Liverpool are still reportedly interested in signing Sampdoria and Denmark midfielder Mikkel Damsgaard before the transfer window closes.
The Lowdown: Damsgaard linked with Liverpool move
The 21-year-old made a name for himself at Euro 2020, helping Denmark reach the semi-finals without key man Christian Eriksen, scoring twice and assisting once in the tournament.
Damsgaard has been linked with a move to Liverpool this summer, as he potentially looks for a bigger challenge away from Sampdoria.
The Latest: Another update emerges
It appears as though the Reds’ interest in the attacking midfielder hasn’t gone away, with La Repubblica [via Sport Witness] reporting that they are ‘eligible candidates’ to sign him, along with Leeds United.
Damsgaard’s current Sampdoria deal doesn’t expire until 2024, however, so a sizeable bid may be needed to prise him away.
The Verdict: Much-needed addition?
Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea was further proof that Liverpool lack attacking options from the substitutes’ bench, with Jurgen Klopp’s men running out of steam against ten men – the manager opted to bring on left-back Kostas Tsimikas when chasing a goal.
Damsgaard could be a player who comes in and provides that, producing guile in attacking areas and possessing the versatility to thrive centrally and out wide.
Admittedly, he remains relatively unproven, despite his performances at the Euros, but he could thrive working under Klopp and may be seen as a long-term investment.
