Sampdoria: Serie A side have signed Birkir Bjarnason and Andrea Petagna

Bjarnason, an Iceland international midfielder, has dual ownership and the 25-year-old only joined Pescara permanently earlier this summer, having spent last season on loan at the now Serie B outfit.

He featured 23 times during his spell at the Stadio Adriatico, scoring twice, but was unable to prevent a 20th-place finish which saw his side suffer relegation from the Italian top flight.

Striker Petagna, 18, has arrived on a season-long loan deal with a view to Sampdoria securing joint ownership of him next summer.

The Italy Under 19 international has only made two first-team appearances for Milan, the club where he progressed through the youth system before making his debut last term.
