Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to react after Calciomercato exclusively revealed that the club is keen to agree a €25m deal for Sampdoria centre-back Joachim Andersen.
The Dane is currently one of the best performing defenders in Serie A and has attracted the north London club’s interest as a result of his fine showings.
One would assume that the Lilywhites are searching for Toby Alderweireld’s replacement, due to serious doubts over his future beyond this season.
Despite tying the Belgian international down to a new contract recently until 2020, the fresh terms have seen a £25m release clause implemented into the former Ajax man’s deal, which could be seen as somewhat of a compromise after the 29-year-old rejected the offer of a long-term contract and was expected to leave in the summer.
Consequently, the interest in Andersen comes at a time when Alderweireld will be free to leave if any club meets his fairly achievable release clause, and Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to react to the transfer news…

Letting a ready made world class CB leave to replace with potential is crazy imo. Has to be like for like else we are weaker.

This one seems to have legs. Is he any good?

So we don’t show no interest in 2 windows but 3 weeks after it closes we meet officials…. I love a lie.

Suspect it will happen, the continued speculation reminds me of when we signed Kevin Wimmer. Fingers crossed he is ten times quicker than him!
