Dennis Praet has reportedly agreed personal terms, as Leicester City and Sampdoria exchanged the contracts this evening for €21m.
According to Sky Sport Italia breaking news, the deal has been done after a momentary hiccup based on his salary demands.
The Belgium international had been valued at €26m, but it’s reported he will move to the Premier League for €21m.
There are also some performance-related bonuses involved.
Praet had also been linked with Milan, where he wanted a reunion with former Samp Coach Marco Giampaolo.
The 25-year-old had moved from RSC Anderlecht to Sampdoria in 2016 for €8m.
