Spurs, West Ham target Damsgaard: Sampdoria giving me what I need

Sampdoria winger Mikkel Damsgaard is attracting major interest from the Premier League.

The likes of Tottenham and West Ham are following the Dane, along with Juventus.

Damsgaard is aware of the reports, but insists he's happy with his choice to move to Serie A this summer: "I needed to take a step forward, measuring myself with a more competitive football than the Danish.

"Before signing, I visited the headquarters, the sports centre and spoke to the people of the club who explained the size and the project of the club. I was satisfied with the answers.

"From July to today I have to say that the Italian reality has met my expectations: strong players, well-trained coaches, high-level league. It's what I needed."
