Mikkel Damsgaard is on the left winger list. Wants to leave and leonine SAD evaluates possibilities. Sinisterra, from Leeds, is also on the table
Sporting’s SAD and Hugo Viana aim batteries at a new left winger and Damsgaard is on the list of players much appreciated by Rúben Amorim. The 23-year-old Dane, present at the last World Cup and semi-finalist and central figure in the European Championship played in 2021 (five games in the starting line-up and two goals), fits the intended profile. He’s at Brentford, in the Premier League, and intends to go out and play more, even knowing that the emblem wants to sign another winger.
The athlete was hired for €15 million from Sampdoria in 2021/22, but was never an undisputed starter, adding two games this year, but as a substitute. Sporting is currently evaluating the conditions for a potential loan and will facilitate the fact that the player belongs to the same agency as Hjulmand. The leonine emblem seeks to explore a business opportunity until Friday, the day the market closes, and knows that many athletes prefer to gain space in other clubs to be called up to the national team and in a European year the lion plays a trump card that he used with Sarabia.
As O JOGO reported, the winger position is one that Amorim had flagged as lacking options, but the Board first favored the acquisitions of a striker (Gyokeres), a defensive midfielder (Hjulmand) and a right winger (Iván Fresneda, to be made official), who had fewer alternatives within the squad. Paulinho and Gyokeres were used simultaneously in the last two games, the first more on the left, but the coach wants more solutions for the left side of the attack, not least because strategically he should often use only one of the strikers. And without being sure about the future of Edwards, who is coveted in Saudi Arabia, whose market only closes on September 20, SAD and Amorim agree to take precautions. The coach asks for an unbalanced player, with undeniable qualities, and Damsgaard would naturally be a key signing with the capacity to assume immediate protagonism.
Colombian Luis Sinisterra, faster and more explosive, is also in the cards. He plays for Leeds, in the Championship, and was even removed from the main group, demanding to leave at no cost due to the fact that the team was relegated to the Championship. Leeds paid Feyenoord €25m for the player a year ago.
