Luis Muriel says goodbye to Italy and Serie A, a place where he has been able to play and grow. Sampdoria have found a deal to sell the Colombian striker to Sevilla on the basis of 20 million EUR plus bonuses and 20% of his future resale.


The Spanish club confirmed the deal and announced the arrival of Argentine midfielder Guido Pizarro, 27, picked up by Mexican League’s Tigres. Sevilla are now thought to be on the tracks of Inter's Chilean international, Gary Medel, who is also liked in South America and Mexico.


The final twist in the story arrives for a player who would go in the opposite direction of Muriel. Another La Liga player interests Sampdoria. Atletico Madrid’s Argentine striker Luciano Vietto (formerly Villarreal) could be the solution to Muriel’s exit, as the Blucerchiati will be on the prowl to reinvest any profit made on the Colombian’s sale.
