The 20-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Denmark. He has also represented the Denmark at various youth levels before going on to secure 6 senior caps for his country thus far.

The Spanish giants are looking to sign a winger and have identified the 20-year-old as potential transfer target.
Ronald Koeman has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe. The Barcelona manager has been impressed by his performances last season and could make a move this summer.
Koeman wants to continue to strengthening his squad so they’re able to compete both domestically and in the Champions League next season.

According to the report, “Barcelona are watching Sampdoria winger Mikkel Damsgaard. He scored a brilliant goal against Russia from distance for Denmark earlier in the Euros. His birthday gift will be to play in the quarter-finals against Netherlands or Czech Republic. AC Milan are interested as they may sell Rafael Leao, while Barca are also watching the youngster this month at Euro 2020.”
