As is the case in every major tournament, football fans around the world are discovering rising stars.
Following his beautiful strike against Russia, Mikkel Damsgaard has made a name for himself on the European stage, and he continues to play an important role in Denmark’s remarkable journey to Euro 2020.
However, all Serie A greats already had the young Dane on their wishlist after his impressive season at Sampdoria.
According to Calciomercato, the 21-year-old is followed by Juventus, Milan and Inter, but the Blucerchiati are unwilling to offer a discount on his current valuation.
The report claims that any club that hopes to land Damsgaard this summer will have to shell out at least € 25million to convince Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero.
The youngster only completed his transfer to the Ligurian side last summer, which paid around 6million to secure his services from Nordsjaelland.
Therefore, the blue and white side would be on the verge of making a huge profit if the Bianconeri – or any of their rivals – eventually hit their asking price.
The Danish international is first and foremost a left winger, but can also play as an attacking midfielder, as well as a central midfielder.
Last season Damsgaard made 35 Serie A appearances, scoring two goals and providing four assists.
The youngster celebrated his 21st birthday in the best possible way on Saturday, as his national team secured his place in the European Championship semifinals with a 2-1 victory over the Czech Republic.
