Atletico Madrid are reportedly interested in Sampdoria and Colombia striker Duvan Zapata in a €30m swoop.
The forward suffered from injury problems last year, but has rediscovered his form at Marassi.
Turning 27 next month, the powerful centre-forward found the net nine times in 23 Serie A appearances, along with five assists.
According to Tuttosport newspaper, Atletico Madrid are preparing an offer in the summer and Sampdoria have set the price-tag at €30m.
This would represent a large profit for the Blucerchiati, who signed him from Napoli on loan with obligation to buy for a total of €20m.
