Sampdoria keen on Inter forward

Obinna was impressive in the Beijing Olympics and several clubs have made their interest in the 21-year-old known.

It is believed the Nerazzurri is keen on sending the forward out on loan. The Nigerian was close to joining Everton but he failed to get a work permit in England.

“He is certainly an interesting player,” Marotta told the press.

“But in general, Inter offered more important solutions in the summer, but for various reasons, negotiations did not move forward.”
