Joachim Andersen TEAMtalk

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

AC Milan are also in the running for the 23-year-old Anderson as they close in on Samp coach Marco Giampaolo.

Giampaolo is seemingly set to leave the Genoa-based club for the San Siro and he is apparently keen on taking Andersen with him, and the latter certainly did nothing to dispel those rumours this week.

“I haven’t read much in media about Giampaolo leaving, but I’m happy for him,” he told EkstraBladet.

“I’m also a little disappointed as he’s leaving. If I dream of joining him? I can’t respond to that and I don’t know my future, but Milan is a great club.”

Arsenal, Tottenham and United 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 the player’s price.

The report claims that Samp have now placed a €35million valuation on Andersen, who made 32 Serie A appearances under Giampaolo last season, filling the void left by Milan Skriniar.

Juventus, Roma and Napoli have also been credited with interest in Andersen, but the source claim Manchester United have “made contact” with the player as they look to get their transfer business started before July 1.
