There are a number of interested clubs from Europes biggest leagues who are discussing with my agent and Ill be making a decision shortly together with my family and my agent.

Its very important to me that Sampdoria can also benefit from an eventual transfer. Its not all about me. I have so much to thank this great club for. Without Sampdoria, I wouldnt have had the opportunities I have had to this point.

I have dreams of playing in the biggest clubs in the world and the biggest leagues in the world – Im lucky enough to already be playing in one of them.
