Sampdoria director Osti says 2 signings on their way

Sampdoria director Carlo Osti says two new signings are on their way.

Before defeat to Juventus, Osti announced Monaco striker Keita Balde Diao would be arriving and that Inter Milan veteran Antonio Candreva was also under consideration.

“We are expecting Keita over the next few days, as he needs to resolve some final issues with Monaco, but we have already agreed everything," Osti told Sky Sport Italia.

“Candreva is a player we like a great deal, but we are not the only club interested. It is up to the player and his agent to decide between the various offers and we are waiting to see what happens.

“Our interest in Candreva therefore slows down the pursuit of Marin, as his arrival or not depends on who we get in our wider roles, which in turn also affects the midfielders."
