Samp work on Tonelli

Sampdoria are reportedly working on a deal to sign Napoli defender Lorenzo Tonelli.

According to, Tonelli is a prime target for Samp boss Marco Giampaolo, who worked with the stopper at Empoli.

However, the website warns Napoli are playing hardball over the 28-year-old, demanding an obligation to buy for the Blucerchiati if they take him on loan.

Alternatively, Il Secolo XI claims a permanent transfer would set Samp back €7m – a fee they deem ‘excessive’.
