Winger Aarons spent the first half of the season on loan at Czech side Slovan Liberec. Rafa Benitez has admitted the club are trying to loan the 23-year-old out again
Greek international Samaris is a long-standing Benitez target. He has just six months left on his contract at Benfica and could move on loan until the end of the season.
The Italian left-back is set to sign on loan from Monaco after struggling following his summer move from Torino. The deal could cost 1m euros up front with a 9m euros buyout to make it permanent.
