Tottenham Hotspur interested in Sampdoria winger Mikkel Damsgaard after return from a lengthy injury lay-off

According to Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold on Youtube, via football.london, (h/t Express), the club are looking to secure the services of Sampdoria winger Mikkel Damsgaard in the summer, with the player returning to action after a lengthy injury lay-off.

One of Denmark’s brightest youngsters, the player made his name at Nordsjælland before he secured a move to Sampdoria, grabbing the chance to impress and move to a top 5 league in Europe to further his career.

However, it was during the 2020 UEFA Euros that the 21-year-old really made his name, scoring a couple of goals in the tournament that brought him acclaim across the continent for his style of play and impressive displays on the pitch.

He really made his mark on the European stage with a wonderful free-kick against England in the semi-finals of the competition to open the scoring, but would eventually find himself on the losing side as the Three Lions came from behind to win 2-1 on the night.

Return from injury

However, since his Euros heroics for his country, Damsgaard has suffered from arthritis, which has kept him out of action for five months. This season, the player has only managed seven appearances in Italy and has not turned out for Sampdoria since October.

Despite these injury concerns, Tottenham are said to be keen on signing the Serie A ace, with an eye on bolstering the attack ahead of manager Antonio Conte’s first full season in charge of the north London club.

After securing a forward in January, Conte will look to continue his attempts to sign more quality players that can turn his side into world-beaters. Dejan Kulusevski was brought in on a loan deal from Juventus to supplement the attack, and the Swede has been hugely impressive so far.

Damsgaard is a young and exciting talent, but his injury history will be concerning if Tottenham are considering an active transfer pursuit of the Dane. The star has barely featured since last year, and in a competition like the Premier League known for its intensity and physicality, the Sampdoria player may prove to be a liability.

Our transfer strategy needs to be focused on identifying players that are not only talented but also capable of adapting to the English game. The Premier League is fast-paced and physical, and the competition takes no prisoners. Talented stars have come and tried to survive, but without the right attributes, one cannot expect to succeed.

With a condition like arthritis, which echoes frailty, Damsgaard may perhaps not be the ideal candidate to recruit to strengthen our attack. After all, his only real claim to fame has been his Euros 2020 campaign, and we could do with someone who boasts of more honours and experience to help us fight for trophies next term.
