‘A big offer’ – Club president sends warning about reported Spurs target

Sampdoria president, Massimo Ferrero, has warned that clubs interested in rumoured Tottenham target Mikkel Damsgaard would need to spend big if they want to sign the winger this summer.

Damsgaard has impressed since moving to Sampdoria in January of last year but it was his performances in the European Championships that shot him to the limelight.

The winger, who once again demonstrated his quality by curling in a beautiful freekick in Denmark’s semi-final loss to England on Wednesday, was first linked with a move to Spurs back in February.

The speculation linking him with a move to North London then re-emerged following Fabio Paratici’s appointment.

Reports from Italy have also backed AC Milan to challenge Tottenham for the 21-year-old’s signature, with the Rossoneri said to have already made a player plus cash offer for the Sampdoria star.

However, Ferrero has now insisted that the Serie A club would not be willing to cash in on Damsgaard unless their asking price is met.

The Sampdoria president told Gazzetta dello Sport (via Fabrizio Romano): “Damsgaard won’t be for sale this summer… unless there’s a big offer that can excite us.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

Sampdoria’s asking price for Damsgaard is likely to have doubled on the back of his impressive showing in the Euros. There will likely also be a lot more competition for his signature than there was a few weeks ago. Since Tottenham tend not to get involved in bidding wars, I do not expect us to follow through with our interest in the Dane.
