Speculation continues to grow suggesting that Samu Castillejo could leave AC Milan before the window shuts with Sampdoria pushing to complete a deal.
Gianluca Di Marzio reports how it has emerged the last few minutes that Sampdoria are trying to close their winter transfer window with one last important signing to give new head coach Marco Giampaolo some attacking depth.
The Sampdoria leadership are in contact with Milan for Samu Castillejo, and the report claims that the parties are in contact to seek an agreement and define the details that would see the 27-year-old move to the Genoa-based club on loan.
Samp tried to agree a deal with Sassuolo for Defrel but they were unable to do so, which convinced their management to try again for Castillejo who Giampaolo knows well. The negotiation was concocted at the last minute but it is already very well underway and the closure is very close.
The two clubs are in close telephone contact, the player has already left Milanello and future seems to be heading more and more towards being a Blucerchiate player.
