Sampdoria sporting director Daniele Prade insists none of their major players will leave this month.
But he also admitted it will be difficult to bring in new recruits.
Prade stated: “If anyone leaves it will be those who play less.
“In terms of arrivals, it won't be easy to bring anyone in – this is also due to the way the boss works."
He added: “2017 has given us the opportunity to have an identity. We are a team to be feared and we go out to compete against anyone on any pitch.
"We can only get better and in the long term work pays off."
