West Ham United are thought to be interested in signing the Sampdoria midfielder Mikkel Damsgaard.
The 20-year-old midfielder is rated highly across Europe and he is considered as one of the most exciting talents in the Italian League right now.
According to Daily Star, Tottenham Hotspur were initially named as a potential suitor for the player but the likes of Southampton, Leeds United and the Hammers have now joined the chase as well.
The 20-year-old signed for Sampdoria in a £5.2 million deal last summer and it remains to be seen whether the Italian outfit are prepared to sanction his sale after just one season at the club.
The Denmark international has massive potential and he could develop into a key player for David Moyes if the Hammers managed to sign him.
SL View: Replacement for Lanzini?
Argentine midfielder Manuel Lanzini has been linked with a move away from the Hammers in the recent weeks and Damsgaard could be his long term replacement.
It remains to be seen if the London club can fend off the competition from their Premier League rivals and secure the 20-year-old’s services in the coming months.
Sampdoria are likely to demand a premium if they are forced to part with his services in the summer. That said, the Hammers have recently sold Sebastien Haller and they are yet to reinvest the money.
The Londoners certainly have the means to splash out on the exciting midfielder at the end of this season.
