Sampdoria have officially signed defender Julian Chabot from Dutch side Groningen on a five-year contract.
The deal was confirmed by Samp on their official website and will go through once the transfer window reopens on July 1.
The Blucerchiati will reportedly pay €3.7m for the 21-year-old, who has helped Groningen to an eighth-place finish in the Eredivisie.
Chabot, a Germany Under-20 international, previously played for Sparta Rotterdam and RB Leipzig.
He could replace Joachim Andersen, who is of interest to the likes of Inter and Tottenham Hotspur.
