Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly submitted an offer of around £17m to Sampdoria for Euro 2020 star, Mikkel Damsgaard (Repubblica as relayed by Calcio Mercato).

The youngster set the tournament alight this summer for Denmark, including a wonderful free-kick that put his side ahead against England in the semi-finals.

Damsgaard had the tough task of coming in to replace Christian Eriksen after the Dane’s collapse against Finland.

While Spurs have tabled their first offer for the Serie A attacker, it is said that Sampdoria value the player at around £34m, half of what Tottenham have stumped up.

Therefore, Spurs will likely have to climb in order to appease the Italian outfit this summer.

Damsgaard is reportedly being eyed by Roma, now led by former Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho, with the Sampdoria president even offering his player to The Special One.

Last season, Damsgaard scored twice and assisted four in 35 Serie A appearances for Sampdoria (TransferMarkt).

Spurs Web Opinion:

Knowing Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici, they are probably willing to climb to around £25m but wanted to lowball their first offer to see what Sampdoria said. This would be a huge signing for Spurs if they can pull it off.
