Poli ignores Juventus talk

Andrea Poli is ignoring speculation that he’ll be joining Juventus during the summer. “I’m just thinking of Sampdoria.”

The Italian international, who spent last season on loan at Inter, is reportedly set to sign for the Old Lady on a co-ownership deal.

“I’m happy to be playing my football here in this shirt,” the midfielder told the Corriere Mercantile newspaper. “This is the ideal environment for a young player to improve.

“I’m only thinking of Sampdoria, I have nothing else to reflect on. My target at this point in time is to make sure Sampdoria finish as high as possible.”

Sampdoria drew 0-0 with second-placed Napoli on Sunday.
