'Interest remains strong' — Spurs reportedly eye move for €20m winger – originally posted on Sportslens.com
Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in signing Mikel Damsgaard this summer.
According to reports from Club Doria, Spurs are eyeing the Sampdoria midfielder who is currently playing in the European championships for Denmark.
Spurs are without a manager at the moment, and they are missing out on potential targets as a result of that.
The report claims that Paulo Fonseca, who was about to join Spurs and only the talks broke off in the final stage, would have been keen on signing the player. He previously worked with him at AS Roma.
Damsgaard is one of the bankable assets for Sampdoria. He has suitors in Europe, especially Tottenham. In fact, the website claims that Spurs retain a ‘strong interest’ in the player.
Sampdoria chief Massimo Ferrero is asking for more than €20m for the exciting winger. While he is well within Tottenham’s budget, the managerial circus at the club means the move appears to be off.
Damsgaard is playing well for Denmark in Euro 2020, and he could draw attention from other big European clubs.
Frankly, Tottenham’s situation is a mess.
On one hand, the club is struggling to appoint the right profile of manager, while a long transfer saga regarding Harry Kane awaits.
Damsgaard scored two goals and provided four assists in 18 Serie A starts last season.
The 20-year-old is an exciting young talent, and he would be a fantastic addition for the club. But, Spurs must sort out their managerial situation at the earliest.
