Tottenham could miss out on the signature of Mikkel Damsgaard this summer as AC Milan hatches a plan that could see them win the race for his signature.
The Dane has emerged as one of the stars of the future with his Euro 2020 performances this summer.
He had been on the radar of Spurs before the competition even kicked off because of his performances for Sampdoria in Serie A.
The Italians know that they have a jewel on their hands and will probably be happy that several clubs want to sign him, simply because that will drive his price up
La Gazzetta reports that he is attracting the attention of Milan in this transfer window and they are keen to sign him soon.
Sampdoria currently values him at around 35m euros and they would be confident that one of his suitors will be able to pay that fee.
The report says Milan will struggle to meet their asking price and they have now decided to add a player to their offer for his signature.
The same report states they will add Andrea Conti, who has just returned from his loan spell at Parma.
If Tottenham is serious about signing him, the Lilywhites have to move for his signature now.
It remains unclear if he would also be a target of their latest manager, Nuno Espirito Santo.
