Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham are all interested in Lyon defender Joachim Andersen, according to reports in the English media.
The Danish international impressed during a loan spell with Fulham last season and he is expected to be sold for a relatively modest sum this summer.
Andersen may have put in some good performances at Craven Cottage but it seems Gunners fans on Twitter are not particularly happy that the London club are being linked with the 25-year-old:
Still linking with amateur players.

If we are signing a CB it should be one with world class potential or one who is world class. No point in signing Anderson.

Arsenal are looking to replace David Luiz, with the Brazilian leaving the Emirates on a free transfer at the end of the month. Sevilla’s Jules Kounde is said to be high on the club’s list of targets but his asking price, and the fact that he is looking to play in the Champions League, mean he is unlikely to be interested in the move.
Andersen would, on the other hand, be open to the switch but there are question marks over whether he’d be an upgrade on the Gunners’ four current centre-halves: Rob Holding, William Saliba, Gabriel and Pablo Mari.
