Ferrero: ‘Torreira worth €50m’

Sampdoria President Massimo Ferrero warned Lucas Torreira “is worth €50m, while for Dennis Praet they need €30-40m and we don’t intend to sell.”

The midfielders have attracted a lot of interest from clubs in Italy and abroad, above all the Premier League and Atletico Madrid.

“Torreira is worth €50m, but he’s not going anywhere in January,” Ferrero told Sportitalia.

“As for Praet, they need €30-40m, but we don’t intend to sell. Anybody who wants our players has to pay the right price.”

This season, 21-year-old Torreira has contributed three goals and one assist in 14 competitive games for Samp.

It’s reported he will receive his first senior call-up to the Uruguay squad in March.

Praet is a 23-year-old Belgium international who was signed from RSC Anderlecht in the summer of 2016 for €10m.

This season, he has provided three assists in 12 Serie A appearances.
