“I thank him, the coach and the President. I hope to help Fabio score many goals. We all know him, and I want to help Sampdoria.

“Ranieri always had great respect and esteem, many have told me so. We spoke in recent days, I’m here for him. Ferrero was also decisive.”

The 33-year-old has experience from Juventus, Lazio and the Nerazzurri, and continues to add to his 363 Serie A matches so far.

“I think I bring experience, enthusiasm and positivity,” Candreva added. “Sampdoria have a great history and don’t deserve a similar championship to last season.

“We aim for salvation and we have to keep our feet on the ground. I have a lot of desire, I can give a lot and I want to pass this on to my teammates “
