Siena sporting director Stefano Antonelli has admitted that Innocent Emeghara is being targeted by Sampdoria.
The Switzerland international was a rare bright spark for the relegated Robur last season, scoring seven goals in 17 games after his arrival in January.
But the board member has admitted that the Tuscan side probably won't keep the striker for long.
“The boy has a lot of interest,” Antonelli told Sky Sport Italia. “Sampdoria are just one of a number of clubs interested.
“Innocent has had a lot of attention. We have had a lot of curiosity calls.
“I guess Sampdoria would be keen to have him.
“An approach could have been made, but not through us.”
