#1 Mikkel Damsgaard (Denmark)
One of the players who was recently linked with Barcelona is Danish winger Mikkel Damsgaard. It can be fair to say that not many had heard of the player before the tournament, this could be due to the fact that he is only 21 but also because he had a relatively quiet club season. The versatile winger who plays for the Italian side, Sampdoria, scored only twice in the Serie A last season, and provided only four assists. These stats are quite below exciting however, what is exciting is his potential. He traditionally plays as a left-winger however, in reality, he can play all over the pitch, including as a central midfielder, as well as a secondary striker.
He was used quite diligently by Kasper Hjulmand after their first loss against Finland, and since then Damsgaard had a spree of great results. His first goal came against Russia which was a fantastic strike from outside the box, and the Danes went on to beat the Russians 4-1. He then provided an assist against Wales, and his final goal came against England, in what can only be described as a scrumptious free-kick. He was fantastic throughout the tournament however, Sampdoria’s president has put a big price tag on the player. Barca will have to negotiate with the Italian side, if they want to sign the player however if they do manage to sign him, he can do wonders for the Catalan side.
Which of these players should Barca sign?
