Murru: “Samp will help me grow – maybe I’ll even score here!”

Sampdoria’s latest signing, Nicola Murru, can defend, attack and cover the entire length of the left flank. The Sardinian full-back joins from Cagliari, where he broke into the first-team six years ago, making his debut the day after his 17th birthday.

The 22-year-old, who has been capped by Italy at every level from the U16s through to the U21s, described himself to Samp TV in an exclusive interview, before revealing some of the targets he has set himself at his new club.

“I play with a lot of grit and determination but I like to get forward and set up my team-mates too.

“Now that I’m at Samp perhaps I’ll be able to score my first goal and maybe even earn myself a call-up to the senior Italy side.”
