Following a few months of rumours, it looks like Tottenham Hotspur are finally moving for the signing of Sampdoria winger Mikkel Damsgaard.
A story from Italian newspaper La Repubblica (via Tutto Mercato Web) today claims that the London side have ‘accelerated’ in their pursuit for the 21-year-old.
It’s said Spurs ‘overtaken all the rivals’ for the transfer and Fabio Paratici is now ‘ready to offer’ €25m for the player.
Tutto Mercato Web recalls that Damsgaard had already been followed by Tottenham in the time José Mourinho was in charge of the club, and the player is now ‘back on top of their list’.
It isn’t said what would be Sampdoria’s stance regarding this offer, but we must recall that last month, the club chairman Massimo Ferrero claimed that Damsgaard could soon be worth €50m.
So in case he really believes that, Spurs’ bid may not be enough.
Still, the London side have been linked to the player since March, and despite the president’s quotes, the Italian media has already claimed that a bid of just over €20m could do the trick.
