Lyon are reported to have launched a £16million bid to sign defender Joachim Andersen from Italian side Sampdoria.

The Denmark international looks as though he will not be with Samp for much longer as a host of clubs, including Arsenal and Tottenham, chase his signature.

Reports now claim that Lyon have stolen a march on the Premier League duo by making the bid.

However it falls well below the Blucerchiati’s valuation and is sure to be rejected.

Andersen is not sure who he will join just yet, but he will not drag the decision out and hopes to make an announcement sooner rather than later.

‘It could be time for me to further my career.

I have loved my time in Sampdoria but maybe it’s time to move on to develop further,’ he said.

‘There are a number of interesting clubs from Europe’s biggest leagues who are discussing with my agent and I’ll be making a decision shortly together with my family and my agent.

‘I have dreams of playing in the biggest clubs in the world and the biggest leagues in the world.’
