Sampdoria will demand ‘at least £30 million’ for reported Leeds United, Tottenham and West Ham target Mikkel Damsgaard after his Euro 2020 heroics, president Massimo Ferrero told Il Secolo XIX, via Calciomercato.  

As the sprightly little winger turned on a sixpence and curled a gorgeous 25-yard shot into the top corner during Denmark’s dramatic 4-1 victory over Russia on Monday, his price-tag doubled in a split second. 

When the rumours emerged linking Damsgaard with a move to the Premier League two months ago, it was expected that Sampdoria would ask for somewhere in the region of £15 million for a man who allegedly caught the eye of Leeds, Leicester, Tottenham, West Ham, Crystal Palace and more.

Now, after rising to prominence on the international stage and putting forward a genuine Goal of the Tournament contender to rival that of Patrik Schick and Luka Modric, you can forget about paying £15 million. 

Should the Serie A sensation repeat the trick against Wales in the round-of-16, well, it’s probably best to let Ferrero explain Sampdoria’s stance. 

Will Mikkel Damsgaard be Leeds United’s new record signing?

“Did you see that Damsgaard goal? I’ll tell you his fair price, today at least 30 million,” said one of the maddest owners in a league chock-full of ‘characters’. 

“But if he scores again he will reach 40… ”

Damgaard only joined Sampdoria 16 months ago from Danish outfit Nordsjaelland. 

But, after bursting onto the scene in Italy, the Blucerchiati are almost certain to make a massive profit on a player who set them back just £6 million.  

A £30 million fee would see Damsgaard, who former Samp boss Claudio Ranieri describes as an enfant prodigeereplace Rodrigo Moreno as Leeds’ all-time record signing. 

According to SampNews24, newly-appointed sporting director Fabio Paratici is driving Tottenham’s interest in the jet-heeled youngster, having watched Damsgaard closely during his time in the Juventus boardroom.
