Former All Leeds TV presenter Joe Wainman has called for Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa to excite fans by beating a host of Premier League rivals to the signing of Mikkel Damsgaard.
The Whites have had a fairly quiet transfer window, with just two fresh faces heading to Elland Road ahead of the new season getting underway.
Would you like to see Damsgaard in the Premier League?
According to Italian media outlet Sport Mediaset, Denmark international Damsgaard is on Bielsa’s wishlist. The report suggests the Yorkshire club are just one of numerous Premier League sides tracking the creative midfielder, with Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa also showing an interest.
Damsgaard sprung into the limelight after enjoying an impressive Euro 2020, where he registered two goals and an assist as Denmark reached the semi-finals.
The 21-year-old joined Serie A side Sampdoria last year and made 37 appearances during his first season in Italy.
But JustJoe Football Show anchorman Wainman wants to see Damsgaard swap Sampdoria for Leeds.
He told The Transfer Tavern: “He would get us off our seats and we need a marquee signing, that’s for sure.
“Certain sections of the fanbase would ideally like a marquee signing and Damsgaard would be that.”
