Sampdoria have officially signed midfielder Mehdi Leris from Chievo for a reported €3m plus bonuses.
A statement on Samp’s website confirms Leris has put pen to paper on a five-year contract.
The 21-year-old broke through for Chievo last season, scoring one goal and providing two assists in 24 appearances, despite their relegation.
Capable of playing as both a central midfielder or right winger, he has the choice of playing for France, Spain and Algeria at international level.
He becomes the Blucerchiati’s first addition since Jeison Murillo a month ago.
