Reports suggest the Denmark international is being monitored by United, who are set to release Phil Jones in the summer.

They may also be concerned with replacing Eric Bailey, who may not sign a new deal at Old Trafford.

The 26-year-old’s existing contract expires in 2022.

Tottenham are also believed to be keeping an eye on Andersen as they may need to replace Toby Alderweireld, who has been linked with a move.

And Fulham are said to be interested in signing the defender on a permanent deal, although that will depend on whether they stay up.

The London side are currently 18th in the Premier League, three points behind Newcastle having played two games more.

They did not win a league game until Andersen made his debut in November – and he’s featured in every match since.

His impressive performances saw him nominated for the Premier League Player of the Month award in February, ultimately missing out to Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan.

United have also been linked with a move for Brighton defender Ben White, with Harry Maguire said to be a fan.

And they have reportedly opened talks with the agent of Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic.
