Fenerbahçe target Samuel Eto’o set to join Sampdoria [divider]
Everton forward Samuel Eto’o is set to join Sampdoria according to his agent Claudio Vigorelli.
“He’s chosen Genoa [Sampdoria’s home city] and he’s really motivated,” Vigorelli told Genovese newspaper Il Secolo XIX.
“In the last few hours, an offer arrived from Santos which was greater from a financial viewpoint, but he isn’t interested in it.
“His family lives in Milan and he dreams of playing in such a passionate place like Genoa to finish his career. He’s going to live in Genoa and is not going to commute between Milan and Genoa, like I’ve heard there being talk of him doing. He’s a great professional and has done well wherever he has been.”
Fenerbahçe had also been closely linked with the Cameroon international.
Eto’o has scored four goals in 20 appearances for Everton this season.
The 33-year-old striker has previously played for Chelsea, Anzhi, Inter and Barcelona.
