Roma-owned Gregoire Defrel is on loan at Sampdoria, but received interest from Fulham, Watford and West Ham United.
The 27-year-old forward joined from Sassuolo in the summer of 2017 for a total €20m and was sent out on loan to Sampdoria for €1.5m this season.
According to Sky Sport Italia and La Gazzetta dello Sport, it is possible he will intercept that spell six months early and go to England.
There is said to be interest from three Premier League clubs, namely Fulham, Watford and West Ham United.
So far this season, Defrel has contributed seven goals and an assist in 20 Sampdoria appearances between Serie A and the Coppa Italia.
