Some Tottenham fans on social media were left impressed with the performance of Joachim Anderson in the North Londoners’ 1-0 win against Fulham on Thursday.
Anderson was rated very highly during his time at Sampdoria, with the Dane considered to be one of the best young defenders in Serie A at the time.
Tottenham were heavily linked with a move for the central defender back in 2018.
The 24-year-old was eventually signed by Lyon in 2019 but he has not had the impact he would have hoped for at the Ligue 1 club.
Anderson joined Fulham on a season-long loan deal last summer and he has established himself as a key player at the back for Scott Parker’s side.
The centre-back came up against a formidable Spurs frontline of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Gareth Bale and Dele Alli on Thursday but looked dominant and in control.
Anderson also showed his ability on the ball by picking out Fulham’s forwards and wingers with a number of accurate passes.
Some Spurs fans on social media believe that the on-loan Lyon star can be a potential replacement for Toby Alderweireld in the summer.

Thought Joachim Anderson was very good at the back for Fulham. How did they get him on loan – Lyon bought him for £25m only year and half ago? We were heavily linked whilst he was at Sampdoria.

I’m going to need spurs to sign Joachim Anderson from Fullham. Rolls Royce of a Centre Back 🤫

Impressed me in both games against us, a presence at the back & comfortable bringing the ball out from the back.

Let’s hope Fulham get relegated and we can get him on the cheap.

He’s class…would like us to snatch him like we did Toby many years ago…his passing reminds me of Toby as well

Spurs Web Opinion
Anderson is certainly a great fit for the way Fulham play owing to his ability on the ball. However, the jury is still out on whether he is of the standard required for a top Premier League side particularly since he has flattered to deceive at Lyon.
