Sampdoria have reportedly agreed a €14m fee with Valencia for Italy striker Simone Zaza.
Zaza seemed to be closing in on a switch to Torino, but Sky Sport Italia and Sportitalia claims Samp have dived in with a bid of €2m up front and €14m next year.
Sky adds the Blucerchiati have offered the former Juventus attacker a four-year contract ahead of Friday’s 19:00 BST deadline.
The 27-yer-old joined Valencia in January 2017 and scored 19 goals in 53 Liga appearances for the Spaniards.
However, he fell out of favour in the second half of last season and faces further competition from new signings Kevin Gameiro and Michy Batshuayi.
