Mikkel Damsgaard would cost Leeds £30million - Fabrizio Romano

Fabrizio Romano has shared that Leeds United-linked Mikkel Damsgaard will cost £30million from Sampdoria this summer.

The Whites were linked with a big move for the 21-year-old by Sabah, alongside the likes of Barcelona.

Romano admitted that the stock of Damsgaard has gone through the roof after an “extraordinary” summer at the EUROs.

Writing on CBS Sports this week, Romano shared the huge update on the EUROs talent who has been linked with Elland Road.

“Sampdoria paid €7million [£6million] for this 21-year-old just over a year ago,” he wrote.

“Today he is worth at least €35million [£30million] after an extraordinary Euros with Denmark. He scores, assists and brings quality. 

“His future is uncertain, but one thing is clear: Perhaps no player has improved their stock more over the course of this summer’s tournament than the Danish midfield maestro.”

Extraordinary.

Damsgaard has certainly been one of the best players at the EUROs this summer, and his journey continues on Wednesday.

The winger will take on England for a place in the finals, and no doubt come under very close attention from Kalvin Phillips.

Denmark have been one of the surprise packages of the tournament so far, although looked tired against the Czech Republic, something the Three Lions certainly didn’t look like on Saturday.

£30million would be a huge sum of money to spend this summer and would require Andrea Radrizzani to smash the club record once again.

Damsgaard has another chance to prove his worth in what will be the biggest game of his career on Wednesday, although we do wish that doesn’t happen against us – bring it on.
