According to FC Inter News, Tottenham Hotspur have sent scouts to Italy to keep tabs on Sampdoria winger, Mikkel Damsgaard.

Damsgaard has out-performed expectations since arriving from Nordsjaelland during January of last year and has established himself as a key player for Sampdoria this campaign.

It was reported back in February that Tottenham and Juventus were both ‘crazy’ about the tricky wide man and have already enquired about his availability.

ClubDoria46 revealed a few weeks ago that Sampdoria value the 20-year-old at €20m (£17.1m).

However, if FC Inter News are to be believed, Spurs could face a lot of competition for Damsgaard’s signature in this summer’s transfer window.

The report reveals that Inter and Juventus are both tracking the Denmark international’s progress, with representatives from both clubs spotted watching him in action during Sampdoria’s 2-0 loss to Napoli last Sunday.

It is claimed that Tottenham and Leicester City have also sent scouts to keep an eye on the youngster.

The report goes on to add that Sampdoria are not in a hurry to sell the Dane in the summer transfer window and would prefer to see him continue his development at the Luigi Ferraris Stadium for another season before cashing in on him.

Spurs Web Opinion 

Given Tottenham’s financial issues due to the pandemic, our ability to scout promising youngsters before they become break-out stars is more vital than ever this summer.

We need to sign two or three more top-class players to narrow the gap with the teams at the summit of the league table but we certainly are not in a position to pay big money for established stars.  

Our best chance of getting back to where we were two or three years ago, is to find potential gems like Dele Alli on a cut-price deal. Damsgaard fits that profile but the problem with making those type of signings is that their probability of becoming a success is relatively low as we have found out with the likes of Jack Clarke and Ryan Sessegnon.
