Salernitana beat Verona, Angers and Brest to Junior Sambia signing

As reported by Fabrice Hawkins, 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, has agreed to join Italian side Salernitana.

The 25-year-old will sign a four year contract with the side and the final few details of his move are expected to be settled this coming weekend despite interest from Hellas Verona, Angers and Brest. The player has also seen interest from Strasbourg and Crystal Palace this summer after Racing submitted a concrete contract proposal last month. Champagne local news outlet L’Est Eclair added that ESTAC Troyes had also drawn up a contract proposal for the player who has also been monitored by 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 goals 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.
