Speculation surrounding the future of Cameroon international Samuel Eto'o continues to intensify with reports in Italy that Sampdoria have signed the Everton man.
Eto'o only arrived at Goodison Park in the summer, but the former Chelsea marksman hasn't had the impact expected and there has been talk of a fresh start elsewhere.
Yesterday it was being reported that Serie A high-fliers Sampdoria were attempting to find the finance to make an audacious bid and it is being suggested that they have succeeded.
Cagliari boss Gianfranco Zola reportedly called Eto'o last night to try and hijack the move, but he was allegedly told that the striker had already made his mind up to join Sampdoria.
If these reports are true then Sampdoria will be frantically at work over the next few days to try and tie up the sale of Bergessio before a rival disrupts the Eto'o move.
