Sampdoria have began negotiations over a contract extension with striker Federico Bonazzoli according to a report from Italian news outlet CalcioMercato.com.
Bonazzoli’s contract with the club is due to expire at the end of the upcoming season but the Stadio Luigi Ferraris side do not wish to lose him and are prepared to offer him an improved salary as part of a new contract with them.
The 23-year-old former Italian youth national team player has drawn links to a number of clubs in recent weeks, namely Inter, Fiorentina and Torino.
The report goes on to explain that Torino are willing to offer a figure close to €10 million to Sampdoria for Bonazzoli, who would be reunited with former Sampdoria manager Marco Giampaolo if he is to move to Turin.
This season Bonazzoli, who has been with La Samp since 2015, made 19 appearances across all competitions, in which he managed to score a total of six goals.
