Genoa defender Mario Sampirisi is attracting the attention of the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United according to his agent.

The soon-to-be 20-year old Italian right-back has been impressive in Serie A this season with his representative, Giuseppe Riso, telling tuttomercatoweb that there is interest in his client.

"Chelsea and Manchester United interested in him? Yeah, they sent their scouts to follow him live but I don't know if they'll try to take him in January," Riso said.

"Genoa do not want to sell. But I am not surprised that the Premier League clubs have their eye on him. Mario has the typical physique that British teams like.

"But also some Italian clubs are following him."
