Olympique Lyonnais are the favourites to sign Joachim Andersen, although the €18m offer is a long way off Sampdoria’s asking price.
The defender has also been linked with Roma, Inter, Milan, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.
He is a 23-year-old Dane who only left Dutch side FC Twente for Samp at a cost of €1.5m in the summer of 2017.
According to Eurosport and Sky Sport Italia, Lyon are the club to have come closest to the Sampdoria demands of €25-30m.
Their €18m proposal is still not enough to be accepted, but the Ligue 1 side are certainly the favourites for his signature now.
Milan had been the primary contenders, considering Andersen worked with new Rossoneri Coach Marco Giampaolo at Samp for two years.
