Barcelona are tracking Sampdoria winger Mikkel Damsgaard at this summer's Euro 2020.
Damsgaard has been a revelation for Denmark since stepping in for Christian Eriksen, following the Inter Milan midfielder's cardiac arrest.
Sport says Barca president Joan Laporta is taking a personal interest in Damsgaard, though will face stiff competition should he make a formal move.
Juventus, Tottenham and Inter Milan are all keen.
Samp signed Damsgaard for €7m in September and now rate him in the €40m class.
