Sampdoria have made it clear that they are in search of an attacking player in the January transfer period to play alongside Antonio Cassano upfront for the remainder of the season.
The Blucerchiati have scored just 15 times in 16 matches, with Cassano scoring five of those goals, and it comes as no surprise why they are in desperate need of some offensive reinforcements.
Several players have been linked with a move to Samp, and the latest is Adriano of Inter Milan, a player who they themselves have publicly declared their interest in.
The CEO of the club, Beppe Marotta, spoke to the Serie A broadcast on Mediaset Premium and confirmed the Blucerchiati’s interest in the Brazilian striker.
“When Adriano is up and running he is a true champion,” Marotta stated.
“Inter have so many strikers, which is very hard to manage, and we would like to make their life a little easier,” Marotta jokingly added.
“The Brazilian, if possible, could have a similar experience with us as Cassano has had in the past couple of seasons,” he concluded.
These latest comments may not go down well with the Nerazzurri however, who only days ago confirmed that Adriano would not be leaving the club, and that they were not interested in any possible deals for their superstar striker.
