Sampdoria Coach Ciro Ferrara is impressed with his side’s progress and tells Juventus that Andrea Poli “will not be leaving.”
Poli returned from a loan spell at Inter and is reportedly on the verge of joining Juve.
“I have a clear idea on the Poli situation and have already expressed it to the club,” Ferrara told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“In my view, unless of course we receive a crazy offer that would turn our heads, he will not be leaving.
“Anything can happen, but my tactical plans include Poli and my intention is to keep him. Andrea also expressed the desire to stay.”
On Friday night the Blucerchiati earned a creditable 1-1 draw with Germans Schalke 04.
“It has been a month of hard work done in the best possible way, but please, let us not start to fly too high with our ambitions...
“This is a valid squad and can be further enhanced with certain situations on the market.”
Enzo Maresca is expected to be a reinforcement from Malaga.
