Spurs keep tabs on Andersen ahead of summer swoop

15th April 2019, 19:12 by Gareth Freeman

Spurs sent scouts to Sampdoria at the weekend to keep an eye on target Joachim Andersen ahead of the summer transfer window.

Andersen has enjoyed an exceptional campaign for Samp and has been virtually an ever-present in the heart of their defence.

Arsenal and Manchester United have been linked with the Danish centre-half, and he has also been mooted as a potential target for Italian heavyweights Inter Milan, but it is Spurs who look to be leading the race for his signature.

Reports last month claimed the London club and Samp had begun discussions regarding a potential switch and Tottenham scouts watched Andersen in action on Sunday as the Blucerchiati downed city-rivals Genoa 2-0 at the Luigi Ferraris.

Spurs are expected to bring in a few new faces over the summer and over the weekend NK Osijek keeper Marko Malenica emerged as a target, while Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes, currently on loan at Everton, has also been linked.
