Official: Lyon sign Andersen

Olympique Lyonnais have officially signed defender Joachim Andersen from Sampdoria for an initial €24m.

The deal was confirmed in a statement on Lyon’s official website, which adds Andersen will be presented on Friday afternoon.

According to Samp owner Massimo Ferrero, his club will receive an extra €6m in bonuses.

The 23-year-old played 42 times in two seasons with the Blucerchiati, who paid just €1.5m to sign him from FC Twente in 2017.

However, he has yet to make his senior bow for Denmark.

Eusebio Di Francesco’s side appear to have already found his replacement in Julian Chabot.
