Poli, Palombo absent for Samp

Andrea Poli and Angelo Palombo are the notable absentees to Ciro Ferrara’s squad named to begin pre-season.

The two midfielders both spent last season on loan at Inter, Poli from the start and Palombo from January. Whilst the Nerazzurri did not take up the option to sign either player at the agreed price, both men are expected to leave Marassi this summer.

Poli is anticipated to return to Inter and is thought on the verge of completing a deal within days, whilst Palombo held talks with Juventus earlier this week.

Ferrara has called up 28 players in total for pre-season work, including yesterday’s signing Maxi Lopez.

Full squad

Goalkeepers: Angelo Esmael Junior Da Costa, Wladimiro Falcone, Vincenzo Fiorillo, Daniele Padelli, Sergio German Romero.

Defenders: Gaetano Berardi, Edoardo Blondett, Paolo Castellini, Andrea Costa, Daniele Gastaldello, Zsolt Laczko, Shkodran Mustafi, Jonathan Rossini, Massimo Volta.

Midfielders: Savvas Gentsoglou, Nenad Krsticic, Gianni Munari, Pedro Obiang, Renan Garcia, Gianluca Sampietro, Roberto Soriano, Fernando Damián Tissone.

Attackers: Juan Ignacio Antonio, Simone Corazza, Eder Citadin Martins, Mauro Emanuel Icardi, Maxi Lopez, Nicola Pozzi.
