Sampdoria have let right-back Jacopo Sala join SPAL on a permanent basis and brought in teenager Kaique Rocha from Santos.
Sala moves to SPAL on a three-year contract and belatedly succeeds Manuel Lazzari on their right flank.
The 27-year-old is a former Italy youth international, who spent his early career in England and Germany with Chelsea and Hamburg respectively.
He ends his spell at Marassi with 66 appearances and two assists in all competitions.
Samp have since taken another right-back in Rocha, who only turned 18 in February.
However, his age and lack of first-team experience suggests he could be one for their Primavera side instead.
