Player description
An imposing defender who is known for his distribution, Andersen spent time with two of the biggest clubs in his homeland as a youngster – Copenhagen and Midtjylland – but it was in the Netherlands with Twente where he made his senior breakthrough.

He made his Eredivisie debut as an 18-year-old substitute in March 2015, and marked his first start with a goal two weeks later in a 2-2 draw away at Groningen.

Andersen was a regular for the Enschede side over the subsequent two seasons, and had amassed 49 appearances – and four goals – by the time he joined Sampdoria in the summer of 2017.

After helping his new club to a top half Serie A finish in his maiden campaign in Italy, Andersen established himself as one of the best young defenders in the division the following year, playing 32 times as the club finished ninth.

That form prompted Lyon to make him their record signing, agreeing a deal worth up to €30m to bring him to France.

His first season was an eventful one, with Lyon reaching the Semi-Finals of both the Champions League and the French Cup, with Andersen featuring 29 times across all competitions, often in the same backline as Kenny Tete.

Having represented Denmark at every age group, Andersen was handed his senior debut in October 2019.
