Sampdoria are reportedly still in with a hope of taking Juventus forward Fabio Quagliarella from under the noses of Torino.
The striker must find a new club this summer having been frozen out of preseason plans under Antonio Conte, with Toro seen as in advanced talks with their city rivals for his signature.
However, with an agreement between the clubs seen as yet to be reached, reports are that Sampdoria remain an interested party.
La Repubblica believe that new President Massimo Ferrero has Quagliarella as the player he ‘would like to deliver’ to Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic.
