Back at OL after a loan in England, Joachim Andersen could definitely leave Lyon this summer. The Danish defender is expected to continue his career in the Premier League, where he excelled during the last season.
OL Transfer : Joachim Andersen towards the exit this summer ?
Recruited for 24 million euros (excluding bonuses) in 2019, Joachim Andersen has not managed to justify the amount of his transfer to Olympique Lyonnais. After a disappointing 2019/2020 financial year, the central defender left the OL on loan for Fulham. Despite the relegation of the London club in Championship, the 25-year-old player was one of the few satisfactions of the Cottagers. The Dane, who has 8 caps, has made a comeback. He was a regular starter for the English club and even wore the captain’s armband on several occasions. After his loan, he should not return to Lyon this summer, especially since the Gones have recruited Damien Da Silva. In view of his performances during the past season and his good performance with Denmark at Euro 2020, he is set to stay in England.
Andersen promised to a Premier League great?
Foot Mercato assures that Manchester United is interested in Joachim Andersen. The Red Devils are looking for a new central defender this summer. The name of Raphael Varane is often associated with the vice-champion of England. But the United management could try a less expensive move with the OL player. The latter played 30 games in the Premier League last season for a goal and an assist. Enough to catch the eye of United, who will have to deal with competition from Londoners Tottenham. With this big competition, Lyon could pocket a big check by selling this element this summer. Still under contract until 2024, his market value is estimated at 22 million euros on Transfermarkt.
