Sampdoria are on the verge of signing Udinese and Colombia forward Luis Muriel for €15m.
According to Sky Sport Italia, the two clubs have almost reached an agreement on the deal, which will be €12m upfront plus €3m in add-ons.
It’s reported that a crunch meeting is currently taking place in London with the Pozzo family, who own Udinese, Watford and Granada.
“Many clubs want me, but we are very close to Sampdoria and I think this will be my destination. My agent is taking care of things and I am very happy with the news he has given me so far.
“Sampdoria are the ideal destination, as they are aiming for Europe. We still need a few more details for the transfer, but I hope to find consistency – whether at Sampdoria or Udinese – to get back into the Colombia squad.”
Muriel is a replacement for Manolo Gabbiadini, who arrived this evening to complete a €13m transfer to Napoli.
