Sampdoria have missed out on Jan Hurtado, as the Gimnasia La Plata striker is currently having his medical with Boca Juniors.
The 19-year-old Venezuela international was a confirmed target for Samp, although President Massimo Ferrero revealed on Friday that he was not prepared to pay the €9m asking price.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Boca Juniors took advantage of the stall in negotiations to secure a deal with Gimnasia La Plata.
Hurtado is having his medical with Boca and is expected to join for €5.5m representing 70 per cent of his contract.
