Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero has claimed that clubs interested in rumoured Tottenham target Mikkel Damsgaard will have to cough up at least €30m (£25.7m) for the winger this summer. 

Damsgaard’s reputation has blossomed since his move to Luigi Ferraris Stadium in January of last year and the winger has taken his impressive club form into international football, shining in Denmark’s European Championship campaign so far.

The youngster demonstrated last week exactly why he is so highly thought of by curling a brilliant effort into the top corner in the Danes’ 4-1 win over Russia.

The 21-year-old was first linked with a move to Spurs back in February and the speculation linking the Dane with a move to North London has reemerged following Fabio Paratici’s appointment.

Previous reports indicated that the Italian outfit valued Damsgaard at around €20m (£17m) but Ferrero insisted that the player’s value has gone up considerably in light of his performances at the Euros.

The Serie A club’s president told Secolo XIX (as relayed by Calciomercato): “Have you seen that Damsgaard goal? 

“I’ll tell you its right price, today at least 30 million. But if he scores again he will get to 40.”

It is not only Damsgaard but also a number of other players whose value will be affected by their performances in the Euros. That is why I do not expect the club to settle on their first-choice targets for different positions until the tournament concludes.
