Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur could compete for the signature of Lyon defender Joachim Andersen at the end of the season.

The Dane joined Fulham on a season-long loan last summer, and he has impressed for them despite their struggles in the Premier League.

With the Cottagers on the cusp of relegation, he is unlikely to join them on a permanent basis, and may look for a fresh challenge.

According to The Mirror, the Gunners and Spurs are among the leading contenders to sign the centre-back, who could cost £25m.

The Gunners consider Andersen as a potential replacement for David Luiz, whose contract expires at the end of the campaign.

Aside from the duo, West Ham United and Manchester United have also been linked with the former Sampdoria man.

He has more than three years on his contract with Lyon. It is claimed that the French club would welcome him back if he wishes.

Lyon are currently fourth in Ligue 1, but only five points behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain with a game in hand.
