The Roma forward will play next season on loan at Samp, the team where he made his debut in Serie A in 1996.
"I am extremely happy," said Montella. "I have never forgotten Sampdoria or the city of Genoa for that matter despite the distance. I have great memories of my time here and I hope I can reinforce my relationship with the club even more in the next coming season."
