No problem. Robert Skov has a deadly left foot, will go for big cash (for danish clubs) this summer. Has scored 29 goals this season from a winger/midfield position which is incredible.

Andreas Skov Olsen on the other hand, 22 goals & the 2nd highest scorer this season, behind the other Skov, is something else for a 19 year old. I don't think we have ever seen that in the Danish League. He has taken the league by Storm as you say. He's going to be bigger than his somewhat name brother Robert Skov according to many.

I don't watch to much from the Danish League, because it's absolutely shit, but when you can do that it means there's something about this guy.

He's compared to Patrik Schick in terms of technic and pshysical ability and is considered a GEM in scandinavian football. Lyon, Fiorentina and such clubs was after him in the winter.

Here's the official Welcome to Liverpool FC video:

That's what I got on the guy anyways.

Always nice to be linked to Danish players, even though we're pretty bad :smug:
Robert Skov has a sweet left foot, but is not near good enough in open play

Wrong bloke, should have read properly thought it was Robert Skov:LOL: Please forgive me SC. They’re both Danish and have Skov in their name - thought he was just called Robert because English commentators couldn’t pronounce his name:whistle:
For what it is worth, we were linked loosely with Robert Skov earlier this year...

www.skysports.com/amp/football/news/11675/11655084/who-is-robert-skov-tottenham-interested-in-copenhagen-winger

29 Goals and 9 Assists In 34 league games in the Danish Superliga this year at 23 years old, just breaking into the Danish Side...

If we were going for a Skov I’d rather this one...even if we gave him a year or two’s loan to develop.

Or get both...😈

Seen all his home games. Not good enough

Next
what don't u like about him? for any 18/19 year old to have a year he had in any adult league is impressive and would at least be worth taking the chance imo.

I watched him semi regularly and while he's very raw, he also looked relatively pacy, good technique and an eye for goal.

Bids in from Real Sociedad, Bordeaux, RB Leipzig & CSKA Moscow according to Danish sources.

Skov Olsen himself would prefer Sociedad.

Intrigued to see RB Leipzig having an interest they along with Bournemouth have good scouting.

Some good scouting. Leipzig buy tons of young talent and throws a lot of proverbial shit at the walls (as does Salzburg) and we hear only about the successes and not the failures.

It’s basically the same thing Monchi has done and he’s now been a name brand in England even though he has a laundry list of transfer failures.

It’s a decent model for sure, but not one where you can point and go “if they’re after them they must be good” because it’s so imprecise.

Looks like a good prospect, for sure. Good skill, pace, and good finishing. One to work with.

I’m amazed more mid table premier league teams don’t try it though.

Saw a report whereby he’s coming off contract next summer, so his club are looking to cash in now. Sounds like a Levy type deal.
Could this guy be the circa £15m youngster mentioned in ITK update 14?
Looking at videos, seems fairly dual footed, decent size and pace, good technique, knows where to put the ball coming in from wide areas.

Most danish players are far from £15M, especially the ones from the "superliga". Andreas Skov will go for max of 50million dkr (~€7 mill). The club just rejected a €4 mill bid for him.

Wouldn’t mind us taking a punt on him then at that price. Regardless of the level he’s playing at, his technique appears pretty decent. Good touch, and hits the ball well. Doesn’t look like he’d be bullied physically either.

Definately a "cheap" prospect. He came in from the bench and assisted + scored in the Denmark U21 vs Austria U21 in the euros. Nice goal btw.
