Candreva and Maggiore set for Salernitana

Antonio Candreva is all set to leave Sampdoria for Salernitana and he could be joined by Spezia midfielder Giulio Maggiore.

According to multiple sources, 35-year-old Candreva will have his medical with the Stadio Arechi side on Friday.

It is going to be a loan deal with obligation to buy in case of Serie A safety for €1m, with the veteran signing a two-year contract at €1.5m per season.

Candreva leaves Sampdoria after two years, 70 games and 12 goals.

Salernitana remain active on the transfer market and Sportitalia claim they are close to a deal for Spezia midfielder Maggiore.

He was frozen out of a pre-season match after refusing to play unless his captain’s armband was restored, creating a split within the squad.

His contract is running down, so it was another way of pushing him towards either renewing or accepting a transfer.

Torino had been tracking Maggiore, but it’s now reported Salernitana are close to a fee of €4m plus bonuses.

There are still discussions over personal terms, but should even out at a salary of €1m per season.
