Leeds United are facing a big battle in their quest to snap up Denmark international Mikkel Damsgaard this summer. The report from Sportsmediaset revealed that two Premier League teams have also shown an interest in Damsgaard who was phenomenal for Denmark at the European Championship this summer. It was disclosed that both Aston Villa and Liverpool have their eyes on Damsgaard who plays his club football for Sampdoria in the Italian Serie A.


Reports from the previous week claimed that Leeds United have already contacted Sampdoria over the possibility of signing the aforementioned Denmark national team player and that he would be available for £30m. However, the interest shown by the Premier League duo of Liverpool and Aston Villa might complicate things for the Whites who begin their new Premier League campaign with an away clash with rivals Manchester United.

Liverpool have won several major trophies over the last few years and a move to the club could guarantee him trophies at the start of his career. The Reds have been very quiet in this transfer window with just a major signing to show for it. The only signing for the first team was centre back Moussa Konate who joined the club from German Bundesliga club RB Leipzig at the start of this summer.

For Aston Villa, they potentially have a lot of money with their skipper, Jack Grealish set to join Premier League champions Manchester City in a £100m deal. Villa have not received the money for the transfer said to be imminent but they have already spent on a few key players. They also have interest in players such as Denmark player Damsgaard, Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse and many more. Villa signings this summer include fullback Ashley Young, playmaker Emiliano Buendia, winger Leon Bailey and striker Danny Ings.
