The Hammers have been linked with a move for the towering Denmark International since last summer (The Mirror).

Meanwhile, Spurs are ready to battle their London rivals all the way for the 25-year-old centre-back’s signature (BT Denmark).

Andersen really impressed during a loan spell with Fulham last season. He acclimatised easily to the rigours of the Premier League.

At 25, the Dane is a real leader already. So it is little wonder why there is a such a clamour for his signature.

Joachim Anderson wanted by West Ham and Tottenham

With both London clubs in the race for the Lyon centre-back’s signature, there could be one almighty tussle this summer.

Spurs may well have a big advantage over the Hammers, however.


Football.London claims that Andersen is represented by Jonathan Barnett’s ICM Stellar Sports agency, which also represents Joe Rodon, Ben Davies and Gareth Bale. The company allegedly have a close relationship with Daniel Levy.

That fact will surely help smooth over Tottenham’s potential move to sign the Dane. And that obviously leaves West Ham in a difficult position.

Losing out to Spurs would be a big blow to stomach for the Hammers.

In 31 Premier League appearances last season, During those outings, Andersen averaged 1.1 tackles, 1.4 interceptions and 4.8 clearances per game. He also won an average of 3.2 aerial duals per match (Who Scored).

He is a truly trop class defender. Andersen could be available for around £25 million this summer (Metro).

We reckon that he’s more likely to be playing for Tottenham than West Ham next season, however. And that would be a real shame.
