Il Secolo XIX writes that the 34-year-old has received an offer from Samp and will respond to it before Saturday, although Premier League sides Aston Villa, West Ham and Leicester City are also reportedly interested.
Meanwhile, the club’s bid for Napoli defender Juan Camilo Zuniga has hit a roadblock after Rai Sport reported that the Colombian’s salary demands of €3.5m per season are too high for Walter Zenga’s side.
