Angelo Palombo could make his first appearance for Sampdoria in almost a year when they face Juventus this weekend.
The 31-year-old hasn’t featured in a Doria shirt since a Serie B game against Gubbio back on January 28, 2012.
After spending six months on loan at Inter last season, he returned to Marassi in the summer but was frozen out of the first team squad.
However, the Italian international is back in the selection frame following the arrivals of boss Delio Rossi and sporting director Carlo Osti last month.
Given the injury to Enzo Maresca, the Gazzetta dello Sport is suggesting that the midfielder could get a game at the Juventus Stadium on Sunday.
