Sampdoria snap up Budimir

Sampdoria have reportedly signed Crotone striker Ante Budimir for €1.8m, penning a four-year deal.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the transfer is essentially complete and an announcement imminent.

Budimir has put pen to paper on a four-year contract with Sampdoria.

The Croatian, who turns 25 next month, was a key figure in Crotone’s first ever promotion into Serie A this summer.

He scored 16 goals in 40 Serie B appearances.

Budimir had been on loan from St Pauli, but Crotone activated the option to buy for €1m.
