According to the French press, Sampdoria have rejected a £2.15m bid for a striker who has been linked with the Swans - Stefano Okaka.
The striker - who has also been rumoured to be attracting interest from both Sunderland and Southampton is now attracting interest from France with Rennes being reported as the team who have made the bid although it has been rejected as it stands.
“Rennes has forwarded an offer of €3 million [£2.15m] to Sampdoria for striker Stefano Okaka. The player would be attracted by the offer of Stade Rennais, but the problem is Sampdoria requires a bigger transfer fee to start the discussions,” the report in RMC states.
Okaka, who scored 4 goals last season, is reported to be wanting a move away from Italy at this point in time and has previously played in this country with Fulham where he scored 3 goals in 13 appearances of which 10 were from the bench.
This is a rumour that has gathered little pace since it was first reported last weekend and I personally cannot see any truth in it but we continue to be linked with the move despite the player not really - in my mind anyway - fitting the criteria of player that we would look for.
