Leeds reportedly in race to sign Euro 2020 star Mikkel Damsgaard

Leeds are keen to sign Sampdoria ace Mikkel Damsgaard after his fine performances for Denmark at Euro 2020 this summer, according to a report from Tuttosport.

Whites boss Marcelo Bielsa seems to be on a mission to get Leeds back to the top echelons of the game.

Junior Firpo has already arrived from Barcelona while links with Nahitan Nandez (Corriere dello Sport) and Matheus Cunha (Leeds Live) continue to circulate.

And it seems as though another name is now on the Whites’ radar.

Tuttosport claims that the Yorkshire outfit could challenge Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur for the talented 21-year-old this summer.

And what a coup it would be for Bielsa if he manages to bring the Sampdoria starlet to Elland Road.

The Denmark international showcased his ability during the Euros this summer.

He is technically gifted and has a real change of pace.

Gazzetta Sampdoriana claim that it could cost around £25 million to prise him away from Sampdoria.

It seems as though Damsgaard could well be a superstar in the making.

However, Leeds clearly have a lot of work to do if they are to win the race for the Dane’s services.

Some of the clubs challenging the Whites really are as big as they come.
