Novara look to Serie B top scorer

Newly-promoted Novara are looking to Davide Lanzafame and Federico Piovaccari, but could lose their goalkeeper to Sampdoria.

The Piedmont outfit was propelled into Serie A for the first time in 55 years by winning the play-offs.

According to the latest reports, they are intent on improving the front line for next season.

Lanzafame is the first candidate, as the Juventus-owned versatile figure failed to make an impact at Brescia this term.

The other option is Piovaccari, who topped the Capocannoniere charts in Serie B with his 23 goals for Cittadella.

There is a race to sign Piovaccari, as he is also of interest to Sampdoria.

Novara are also thought to be in negotiations with Samp over goalkeeper Samir Ujkani, as the 22-year-old Albanian international was a key figure in their promotion campaign.

Ujkani is still co-owned by Palermo and is also of interest to Torino.
