Tottenham Hotspur could face competition from AC Milan for Sampdoria winger Mikkel Damsgaard this summer, according to Corriere dello Sport.

Damsgaard has featured in all four of Denmark’s group stage games, starting the last three against Belgium, Russia and Wales, having scored a stunning goal in the group stage.

His goal saw Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero suggest that he would sell the player for the right price, claiming he was worth around £25million following his efforts at Euro 2020, but that the price would increase if he scored again during the tournament (Il Secolo XIX).

AC Milan are now said to be keen on taking the 20-year-old off the hands of Sampdoria and are expected to put an offer forward shortly.

The Danish midfielder only joined Sampdoria last summer for a fee of just over £5million from Nordsjaelland (Daily Mail).

He was first linked with a move to Spurs in February and speculation has appeared once more following the appointment of Fabio Paratici (SampNews24).

Damsgaard is likely to be highly coveted this summer following his impressive displays for Denmark and a bidding war could ensue.  At 20, he is still a raw talent and would prefer to see the club focus on signing a new central defender and a holding midfielder.
