Roma join Andersen bidding war

Roma have joined Milan, Tottenham, Arsenal and Lyon in the race for Sampdoria defender Joachim Andersen, seen as the replacement for Kostas Manolas.

The 23-year-old Denmark international is on the market, but a bidding war has erupted and is pushing the price up from €30m to €35m.

He only joined from FC Twente in 2017 for €1.4m, so represents a huge profit margin for the Blucerchiati.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the usual suspects of Milan, Spurs and Arsenal have been joined by Olympique Lyonnais and above all Roma.

The Giallorossi see Andersen as a replacement for Manolas, who is on his way to Napoli for the €36m release clause.
