Junior Sambia close to joining Salernitana

As reported by Le10Sport, midfielder-turned-right-back Junior Sambia, who has been a free agent since leaving Ligue 1 club Montpellier at the end of his contract last month, is on the verge of joining Italian side Salernitana this summer.

The 25-year-old has seen widespread interest this off-season with Strasbourg leading Crystal Palace in talks to sign the player for much of the summer after Racing submitted a concrete contract proposal last month. Champagne local news outlet L’Est Eclair added that ESTAC Troyes have also drawn up a contract proposal for the player who has been of interest to Marseille and Lille too.

After joining the Ligue 1 side from second tier Niort in 2018 for €2m, the Frenchman has played 162 times for the club, scoring six times while adding 15 assists. A versatile player on the fringes of the MHSC team, Sambia rose to prominence having been repurposed as a flying right-wing-back under Michel der Zakarian.
