Former Catania striker Maxi Lopez delighted with Sampdoria move

Former Catania striker Maxi Lopez has completed his switch to Sampdoria.

Sealing a move to Samp on an initial 12-month loan at a cost of €2.5m, with an option for the Blucerchiati to make that permanent with a further €6m, Lopez is delighted to have had his wish come true.

"The sensation is good. I'm happy to arrive at a major club that has big ambitions," stated the striker on Samptv.

"I am very happy to take these first steps in this big city. When you are wanted so much a club like Sampdoria from a prestigious town like this, then it is difficult to turn them down.

"They have shown me that they wanted me and this was important for me.

"Their project is serious, there are grounds here to do well. I am confident."
