Tottenham Hotspur reportedly identify Joachim Andersen as their number one choice to replace Toby Alderweireld should the Belgian leave this summer.

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly identified Sampdoria defender Joachim Andersen as a potential replacement for Toby Alderweireld.

Spurs are looking for defensive cover after triggering an option in Alderweireld's contract which extends his stay at the club by another year, but also lowers his release clause to just £25m this summer.

The likes of Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain have been linked with moves for the Belgian, and with no sign of fresh terms being agreed as things stand, Tottenham are considering their options.

The Independent reports that Andersen is at the top of their list of targets to replace Alderweireld, with the 22-year-old having impressed with his performances for Sampdoria and Denmark of late.

Manchester United have also been credited with an interest in the centre-back before, but are expected to target other options over the next two transfer windows.

Spurs are hopeful that Andersen will be available for around £35m this summer.
