According to a report from CalcioMercato, it could now take upwards of £35m to sign rumoured target Mikkel Damsgaard following his impressive displays in the European Championships for Denmark.

Damsgaard filled the creative vacuum left by Christian Eriksen’s absence in the Denmark side, with the 21-year-old’s displays being a crucial reason behind why the Danes were able to make it all the way to the semi-finals.

The attacking midfielder served another timely reminder of his quality in Wednesday’s semi-final as he netted a brilliant freekick to give his nation the lead before the Three Lions came back to win 2-1. 

The Sampdoria star was first linked with a move to Spurs back in February and the speculation linking him with a move to North London then re-emerged following Fabio Paratici’s appointment.

Sampdoria president, Massimo Ferrero has already warned clubs interested in Damsgaard that the player will not be sold unless the club’s asking price is met.

CalcioMercato now assert that on the back of the youngster’s showing in the Euros, it will take a bid of €40m (£34.2m) to even get the Serie A club to the negotiating table.

The report adds that several Premier League clubs have already held talks with the player’s agent, with England now looking like Damsgaard’s most likely destination.

Spurs Web Opinion 

I suspect Paratici’s main reason for pursuing Damsgaard would have been the opportunity to purchase a potential gem on a cut-price deal before he explodes at the top level.

However, I doubt whether Spurs would still be interested in the 21-year-old now that his price has inflated after his performances in the Euro 2020.
