Report: Sampdoria ready to extend forward Éder's contract until 2021Sampdoria's Éder (front) and Fiorentina's José María Basanta fight for the ball during their Serie A match at Stadio Artemio Franchi on 4th April, 2015
Sampdoria are ready to extend forward Éder's contract until 2021, according to reports.
Il Secolo XIX, as reported by Football Italia, claims that i Blucerchiati’s officials are contemplating whether to open negotiations with Éder, whose current deal expires in June 2017.
The 28 year-old has come into contention for a renewal due to his outstanding form for Sampdoria this term.
In 28 appearances, he has managed 12 goals, whilst he also netted on his debut for the Italy national team, in their recent 2-2 draw away to Bulgaria in a Euro 2016 qualifier.
Éder was signed by Sampdoria from Cesena for a reported fee of just €3.5 million in July 2012, but reports suggest he may now be worth around €15 million.
With an opportunity to make a significant profit available, Sampdoria could be temped to cash in, though it is suggested they would prefer to retain Éder and tie him down to a long-term deal.
If the Lauro Müller native was to agree to renew until 2021, then it would ensure that he would see out the best remaining years of his career with Samp, as he would be contracted until he was 35 years-old.
