Arsenal and West Ham United are keen on signing Fulham defender Joachim Andersen.

The 24-year-old has been outstanding for the London club this season and his parent club Lyon are thought to be open to selling him permanently.

The French outfit are cash-strapped due to the coronavirus crisis, and the centre-back is valued at around £20 million.

According to the Mirror, David Moyes is keen to strengthen his back four with West Ham on track to qualify for Europe next season.

Craig Dawson and Angelo Ogbonna are 30 and 32 respectively, leaving the Hammers needing to acquire younger defensive options.

Andersen has already adapted to the Premier League and could make an immediate impact for the London club.

Meanwhile, the Gunners are thought to be looking at a potential replacement for David Luiz, with the Brazilian’s contract set to expire this summer.

The Danish defender could form a reliable partnership alongside Gabriel. The Gunners will be hoping to fend off the competition for his services.

The reported £20 million valuation is reasonable in today’s market, and his performances in the Premier League show that he could be a bargain at that price.
