Official: Zapata and Strinic to Samp

Sampdoria have officially signed Duvan Zapata and Ivan Strinic from Napoli on permanent moves.

The deal had been done last night for a reported total €23m, despite strong competition from Sassuolo.

Colombian centre-forward Duvan Zapata, who just returned from a two-year loan at Udinese, joins Samp on loan with obligation to buy at the end of the season.

Strinic is a permanent transfer to Sampdoria, the 30-year-old Croatia international defender being at Napoli since January 2015.
