The former champions of Italy are now back in the top-flight and are looking to make a major impact on their return by adding quality to their ranks.
With this in mind, the Genova-based outfit have now secured Doni - who bagged over 40 goals in just four seasons playing in midfield for Atalanta.
The 30-year-old, however, could not prevent Atalanta from being relegated last term and has now opted to join Samp and make the move straight back to Serie A.
Sampdoria announced the transfer of Doni on Tuesday, along with season long loan deals for Aimo Diana of Parma and Massimo Donati of Milan.
Samop are expected to follow this up with the confirmation that they have signed Japanese star Atsushi Yanagisawa.
The 26-year-old Kashima Antlers striker is set to move to the Luigi Ferraris on a one-year loan deal with a view to a permanent transfer.
They also looking to seal a deal for Juventus star Cristian Zenoni, while extending the current contract of Corrado Colombo.
