Sampdoria are interested in signing Inter linked Zinho Vanheusden, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Turin based newspaper Tuttosport.

The report details how the 20-year-old Belgian defender has attracted the interest of many Italian clubs, like Atalanta and Fiorentina, and now Sampdoria have joined the race to sign the player. The Nerazzurri sold Vanheusden to Belgian club Standard Liege last summer, but inserted a buy back clause in the deal, worth €15 million.

Standard Liege are struggling financially due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the report continues, and so will most likely be forced to sell the player. Vanheusden has made 28 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 2334 minutes. In that time, he has scored two goals and helped the club keep eight clean sheets.

Inter are looking for a new defender in the summer transfer window to replace Diego Godin, who seems destined to leave Milan after struggling to adapt to coach Antonio Conte’s system.
