The price tag for Sampdoria defender Giovanni Leoni has crept up to €6 million amid interest from Inter Milan, Juventus, and Spurs.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews. The newspaper anticipate something of a bidding war for the teenage defender.

Teenage defender Leoni spent last season on loan at Sampdoria.

The 17-year-old was at the Marassi on loan from Padova.

Despite his young age, Leoni carved out a place for himself at the heart of the Ligurian side’s defense.

Sampdoria had a purchase option to sign Leoni from Padova for 1.5 million. And there was never any question that they would exercise this.

And it is certainly looking as though the Ligurians will sell the 17-year-old this summer for a significant profit.

According to Tuttosport, the amount of interest that is emerging in Leoni’s signature could mean that the price tag rises beyond even what Sampdoria had initially hoped for.

Inter see Leoni as a target. Reportedly, they want to sign the 17-year-old this summer. Then send him back to Sampdoria on loan for next season.

The Nerazzurri reportedly had scouts watching Leoni during a Serie B match between Sampdoria and Ternana in April.

Inter are not the only team keen on Leoni though. Juventus and Torino are reportedly also keen from within Serie A.

And then the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Monaco have reportedly shown an interest in bringing the teenage defender to the Premier League and Ligue 1 respectively.

Given that all of these clubs have shown that they are serious about signing Leoni, Sampdoria are prepared to leverage the competition to demand a substantial fee for the teenager.

Tuttosport report that the asking price for Leoni is now no less than 5-6 million.
