The Athletic have reported that some French sources are shocked at how keen Tottenham are on Lyon defender, Joachim Andersen this summer.

Andersen enters the summer transfer market off the back of an impressive season with Fulham in the Premier League last time out.

Spurs, meanwhile, struggled at centre-back, to say the least. Eric Dier, Davinson Sanchez and Toby Alderweireld all endured sub-par seasons for the North London club.

The Athletic reveal that some French insiders are surprised that Tottenham were not put off by the fact that Andersen was relegated with Fulham last season. They also do not quite understand why there is so much excitement around the centre-back.

Andersen has been named as one of the defenders on Tottenham’s radar this summer and Lyon are said to be ready to accept an offer of £25m.

The Athletic’s Jack Pitt-Brooke also revealed recently on the View From The Lane podcast that Anderson had chosen Spurs as the club he would like to join.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Andersen is a defender who looks like Toby but is not even close in standards. I have watched him play this year for Fulham. It was his defensive partner at the back a young english man who had the better stats come the season end. Him and dier playing together would be a nightmare too similar but then again dier still being at spurs come the season start would be a nightmare.

  2. I remember a thug at the back for Flam when he ruffed up our forwards. Flam are one of fungus’ cocksuck teams. He would get booked every time doing that at Spurs. Dier does. Foyth got more class and talent.
    Fungus still getting things his way. Big job ruining Scouse’s season. Did a big job trying to fuk City. Anyone see the assault by Burns on Foden. No!!??
