Tottenham are quickly overhauling their squad under new manager Enze Postecoglou. First, they added Guglielmo Vicario, 26, to bolster their goalkeeping and James Maddison, 27, to add creativity to their midfield. Wing forward Manor Solomon is also a free agent.
The defense is also being bolstered. Wolfsburg’s Micky van der Vaan (22) is on the verge of signing. The Dutchman has been described as the next Virgil van Dijk. He’s incredibly athletic and has the ability to pass with his left foot, which could help with the buildup and covering the back four, two of the weakest areas of Spurs’ defense.
It doesn’t end there. Spurs have another defender on their list. “Tottenham are interested in signing Joachim Andersen, 27, from Crystal Palace,” The Sun 온라인카지노 reported on Friday.
Andersen is a Danish international who played for Sampdoria (Italy) and Olympique Lyonnais (France) before joining Palace in the 2021-22 season. Andersen’s strengths lie in his delivery at 6-foot-2. He uses his height to his advantage in defense, but he also looks to score with headers from set pieces such as corners and free kicks.
Along with his man-marking and ability, Andersen is an excellent long passer. His side-to-side kicks from the back are very accurate, making him a key part of Palace’s buildup at the back. He played 34 league games in his first season and 32 this season, leading the defense.
The key is the transfer fee. “Palace want £50 million ($83 million) for Andersen. That’s not cheap for Tottenham.” In addition to Tottenham, Newcastle are also interested in Andersen, so there will be competition for his signature.
