Sampdoria are lining up another approach for Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere in January, according to reports in Italy.
The England midfielder is out of contract at the end of the season and looks unlikely to stay at Arsenal, where his prospects look limited.
Sampdoria saw a £7.5million offer rejected last summer.
Before Arsenal’s win over Huddersfield, boss Arsene Wenger told the press on Wilshere: “For him, I’ve repeated it many times, it’s just about being fit,”
“He’s considered like any other player in the squad. He’s at that level now that every opportunity he gets is a good chance for him to commit for a long-term future.
“At the moment, I just think about the interest of our next game. I don’t think long term. For him, I always considered his interest because for me he’s an Arsenal player and has been since he was a kid.
“He’s a football man and I will always decide what is best for him, that is my first priority no matter what kind of decision I make. I have to consider the interests of Jack Wilshere and Arsenal together.”
