Tottenham Hotspur are in talks over the possibility of signing Jannik Vestergaard with the defender in the final year of his contract with Southampton, according to The Times.
The talks are a result of their wish to sign two defenders this summer, and Vestergaard’s international teammate Joachim Andersen is another player considered, having spent 2020-21 on loan with Fulham. Anderson apparently has no intention of returning to his parent club, Olympique Lyon, where he is under contract until 2024. The final decision will be made by the newly appointed Spurs manager Nuno Espirito Santo, who prefers a three-man line at the back. It is a system which both Vestergaard and Andersen are familiar with, having played that way with Denmark at the ongoing Euros.
Vestergaard joined the Saints from Borussia Monchengladbach in 2018 for £18 million, and it is expected that Spurs would have to pay more than that to take him away from St. Mary’s. Meanwhile, Andersen is expected to cost around £25m this summer.
