Sampdoria have officially confirmed the signing of Atalanta midfielder Luca Cigarini.
It was evident last night that a deal was on the verge of completion, as the 30-year-old left pre-season training to head to Genoa.
“UC Sampdoria announces that it has acquired the player Luca Cigarini [born in Montecchio Emilia, Reggio Emilia, June 20, 1986] outright from Atalanta,” the Blucerchiati confirmed on their official website.
No figures have been given for the deal, but it’s thought Samp will pay around €3m for the creative midfielder.
