Manchester United have joined rivals Arsenal in the race to sign Sampdoria star defender Joachim Andersen.
The United scouts have been keeping a close watch recently on the star player, according to reports by La Repubblica.
The report claims that Jose Mourinho has been convinced about the prospect of signing the player, with interest beginning to rise.
Other European clubs like Arsenal, Inter Milan and Juventus have all been heavily linked with Andersen in recent weeks.
Manchester United have suffered a heavy blow in most of their recent outings as they have failed to keep a clean sheet but rather come from behind to win some of their matches.
Joachim Anderson is already drawing attentions in the Serie A and there is all indication that a bidding war will commence for his services come January or in the next summer transfer window.
