Repubblica: Milan told to pay €35m to land Sampdoria star Andersen

By Oliver Fisher -

Sampdoria have set their price for defender Joachim Andersen amid links with AC Milan and Arsenal, a report claims.

Links between the Rossoneri and Andersen have intensified in recent days given Marco Giampaolo’s imminent appointment as the club’s next head coach.

Giampaolo’s system requires two ball-playing centre-backs, which you can read more about in our tactical insight on Giampaolo here, and he is believed to be keen on bringing the Denmark international with him from Sampdoria to the San Siro.

Arsenal are also believed to be interested though and could provide strong competition, and La Repubblica suggest that the Blucerchiati are using interest to drive up his price.

They claim that Samp have now placed a €35m valuation on the 23-year-old, who made 32 Serie A appearances under Marco Giampaolo last season, filling the void left by Milan Skriniar.

Juventus, Roma and Napoli have also been credited with interest in Andersen, while Premier League duo Spurs and Manchester United are keen, with the latter having ‘made contact’.
