Tottenham are set to sit down with the representatives of Joachim Andersen in the next few weeks to discuss a potential transfer this summer. The Danish centre-back has made his way onto Spurs' summer shortlist and the club's recruitment team is now set to begin work on a deal.

Potentially problematically for Tottenham, they are not the only interested party though.

Andersen has been a huge success since arriving on loan at Craven Cottage last summer and has even worn the captain's armband for Scott Parker's side.

The 24-year-old has got his career back on track following a disappointing debut season in Ligue 1 with Lyon last term, following his £25million move from Sampdoria.

Manchester United are also reportedly keeping tabs on the defender, while Fulham would look to make the loan move permanent should they secure Premier League safety.

Express Sport understands that Spurs have now made their move to win the race for Andersen, by penciling in a meeting with his representatives.
