It is reported that Sampdoria are close to securing a loan move for new Fiorentina goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu.
The Romanian shot-stopper only yesterday signed a five-year contract with the Viola after leaving previous club Steaua Bucharest as a free agent.
However, it is now claimed by Il Secolo XIX that the 28-year-old will head to the Luigi Ferraris for a season in order to accustom himself to life in Serie A.
Owing to the form of current Fiorentina number one Neto last year, Tatarusanu may also potentially struggle for game time should he remain at the Artemio Franchi next term.
