Done deal: Andersen to Lyon

Olympique Lyonnais have agreed terms a transfer for Sampdoria defender Joachim Andersen at a cost of €25m plus €5m in add-ons.

According to Sky Sport Italia transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, the deal is done and the final details were worked out this evening.

The Denmark international is expected to undergo a medical over the next 48 hours.

A 23-year-old centre-back, Andersen had also been heavily linked with Inter, Milan, Roma, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.

Lyon won out with an offer worth €25m plus another €5m in performance-related bonuses.

It’s an extraordinary profit margin for Samp, who only purchased Andersen from FC Twente in 2017 for €1.5m.
