Roma join Arsenal in the race to sign Andersen
Roma have joined Arsenal in the race to sign Joachim Andersen from Sampdoria, according to claims from Calciomercato.
The Gunners were heavily linked with a swoop for the central defender earlier on in October, with the club believed to be keen on adding to their current crop of defensive options in the near future.
However, it seems the race to recruit the Sampdoria star is heating up, with Roma the latest team to be mentioned as potential suitors.
Interest from Serie A is said by Calciomercato to be building, as Andersen continues to shine in the heart of Sampdoria’s defence.
Arsenal have started the season in fine form and are currently enjoying a nine-game winning streak. Despite this, question marks have been raised over their ability to successfully shut teams out.
Andersen appears to be a target for the club heading into the January transfer window, but Calciomercato have insisted that the competition for the defender’s signature will be as fierce as ever.
