Spurs consider huge £ 30million upgrade from Lucas Moura
Tottenham Hotspur have learned exactly how much it would cost to land Mikkel Damsgaard, the summer transfer target mentioned …
What is the word?
“Did you see that Damsgaard goal? I will tell you [his] fair price, today at least 30 million but if he scores again it will reach 40, ”Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero told Italian newspaper Il Secolo XIX (via Calciomercato).
Spurs have been steadily tied to the 20-year-old gem over the past few months and, last week, Club Doria 46 reported that their interest was ‘strong’, although North Londoners face competition from Premier League rivals West Ham and Leeds.
Would Damsgaard be an improvement over Moura?
Yes, sign it!
No way, next!
If the Danish international continues to excel at Euro 2020, this asking price could really increase, as the president of his club says.
Damsgaard has become a potential future Danish star in the absence of former Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen. His Wonderstrike sparked a 4-1 rout against Russia to seal their place in the round of 16 of the competition.
The Sampdoria striker received the ball from current Spurs midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and, on the turn around, he moved the ball to his stronger right foot before completing a phenomenal strike to the top corner.
According to SofaScore, Damsgaard is currently among the most successful forwards in the competition. He recorded six successful dribbles, four shots and two key assists, averaging 7.25 on top of his marvelous goal.
Considering it was on such a big stage, it was the first real glimpse of the 5-foot-11 young dynamo living up to its hype. It’s no surprise that his former manager Claudio Ranieri, who won the Premier League at Leicester, dubbed him a “child prodigy” with a “great future. “
These performances at Euro 2020 only build on his impressive national form of the 2020/21 campaign, where he registered two goals and four assists, but those numbers don’t do justice to his performance as a £ 11.7 million Dane has proven to be an exciting and versatile talent, displaying immense levels of work pace.
Last season, the longtime Brazilian managed just 1.1 successful dribbles per game, while not as industrious as Damsgaard either, averaging a lower average of 1.1 tackle attempts. at each league exit, according to Who scored.
Between September and February, the first-choice winger did not deliver a Premier League goal, underscoring his inconsistencies in a Spurs shirt.
Fabio Paratici must look to sign Damsgaard now that his asking price has been revealed and, in the process, the north Londoners can leave the Shaky Moura.
AND in other news, Paratici may seal Spurs’ dream Kane replacement in a ‘complete’ goal machine valued at £ 36million …
