According to a report from CalcioMercato, Inter Milan have opened talks with Sampdoria over a deal for Mikkel Damsgaard, who was heavily linked with a move to Tottenham during the summer transfer window.
Damgaard has come on leaps and bounds since his move to Italian football in the January of last year and the youngster’s stock rose ever further following his impressive displays at the European Championships this summer.
Spurs were credited with a major interest in the 21-year-old during the transfer window, with Sampdoria boss Roberto D’Aversa even admitting at the time that the player could leave the club before the window shut.
Some sources from Italy claimed that Tottenham were competing with Aston Villa, Leeds United and Napoli for the Denmark international, who was alleged to be valued by Sampdoria at €30m (£25.5m).
A transfer did not materialise for the 21-year-old, who ended up staying put at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium, but if CalcioMercato’s latest update is to be believed, the winger may not remain there for long.
The report explains that Sampdoria have already begun talks with Inter Milan, who are keen on snapping up Damsgaard.
However, it is revealed that Roberto D’Aversa’s side are not willing to lower their €35m (£29.8m) valuation of the winger, a price that is thought to be considered too excessive by Inter.
Spurs Web Opinion
Going by the speculation linking Spurs with the likes of Damsgaard, Adama Traore and Noni Madueke in the final few weeks of the transfer window, it seems evident that Partici and Nuno wanted to add one more wide player to the squad. So, I would not be surprised to see Tottenham reigniting their interest in Damsgaard when the window reopens in January.
