Soriano has Villarreal medical

Roberto Soriano is taking his Villarreal medical ahead of a transfer from Sampdoria.

It emerged in recent days that the Italian international was on the brink of a €13.5m switch to Spain.

Now Gianluca Di Marzio’s website reports that Soriano is this morning taking medical tests with the La Liga club, meaning he should officially be announced as a Villarreal player later today.

The 25-year-old saw a move to Napoli collapse at the 11th hour last summer, remaining at the Blucerchiati and scoring eight goals and providing four assists.
