Damsgaard can play multiple roles across the midfield and has the potential to develop into a top-class player in future.
He has a contract with Sampdoria until 2024, and the club will demand a premium for his services if Tottenham or Milan come calling the summer.
The Londoners need to add more creativity to their attack, and Damsgaard could be the ideal partner for Harry Kane and Heung-min Son next season.
The Premier League club will be eager to fend off the competition from Milan and secure the youngster’s services this summer.
