Spurs target Mikkel Damsgaard compared with Kevin De Bruyne
Spurs have perhaps been given further reason to target Euro 2020 revelation Mikkel Damsgaard, with his former chairman telling The Times that he sees similarities between the Dane and Kevin De Bruyne.
Damsgaard has been outstanding this summer. The 21-year-old has scored once and provided one assist to help Denmark book their semi-final place.
Like so many of his teammates, he has stepped up considerably in the wake of the tragic events involving Christian Eriksen.
He is on the cusp of history. And he may also be on the cusp of a big move this summer.
According to Samp News 24, Fabio Paratici is keen to take the attacking midfielder to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The report comes several months after it was claimed that Spurs were the side showing most interest in the £5.7 million starlet.
As noted by The Times, he has previously been compared with Michael Laudrup. But Nordsjaelland chairman Jan Laursen suggested that parallels can be drawn with Manchester City star De Bruyne.
“He was also small and skinny and he developed in a club where they saw his potential. They both are not the strongest and fastest, but they are very clever players,” he told The Times.
Damsgaard has perfect stage for Spurs audition after De Bruyne comparison
Of course, Spurs fans will not expect Damsgaard to be as influential as De Bruyne is at the Etihad if he joins.
But it does highlight the potential he appears to have.
He now has the perfect stage on Wednesday to show Tottenham exactly what they would be getting.
Denmark travel to Wembley looking to continue their fairytale at England’s expense.
Obviously, that means that Damsgaard is set to do battle with several Premier League stars.
If he can impress, Spurs will surely sit up and take notice.
Unfortunately for Tottenham, if Damsgaard can inspire Denmark to the final, their task of landing him may get even tougher.
