Giampaolo Pazzini could leave AC Milan as early in January according to Tuttosport. The Italian international has found his playing time at the San Siro restricted to cameo appearances off the bench in the last year and with his contract up at the end of the season the Rossoneri are likely to cash in once the transfer window opens.
Fiorentina, Parma and Torino are some of the clubs rumoured to be interested in the players services, as well as Sampdoria who have started the season well under the management of Sinisa Mihajlovic this season with the club sitting in 4th place one point off a Champions League place. A return to the club where Pazzini enjoyed his best goal scoring seasons in his career could well benefit the player.
In the 2009-2010 season Pazzini was one of the key players for Sampdoria, scoring 19 goals as they finished 4th, thus qualifiying for the Champions League knockout rounds, where they were eliminated by Werder Bremen.
