Having taken Serie A by storm, Mikel Damsgaard has caught the eye of many scouts.

Among those are Tottenham Hotspur’s, with the Premier League club following the young Dane’s progress with great attention.

They’ve been labelled the favourites a couple of times, with them either ‘crazy’ about him or said to be ‘more than ever in pole position’ to secure his signature from Sampdoria.

This will come at a price, of course, with Claudio Ranieri’s side keen to make at least €20m from a transfer; a fee hardly excessive, even for Daniel Levy.

As for what the player wants in all this, he’s open to pretty much anything, as he revealed in an interview with Il Secolo XIX, relayed by Club Doria 46.

Asked about his future, he said: “If the Sampdoria fans want to ‘tie me up for life’, I’m very proud, but with only two goals scored, I didn’t do much to deserve it. Will I stay a couple of years? Sure, why not? But then, in life, you never know, and in football, it depends on performance, for good but also for bad”.

We’ll have to wait and see what comes from this Tottenham interest in the player, but with an attack that could need replenishing depending on what happens with the likes of Gareth Bale, signing a young and exciting Dane could be a good move.

It worked rather well last time, did it not?
