Barcelona reportedly take an interest in Sampdoria youngster Mikkel Damsgaard following his stellar performances for Denmark at Euro 2020.

Barcelona are reportedly keeping a close eye on Sampdoria attacker Mikkel Damsgaard.

The Danish youngster instantly became a regular for the Serie A side following his 2020 move from Nordsjaelland, and he ended the 2020-21 season with two goals and four assists from 35 league outings.

Damsgaard earned himself a place in Denmark's Euro 2020 squad following his impressive season at Sampdoria, and he scored a sublime opener to put his nation ahead in their 4-1 triumph over Russia - a result which sealed a place in the last-16 for the Scandinavian side.

The winger has previously been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur, but according to Sport, Barcelona are showing a genuine interest in his services.

Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero has affirmed that another goal for Damsgaard at Euro 2020 would see his value rise to €40m (£34.3m), and Barca may have to battle Juventus for the starlet's signature.

Damsgaard's existing deal at Sampdoria is not due to expire until the end of the 2023-24 season.

Sunday's key events


GOLF
· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

CYCLING - BMX
· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

SWIMMING
· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

BOXING
· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

TENNIS
· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

SAILING
· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS
· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

ATHLETICS
· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

HOCKEY
· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
