Manchester United have joined Arsenal in the race to sign Sampdoria defender Joachim Andersen.

 According to La Repubblica, as cited on Calciomercato, Manchester United scouts have been keeping a close eye on the player recently.

The report claims that Jose Mourinho has been convinced about the possibility of signing the player, with interest beginning to rise.

The Danish defender is catching the eye in Serie A and looks certain to start a bidding war for his services either in January or in the next summer window.

Mourinho has been keen to add another central defender to his ranks for some time having missed out on key targets during the previous window.

Any potential deal to sign the Sampdoria star is set to cost around €30 million, but with the rising interest, that fee is likely to rise.
