Sampdoria are preparing a bid for Wolfsburg and Croatia international winger Josip Brekalo, who is rated at least €10m.
According to Sportitalia, the Blucerchiati have set their sights firmly on the 21-year-old, who already has six senior caps for his country.
Brekalo plays primarily as an attack-minded left-sided winger and was purchased from Dinamo Zagreb for €7m in 2016.
He contributed three goals and four assists in 27 games this season, but made a strong impression during the European U21 Championship.
New Samp Coach Eusebio Di Francesco favours a 4-3-3 formation, so needs more attacking wide men in the squad.
