Leeds United presenter Joe Wainman has been sharing his thoughts on the possibility of Sampdoria winger Mikkel Damsgaard making a move to Elland Road this summer.
This comes after Wainman recently uploaded a video onto his YouTube channel where he discussed a variety of news topics concerning the Yorkshire club.
He said: “Look, Leeds United, unfortunately, I just don’t think we have the capacity, we don’t have the money and the funds to be able to fund the Mikkel Damsgaard transfer.
“Of course, I would love to, of course, Bielsa would want him, why wouldn’t he, if you ask him outright do you want [Lionel] Messi, of course, he’d say yeah, doesn’t mean you’re going to get him, does it?
“I don’t think [he’ll join] Aston Villa, they’ve got what they need, so maybe Tottenham.
“Tottenham does make sense, especially with the [Christian] Eriksen one when he went there, I just think it’s a shoo-in, that – Mikkel Damsgaard rocking up at Spurs.”
Since then, the 21-year-old, who is also currently valued at £18 million according to Transfermarkt, has made 37 appearances for the Serie A club across all competitions, scoring two goals and providing four assists in the process.
TIF Thoughts on Joe Wainman’s comments on a potential move for Damsgaard…
If Spurs and Leeds are interested in signing Damsgaard this summer, then it’s understandable why Wainman thinks the left-winger could possibly prefer a move to the north London club ahead of Leeds given how they finished above Bielsa’s side in the Premier League table last season and secured a place in the UEFA Europa Conference League.
Do you think Leeds need to sign a winger?
In our view, if a move for Damsgaard proves to be financially difficult, the club shouldn’t waste their time trying to sign him and just move on.
Also, with Leeds conceding a total of 54 goals in the league last season and with them already conceding five goals in their opening game of this current season, perhaps the club should be focusing on defensive reinforcements rather than bringing in any new attacking players first.
