‘Sampdoria don’t need to sell Torreira’

Sampdoria President Massimo Ferrero confirms Napoli interest in Lucas Torreira but “I don’t need to sell him”.

The midfielder has been heavily linked with Juventus, and last night his agent stated that both Roma and the Partenopei are also keen.

“He’s a bit like [Patrik] Schick because he’s good, willing and eager,” Ferrero explained on Radio Crc.

“He’s worth more than €30m because everyone wants him, including Napoli. [President Aurelio] De Laurentiis hasn’t asked me for him, I enjoy his company and we talk a little about football and a lot about cinema.

“I don’t need to sell him though.

“Fabio Quagliarella? When I came into football I tried to take Quagliarella right away, I sweated over him and he’s not for sale.”
