Sampdoria’s David Kownacki has confirmed that he would like to stay at loan club Fortuna Dusseldorf on a permanent basis. The 22-year-old Poland Under-21 international forward scored four goals in 10 games for the German Bundesliga outfit when joining them from the Italian Serie A side in the second half of last season.
Kownacki left Sampdoria on bad terms in January and suggested that he has no desire to play for the club again in the future. His stance does not appear to have altered as he revealed this week that a move to Fortuna on a full-time deal is his target this summer.

“I don’t know anything at the moment,” he told the Polish newspaper Super Express. “During the European Championships, representatives of Fortuna talked to Sampdoria, they wanted to pay an important fee for me, but the Blucerchiati raised their asking price and the talks have gone cold.” Kownacki added: “I can’t see myself going back to Sampdoria, I don’t see my future there.
Even after the match with Italy, many Sampdoria fans made me understand that they don’t want to see me at Marassi anymore, that is a clear sign for me. “The club’s behaviour doesn’t seem right to me, something like what happened in the winter.
There was an agreement with Fortuna for my redemption, then after two days of negotiations, the Blucerchiati took the deal off the table. “Fortuna want me, and I want to stay with them. I sincerely hope that this situation can be resolved, I repeat I only want Fortuna.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
