Tottenham are ‘in the front row’ of clubs keeping an eye on Sampdoria star Mikkel Damsgaard after his impressive performances in the summer.

The Danish youngster was one of the stars of his side’s run to the semi-finals of the European Championship, with two goals and an assist, including a superb strike against England, launching him into the limelight.

Several sides were thought to be keen on him, particularly Tottenham, who were named as suitors throughout the summer transfer window.

That came courtesy of new director of football, Fabio Paratici, who is more than aware of the player and his talents given his time working at Juventus.

Ultimately a move never happened as Spurs spent elsewhere, but it seems the interest is still there.

Tuttosport report on Damsgaard today and expain that he’s in the sights of Juventus, who will get a chance to get a good look at him when they take on Sampdoria on Sunday.

They are not the only ones in Italy who are keen on him, with Inter Milan and AC Milan also ‘in the front row’ when it comes to sides in Italy.

That is where Tottenham come into it, with it stated they are side from ‘abroad’ who are keeping a close eye on Damsgaard’s development.

If they do wish to sign him, they’ll need to convince Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero, who wants at least €30m before he would consider a sale.

Such an offer never arrived in the summer, so he’s there for now, but it seems the interest is still there, with Sunday’s clash against Juventus another opportunity for him to make a mark.
