According to a report by Italian newspaper La Republicca (via Sport Witness), Tottenham Hotspur are ‘preparing an offer’ to sign Sampdoria sensation Mikkel Damsgaard – with managing director Fabio Paratici firmly on his case.
The Lowdown: Spurs in Damsgaard chase?
Numerous reports have backed Tottenham’s interest in the Denmark international over this last month.
La Repubblica (via TUTTOmercatoWEB) claimed last month that Spurs were in pole position to sign Damsgaard ahead of all other competitors and were ready to lodge a €25 million (£21.2m) offer.
Since then, claims in the English media have backed Tottenham’s interest as The Evening Standard report they have him on their radar.
The Latest: Spurs ‘preparing’ Damsgaard offer…
Bringing another update similar to last month’s, La Repubblica (via Sport Witness) believe Tottenham are now ‘preparing an offer’ to sign Damsgaard.
It is also believed that Paratici is personally on his case and orchestrating a move for Denmark’s rising star.
While Tottenham face competition from Premier League rivals Leeds United, this report states that Nuno Espirito Santo and the Lilywhites are ‘out in front’.
The Verdict: Get it done…
If ever Spurs wanted a perfect replacement for ex-star Christian Eriksen, they should look no further than Damsgaard.
The attacking midfield player summed up his talent with a stunning Euro 2020 semi-final free kick against England at Wembley and has attracted huge praise from pundits.
His former youth coach, Kasper Kurland, has detailed the ‘gigantic buzz’ around Damsgaard back in Denmark (inews), while Serie A expert Conor Clancy likened the 21-year-old to Eriksen – calling him a ‘very exciting’ player (This is Futbol).
If Tottenham can get him over the line, we believe he would be a very shrewd purchase.
