According to the British news outlet, Daily Mirror, Manchester United have set their sights on the highly-rated Sampdoria defender Joachim Andersen.
The Red Devils have been struggling with their defensive performance since the start of the season, having managed to keep a clean sheet just once in the Premier League so far.
Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof are both underperforming this year, which is why Jose Mourinho desperately wants to land a reliable centre-back in the upcoming transfer session.
Although there were some talks about potential interest in Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly, Aurelio De Laurentiis’ €75 million asking price seems to have scared off the Premier League giants.
Now, the most successful English club look to secure the services of the 22-year-old Danish defender, who has been impressive with Sampdoria this season.
The former Twente man has registered eleven top-flight outings under Marco Giampaolo this year, having scored one goal in the process.
However, Andersen won’t come cheap as the Blucerchiati slapped a €30 price tag on their jewel. Moreover, the Red Devils will probably have to wait until the summer to finalize the deal considering Sampdoria have no intention of allowing the transfer in January whatsoever.
