Italian club Sampdoria eye Brazilian midfielder Andrey

RIO DE JANEIRO (XINHUA) – Sampdoria have joined the race to sign Vasco da Gama midfielder Andrey Ramos, according to Brazilian media reports.

Andrey is also understood to have attracted the interest of Turkey’s Galatasaray, who have already made a formal bid for the 22 year-old, the Lance news service reported on Sunday.

Sampdoria are 16th in the 20-team Italian Serie A, which has been suspended since March 9 because of the coronavirus outbreak.

Left-back Dodo is currently the only Brazilian in the Genoa club’s squad.

Andrey, who previously represented Brazil at youth level, has made 72 league appearances for Vasco since his professional debut in 2016.
