Leeds United are interested in a move for Denmark’s Euro 2020 star Mikkel Damsgaard but will have to pay more than €30m to get him.
That’s according to Il Bianconero, citing La Repubblica, who say Marcelo Bielsa’s side are one of several to show an interest in the 21-year-old.
Damsgaard currently plays for Sampdoria in Serie A and is considered one of the stars of the future after his impressive displays at the Euros this summer.
He was one of Denmark’s key players as they reached the semi-finals of the tournament, scoring twice, including one against England, and registering an assist in five games.
His performances didn’t go unnoticed, and a host of European clubs have been linked with his signature, including a couple in England.
Leeds are the latest to be added to that list, with it stated that they are ‘trying to get him to England’.
Sampdoria are not keen to sell if they don’t have to, with president Massimo Ferrero having insisted his prized asset is not for sale on several occasions.
His stance remains the same, and should he not receive an ‘adequate offer’, which would be anything higher than €30m, the Dane could end up staying for another year.
Leeds, then, will have to dig deep into their pockets if they want the winger, who also has the likes of Juventus, Atalanta and Tottenham chasing him.
