Sampdoria are looking at potential replacements for Sinisa Mihajlovic, with Basel boss Murat Yakin top of their list.
The Serbian Coach has done a superb job with the Bluerchiati this term, guiding them to a current 12th place in the table.
As such, reports in the Italian Press in recent weeks have suggested that Inter and Lazio could come in for his services over the summer.
Should that be the case, the Genoese club are willing to let the former midfielder leave, and will hope to target Yakin.
The 39-year-old has been in charge of the Swiss outfit since 2012, leading them to a League and Cup double last year.
