Reports in Italy claims Manchester United and Tottenham are monitoring Sampdoria starlet Joachim Andersen.

The defender has caught the eye for the Serie A side this season, featuring 13 times.

Jose Mourinho is desperate to bolster his backline, with Victor Lindelof and Chris Smalling currently his preferred defensive partnership.

Andersen has been linked with a £25million move to the Premier League – and United and Tottenham are at the front of the queue.

His value has rocketed during his 18 months in Italy following a £1.25m move from FC Twente.

United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward vetoed Mourinho’s plans to buy a central defender in the summer, and the Manchester giants have suffered a terrible start to the season as a result.

Victor Lindelof signed from Benfica for £31 million in 2017 and has struggled to make the breakthrough at the Theatre of Dreams.

The Sweden international was purchased as a hugely promising ball-playing defender, but Mourinho has shown little faith in his ability.

Eric Bailly also arrived to fanfare from Villarreal for £30 million. Mourinho lauded the Ivory Coast international as he signed on the dotted line, but once again, the United boss has failed to integrate a major signing.
