici and Nuno Espirito Santo.
Andersen had a decent season in a struggling Fulham side, however, the likes of Romero and Kounde are a class above the Dane. Hopefully, if Spurs are setting their sights on other targets, they aren’t left empty-handed while Andersen ends up at another Premier League side.
