The Sampdoria starlet really does seem to have it all. And now he’s proven that he has what it takes to produce the goods on the very biggest stage.

The 20-year-old Sampdoria starlet is a left winger by trade. He can also operate in the central midfield and centre-forward positions, however.

Damsgaard is energetic, dynamic and plays with a real kind of enthusiasm that can be infectious to his teammates.

He could be available for around £17 million this summer according to a report from Club Doria 46.

West Ham should be doing everything they can to get this one wrapped up before he produces any more magic at the Euros!
