The latest reports in England suggest that Liverpool have joined Tottenham in race for Sampdoria winger Mikkel Damsgaard.
The 21-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
Sampdoria spent 6.75 million euros to sign the Denmark international from Nordsjælland in 2020. The 21-year-old has three years left on his current contract which expires in 2024.
In 39 appearances for Sampdoria, Damsgaard has managed to score two goals, and create four goals for his teammates.
The 21-year-old is considered to be one of the best wingers in Denmark. Damsgaard has also left his mark at the international stage after netting four goals in 8 senior appearances for the Denmark national team.
His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.
Liverpool are looking to sign a winger and have identified the 21-year-old as potential transfer target. The Reds have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
Jürgen Klopp is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this summer.
The Denmark international will offer the Liverpool boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.
According to the report, “Liverpool are watching Sampdoria winger Mikkel Damsgaard. Il Secolo XIX says Liverpool scouts were spotted watching Damsgaard in action during Sampdoria’s match against AC Milan on Monday night. Damsgaard shot to stardom at Euro 2020 with Denmark leading to links with a move to the Premier League. Liverpool are interested in the Dane, who operated on the left wing against Milan. The report goes on to claim that the Reds are waiting for their rivals like Tottenham to make a move, ‘before attempting the decisive assault on the player’.”
