Reported Leeds United, West Ham and Tottenham Hotspur target Mikkel Damsgaard loves life at Sampdoria and isn’t pushing for a move away from the Serie A outfit, agent Jens Orgaard Pedersen has told Calciomercato.
Since the turn of the year, it feels like almost every club in the Premier League has been linked with the jet-heeled Dane at some point or another.
And with good reason.
One of the breakthrough stars of 2021, Damsgaard has taken Italian football by storm with his searing pace and impressive end product, exploding on to the scene with a magical assist against table-topping Inter Milan.
The 20-year-old also made his mark on the international stage, scoring twice in an 8-0 thrashing of Moldova in World Cup qualifying.
And, just 14 months after swapping Nordsjaelland for Sampdoria, Damsgaard is happy and settled on the banks of the Riviera.
Living out of a suitcase, it seems, holds little appeal for a player putting down roots at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris.
“Do Inter and Juventus like him? I prefer not to comment on the market rumours,” his agent explains.
“At the moment I can only say Mikkel is happy at Sampdoria and is totally focused on his adventure in Genoa.”
That’s unlikely to stop the speculation from raging, however.
In February, The Star reported Southampton, Leeds, West Ham and Jose Mourinho’s Spurs have expressed interest in the £18 million-rated winger.
Crystal Palace, meanwhile, apparently see Damsgaard as the ideal addition to a squad that, following an anticipated summer overhaul, could soon be chock full of exciting young talent (TMW).
