Sampdoria have added fuel to speculations linking hotshot Mauro Icardi with a summer exit from Marassi by admitting the player could be sold next summer.
Icardi, 19, has exploded onto the biggest stage this season after replacing injured Maxi Lopez in the starting line-up at Marassi.
As a result, the talented forward has been linked with a number of top Italian clubs, with Napoli even making a transfer deadline day bid for his services.
Sampdoria sporting director has now moved to confirm that Napoli, Juventus and Inter are all keen on the Argentine footballer.
“Putting the transfer fee to one side, Napoli would have had to have reached an agreement with his agent,” Sampdoria sporting director Carlo Osti told Radio Kiss Kiss.
“Icardi is a Samp player, but we didn’t say no and we’ll evaluate everything in June.
“He is being followed by a lot of clubs, including Juventus and Inter, but I think it will be more difficult to reach an agreement with his agent rather than with Sampdoria…”
Mauro Icardi came through the youth ranks at Barcelona, but was allowed to leave for Sampdoria in the summer of 2011, with the Serie A side paying €400,000 for his services.
After making just two appearances in Serie B last term, Icardi has featured in 17 Serie A matches this season, scoring 7 goals in the process.
