Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a summer move for Mikel Damsgaard.
Spurs are reportedly interested in the Sampdoria midfielder, who is presently representing Denmark at the European Championships.
Spurs are now without a manager, and as a consequence, they are losing out on prospective targets.
According to the report, Paulo Fonseca, who was close to acquiring the player until negotiations broke down, would have been interested in signing him. Previously, he worked with him at Roma.
Damsgaard is one of Sampdoria’s bankable assets. He has admirers across Europe, most notably Tottenham.
Massimo Ferrero, Sampdoria’s president, is demanding more than €20 million for the dynamic winger.
While he is well within Tottenham’s budget, the club’s management circus seems to have put an end to the transfer.
Damsgaard is impressing for Denmark at Euro 2020, and he may attract interest from other major European teams.
Tottenham’s position is, to put it mildly, a disaster.
On the one hand, the club is battling to find a manager with the appropriate profile, while a lengthy transfer drama involving Harry Kane looms.
Damsgaard scored twice and assisted on four occasions in 18 Serie A appearances last season.
The 20-year-old is a bright young prospect who would be an excellent addition to the team.
Spurs, on the other hand, must resolve their management issue as quickly as feasible.
