Fabio Quagliarella inks Sampdoria deal

Sampdoria have moved to announce that they have signed Italian striker Fabio Quagliarella from Serie A rivals Napoli.

The veteran forward joins the Blucerchiati on loan with an obligation to buy following an impressive start to the season at Torino.

Sampdoria were desperate to sign a quality striker after seeing Eder leave for Inter Milan and they did well to secure Quagliarella’s signature.

The 33-year-old returns for the second spell at Stadio Marassi, having scored 13 goals in 35 league outings for the Blucerchiati between 2006 and 2007.

He later fell out with Sampdoria fans as he refused to celebrate a goal scored against boyhood club Napoli, but now gets another chance to earn their trust.

The well-traveled striker has spent his entire career in native Italy, representing Torino, Fiorentina, Chieti, Ascoli, Sampdoria, Udinese, Napoli and Juventus, making a total of 242 Serie A appearances and scoring 93 goals in the process.
