But despite a lucrative offer to stay in West London, Eriksen decided to move to Manchester United.
Damsgaard was one of the standout players at Euro 2020 last year when Denmark reached the semi-finals.
But the playmaker suffered an injury last season.
He only made 12 appearances but is now fully fit and Thomas Frank is keen to sign him for the new Premier League season.
