Enzo Maresca is set to become the sixth first-team player at Malaga to depart this summer, as reports list his Sampdoria move as complete.
Although not made official by either Malaga or Sampdoria, Marca are running the line that the 32-year-old midfielder is already in Italy ahead of an announcement on his move being made.
The former Juventus and Sevilla man has been continually linked to newly-promoted Samp this summer and last week admitted that he was mulling over a two-year contract offer from Ciro Ferrara’s men.
Left out of the Malaga squad for their weekend draw with Mallorca, Marca now suggest that the player has finalised his transfer and that it will be made official shortly.
Maresca would follow Santi Cazorla, Salomon Rondon, Joris Mathijsen, Apono and Xavi Torres out the door at the financially stricken Anchovies.
