Joachim Andersen Joins Crystal Palace On A Five Year Agreement From Lyon

Crystal Palace has finalized the five-year acquisition of defender Joachim Andersen from Lyon.
The 25-year-old centre-back spent last season on loan at Fulham in the Premier League before representing Denmark in the Euro 2020 semi-finals.
Andersen is the fourth acquisition for Palace under new manager Patrick Vieira, who took over from Roy Hodgson earlier this summer.
“I’m ecstatic to be joining Crystal Palace and to be playing in the best football league in the world,” Andersen said on the club’s website.
“The club’s administration and Patrick Vieira have assured me that they are aware of my abilities, that they believe in me, and that they want me to play a key role in the team.”
“From my conversations with Patrick, I have a very positive view of him, and I have heard nothing but fantastic things about the management, the club, and its future intentions.” Crystal Palace: What do they need to do this summer?
Crystal Palace’s scoring problems have resurfaced.
They only scored 41 goals in the Premier League, placing them 15th, and they are still looking for a regular goalscorer.
Wilfried Zaha – who is always a transfer target – and Christian Benteke both scored in double figures, but it’s a worry that Eberechi Eze, who scored four, was well behind his teammates.
Michy Batshuayi’s second loan stay at the club was a disappointment, while January acquisition Jean-Philippe Mateta has failed to make an impact.
Benteke, who has been in superb form, has signed a new deal with the club, but they may need to bring in a new striker.
Crystal Palace has been devastated by Eze’s long-term Achilles injury, but the signing of Reading’s Michael Olise could help ease the pressure.
