Olympique Lyonnais have confirmed that Sampdoria defender Joachim Andersen will join the club.
Lyon have agreed a €30m deal for Andersen, and President Jean-Michel Aulas revealed the Dane was close to signing on the dotted line.
“Andersen arrived on a private plane with his family,” Aulas said at a Press conference.
“The objective was to bring him here along with other players. Our transfer campaign hasn’t finished yet, we’ll do other deals.
Sporting director Juninho Pernambucano added: “Andersen is a fantastic player.
“He has great tactical and technical skills, which will help us a lot. We hope to announce him soon.”
