Sampdoria are set to go head-to-head with Atalanta for the signature of Newell’s Old Boys young star Mauricio Tevez.

The 18-year-old diminutive Argentinian striker has enjoyed a superb breakthrough season with the Santa Fe outfit, and looks destined for a bright future in Europe.

Sport Italia report that Atalanta and Sampdoria have both had scouts to watch Tevez in recent weeks, as they look to step up their interest.

Tevez’s non-European passport may delay any move to the Serie A until the summer however, with both clubs having reached their maximum amount of non-European signings for the season.

The youngster has no relation to his namesake, Serie A and Juventus star Carlos Tevez.
