MILAN (AP) - Samuel Eto’o is in talks with Everton to leave the Premier League side and join Sampdoria according to the Italian club’s sporting director Carlo Osti.

Sampdoria has been in talks with Eto’o and his representatives in recent weeks with a view to completing the move for the 33-year-old, who joined Everton from Chelsea in the summer.

On Tuesday, Osti says the deal “is almost finalized” and that Eto’o is negotiating his exit from Everton.

It would be a return to Italy for Eto’o, who spent two seasons at Inter Milan.

The former Cameroon striker was part of Jose Mourinho’s treble-winning Inter team, which lifted the Serie A, Italian Cup and Champions League trophies in 2010.
