There are reports that Sampdoria will look to bring Brazilian centre-back Doria on loan from Marseille.
The Blucerchiati are on the verge of completing a deal for Modibo Diakite, but are reportedly in the market for another central defender.
Tuttomercatoweb believes that enquiries have been made for Doria, with a free loan with a right of redemption mooted.
Doria was regarded as a promising defender, but has failed to make a single appearance for Marseille since joining from Botafogo.
