Sevilla have completed the season long loan signing of Salvatore Sirigu from Paris Saint Germain.
Sampaoli has completed the signing of the Italian, in a deal both clubs insist does not include an option to buy.
Sirigu, 29, will have to battle Sergio Rico for the starting spot at Sevilla after becoming their 10th signing for the 2016-17 campaign.
PSG’s statement read: “The club wishes Salva all the best for the new challenge that awaits him in Spain.”
Sevilla began the new La Liga season under new head coach Sampaoli with a thrilling 6-4 victory at home to Espanyol and face an away trip to Villarreal on Sunday.
