The Denmark international is currently on a season-long loan at Fulham, and his priority is to stay in Premier League following their relegation.
The Ligue 1 outfit have been approached by several European clubs are they look to sign the 24-year-old on a permanent deal when the transfer window opens.
Spurs looked at Andersen when he was at Sampdoria but did not move for him, and he ended up joining the Ligue 1 giants in the summer of 2019.
He has featured in 31 Premier League games, weighing in with a goal and an assist.
Tottenham are a fan of Andersen’s leadership qualities, and they would be hoping to pip Arsenal and co to his signature.
Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez have not been consistent this term, while Joe Rodon has recently fallen out of favour under interim manager Ryan Mason.
Toby Alderweireld is approaching the twilight of his career, and bringing in Andersen would help boost Spurs’ backline.
