Campbell: Leeds could be about to sign Euros hero Damsgaard for 'good' price
Sampdoria attacker Mikkel Damsgaard “could make a real difference” at Leeds United next season, according to Kevin Campbell.
The former Arsenal and Everton striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, heaped praise on the 21-year-old who would be an ideal fit on the left-hand side for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
Damsgaard has been one of the standout players at the Euros and last night scored a sublime free-kick against England in the semi-finals.
According to Turkish news outlet Sabah (via Leeds Live July 5th), the Whites are one of a number of clubs in the race to sign the winger.
Gazzetta dello Sport claim Sampdoria will demand £25.7million for Damsgaard, who has three years remaining on his contract.
When asked for his thoughts on the potential move, Campbell told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs: “That is a good price for a great player.

“He really looks the part. I was very interested to see how he did in the semi-final and let’s be straight, he did not disappoint.
“He looks very sharp on the ball and has an eye for goal too.
“I could see him at Leeds on the left-hand side, I really could. He would make a real difference to that squad next season.”
Damsgaard contributed an impressive two goals and one assist in his five appearances at the Euros.
His 37 appearances for Sampdoria have yielded two goals and four assists.
