​Fulham face Man Utd, Tottenham challenge as Lyon name price for Andersen

Fulham are facing a battle to sign centre-back Joachim Andersen permanently from Lyon.

The likes of Manchester United and Tottenham also have an interest in the player, per Metro.

The Dane arrived on a season long loan deal in the summer and has been a regular in Scott Parker's team.

Andersen has helped Fulham into a position where they may avoid relegation, depending on results in the last stage of the season.

Lyon will accept around £25 million for the 24-year-old, as the club is in financial difficulty due to COVID-19 lockdowns.

Fulham will have to fend off interest to secure the player, and a deal is only possible if they avoid relegation to the Championship.
