Joachim Anderson - Denmark CB

Manchester United continue to be linked with center backs and the latest name in the lime light is that of Danish international Joachim Anderson.

According to The Telegraph, Man Utd are interested in signing the 24-year-old, who is owned by Lyon and currently plays on loan for Fulham.

The reliable British source have claimed that Tottenham Hotspur are also monitoring the CB and Lyon have told the suitors that a fee of £25million would be required to get his signing done in the summer.

The Cottagers are currently in the relegation zone and have mostly struggled in this season’s Premier League. Anderson has been one of their top performers.

The Denmark star has so far started 26 league games for Fulham and helped the team keep no fewer than 9 clean sheets. He notably put in solid performances away from home against Everton (0-2) and reigning Premier League champions Liverpool (0-1).

Anderson made his debut for the senior international side in 2019 and so far, in 4 appearances, he is yet to concede a goal for his country. He featured in all three World Cup qualification fixtures during the recent international break and helped his team earn maximum points.

At Old Trafford, the likes of Maguire and Lindelof have done well in the central defense but the Red Devils need to be rock solid to challenge Man City, who have been formidable at the back, for the Premier League title.

Solskjaer also lacks depth in the central defense because Bailly has been injury prone and the likes of Tuanzebe and Jones are not good enough. In your view, should Man Utd splash £25million to sign Joachim Anderson?
