Brentford's £16m bid for Damsgaard accepted | Bees to secure Eriksen replacement

Brentford's £16.7m offer for Danish midfielder Mikkel Damsgaard has been accepted by Sampdoria as the Bees close in on their replacement for Christian Eriksen.

The Bees are now discussing personal terms and hope to give the 22-year-old midfielder a medical in the coming days.

Brentford are looking for a new attacking midfielder after losing out on Christian Eriksen to Manchester United this summer and Damsgaard is the player who filled the mantel in Eriksen's stead for Denmark at Euro 2020, following Eriksen's cardiac arrest.

He scored twice during Denmark's journey to the semi-finals, including the defeat to England at Wembley - and was then linked with a move to the Premier League.

Damsgaard ultimately stayed in Serie A but only made 11 appearances last season after suffering a problem that kept him out of 27 games, from last October until mid-April.
