According to vivoperlei.calciomercato.com, Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa are in ‘the first place’ to sign Sampdoria sensation Mikkel Damsgaard as both clubs emerge as frontrunners for his signature.
The Lowdown: Spurs turn to Damsgaard?
Following the acquisition of defender Cristian Romero from Atalanta, it has been reported that Spurs will now turn their attention to the attacking positions.
A report by The Evening Standard claimed that Spurs now have eyes for Damsgaard in particular, along with former Lilywhites prodigy Noni Madueke.
Meanwhile, reports in Italy suggest that Tottenham’s managing director Fabio Paratici is preparing an offer for the Sampdoria player this summer (La Repubblica via Sport Witness).
The Latest: Spurs and Villa ‘in the first place’…
Now, as per vivoperlei.calciomercato.com, Spurs and Villa are both ‘in the first place’ to sign Damsgaard, with the Premier League duo emerging as frontrunners in the race for the 21-year-old.
It is claimed that the fate of Damsgaard ‘will be decided’ in the final few days of the transfer window, and Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero has indirectly told interested clubs what they’ll need to pay to land the youngster.
Indeed, if Paratici is serious about signing the Denmark international for Spurs manager Nuno Espirito Santo, he will have to fork out around €30m to €35m (£25.5m-£29.7m).
The Verdict: Get it done…
For a maximum fee of £29.7m, Spurs could land themselves one of the most promising attacking talents in world football.
Lauded as a ‘magical’ player by TV 2 SPORT’s football expert Martin Mikkelsen, Damsgaard’s phenomenal free-kick against England at Wembley in the Euro 2020 semi-finals could just be a glimpse into his phenomenal talent.
He has also been likened to former Spurs star Christian Eriksen by Italian football expert Conor Clancy (This is Futbol), so we advise Paratici to consider a move for the playmaker at the very least.
