Sampdoria midfielder Angelo Palombo is attracting interest from China.

Palombo is back at Samp after a spell on-loan at Inter Milan, but is on the outer of coach Ciro Ferrara's plans.

Marcello Lippi's Guangzhou Evergrande are keen on the 30 year-old midfielder.

Palombo discussed a contract release with Samp in the final days of the summer market as Guangzhou Evergrande made their interest known.
