Sampdoria defender Joachim Andersen has revealed that the time could be right to leave the Serie A outfit amid reports of interest in his services from around Europe.

The Dane has attracted interest from North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal whilst also rumours have circulated about a possible move to AC Milan where he would follow in the footsteps of his former boss Marco Giampaolo.

The 23-year-old has been mentioned as a potential replacement for Toby Alderweireld if he does end up departing the club this summer with his £25million transfer release clause making him a very attractive option for potential suitors (Evening Standard).

With Spurs already having Alderweireld in their ranks along with Davinson Sanchez, Jan Vertonghen, Juan Foyth and even Eric Dier able to slot into the heart of defence it would be surprising if Mauricio Pochettino made a move for Andersen before Alderweireld could depart.

Andersen told Goal: “It could be time for me to further my career.

“I have loved my time in Sampdoria but maybe it’s time to move on to develop further.

“He’s played a big role in my development,” he added in this interview with Goal.

“He is known as one of the best coaches in Italy when it comes to defensive organisation.

“I have learned a lot from him and he has made me a more complete footballer.”
