Former Juventus attacker Sebastian Giovinco has agreed to a return to Serie A with Sampdoria, the Genoa-based side announced on Wednesday.
Giovinco, 35, left Juve in February 2015 after winning two Serie A titles before spending four seasons with Toronto in the MLS.
The 23-time Italy international, who made his last Azzurri appearance seven years ago, has been a free agent since August after his deal with Saudi Arabia’s Al Hilal ended.
“The forward has penned a short term deal until the end of June this year,” Sampdoria said.
The 1991 Scudetto champions made a move for Giovinco after attacker Manolo Gabbiadini suffered a torn knee cruciate knee ligament in last weekend’s win over Sassuolo.
On Sunday, Samp, who are five points above the relegation zone after just one win in seven games, head to third-placed AC Milan.
