Cassani set for Viola exit?

Mattia Cassani is being linked with a January move to Sampdoria after becoming a peripheral figure at Fiorentina.

The Viola signed the player outright in the summer after a loan spell from Palermo, but he could be on the move again.

The Italian international has only appeared in eight Serie A ties this term and four of those have come as a substitute.

Sampdoria could be interested in the player given that new boss Delio Rossi worked with the 29-year-old in Tuscany last season.

Former club Palermo have also been linked with the former Juventus and Verona stopper.
